Go Start,Control Panel, Add/remove Programs. Click on Messenger,click remove. This should reinstate the older version. If not, Reboot and download it here;

Yahoo 8.1: http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html

9 messenger is in Beta (testing) form and not working well. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems.

Flash player 10 Does have conflicts,and 9's latest update 9.0.124.0 Can have conflicts with Yahoo and
is causing some Yahoo services to not load.use the link below for a download of Flashplayer #9.0.115.0 should work as it's older then last update. You have to remove the present flash player,(add/remove programs in control panel). reboot then download the older version.

How to download and install Yahoo Messenger in Windows computer


Many people are having problem downloading and installingYahoo! Messenger. Actually this isn't a difficult task, but there are still many computer users who are not very familiar and having problem downloading thecorrect version. In this tutorial I would tell you how to download the Yahoo! Messenger U.S. Version (applicable to all latest versions).

Follow this link (Click Here), once the page isopened, you'll see several menus as shown below:


nonontech_10.jpg


This "Download Now" button will help you download the default yahoo messenger version depending on where you are at the moment (your current Location/Country). If you are in the U.S. no problem, simply click the "Download Now" yellow button to start downloading, but if you are outside the U.S. and would like to install the full featured U.S. version, scroll down the page and locate "United States", click it once:



nonontech_11.jpg


and then click "Download Now" yellow button.

nonontech_12.jpg



On the next page, once again click "Download Now"


nonontech_13.jpg



Now save the file..

Internet Explorer:

nonontech_14.jpg



Google Chrome:


nonontech_15.jpg





Mozilla Firefox:


nonontech_16.jpg



For easy to remember the download location, save it on your "Desktop". Wait for few seconds to complete the download. You can save it anywhere or to your default download folder, but don't forget the location so that you may not miss/loose the download. Google Chrome or Firefox will create a Download folder in the MyDocuments directory.

Now go to Desktop, locate the file "msgr10us" (or to the folder where it was downloaded)


nonontech_17.jpg



(this name might be different, the downloaded version during this tips preparation is Yahoo! Messenger 10) and double-click the file and then "Run"

nonontech_18.jpg



Once you click Run, another window will open up:

nonontech_19.jpg



For faster installation and to make the least changes with my computer settings, I've deselected all the options (red circled) and then click "Next"

nonontech_20.jpg



Now select "Yes, I accept the License Agreement terms andPrivacy Policy above, along with the Yahoo! Terms of Service at: http://docs.yahoo.com/info/terms"and click "Next"

Again click "Install"

nonontech_21.jpg



Watch the screen while the installation is in progress and never click the "Cancel" button:

nonontech_22.jpg

nonontech_23.jpg


And finally after few minutes of waiting, you'll see ascreen like this:

nonontech_24.jpg



Click the "Finish" button, your Yahoo! Messenger is successfully installed and will open up automatically.

This tutorial may not be important for many users, but mayalso be very helpful for many users as well.

Your comments are welcome.

Login yahoo config reset cookies token


here are some suggestions you should check/try if you haven't already.

1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that
the time and date are set.

2. If your password information is not saved, verify that you are typing it in with the
correct case (uppercase or lowercase).

3. Change your password to something smaller (under 10-12 characters), then try signing in again.

4. If you use a firewall (like ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security,WindowsFirewall etc. ), it's possible
that Messenger doesn't have the correct rights to access the Internet, especially since you
upgraded. You may need to re/add Messenger to the allowed list of programs in your firewall
if this is the case.

5. If you disabled your firewall in the past, it still may be blocking Messenger -- try
restarting it and see if that helps the situation. You also might try uninstalling an
installed firewall, to verify that it isn't causing a problem (even if it is disabled).

6. Clear your IE cache and cookies -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then click the Delete Files button, and when that's complete click the
Delete Cookies button.

7. Check your IE Security settings -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that "Check
for server certificate revocation" is unchecked. Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL
3.0' is checked, then click OK

Failed connection


Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo in the info below. Try installing Skype and it's much better for Chatting with Family and Friends.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi, my name is jullie and i have an acer extensa5620 the webcam on it doesn't work in yahoo messenger for some reason, but it does work in msn. I though it was a matter of me not installing yahoo properly,...


you have to go into the "macromedia flash" settings and "allow" the webam to be used by yahoo messenger, whilst in yahoo messenger itself.
If that doesn't work have a look at the webcams actual software
