Hi.

you can try the following .

If you have Vista:
Go to start>search
Type "run"
Proceed as follows.

or


If you have Windows XP:
Go to start>run
Type in "msconfig"
Go to the tab that says "startup"
Uncheck Yahoo Messenger.
Click "OK"
Restart.



I'm sure you can also do this by going through the Yahoo Messenger's properties and options. I don't use IM, so I can't guide you through that.

I woul like to run yahoo mesenger at start up wiht out having to ok it evry time i restat my pc. in vista i had no problem but, wiht win 7 i canot figure it out


When you install Yahoo! Messenger on your computer, the program is adds itself to your computer's startup list. Each time you boot your computer, Yahoo! Messenger, and all other programs included in the list, starts automatically. Having too many programs on the list might reduce your computer's performance. To prevent Yahoo! Messenger from loading and popping up on your screen each time you boot your computer, you must remove it from the startup list. Yahoo! Messenger allows you to disable automatic startup through the program's preferences menu.
1.Open Yahoo! Messenger and log in your account.
2.Click the "Messenger" button at the top of the Yahoo! Messenger.
3.Click "Preferences" and the "Yahoo! Messenger Preferences" dialog box appears on your screen.
4.Click "General" and remove the checkmark from the box labeled "Automatically Start Yahoo! Messenger."
5.Click "Apply" and click "OK" to close the dialog box.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

    My yahoo messenger when opened says "cannot load resource DLL"


    The error message indicates your operating system is not able to load one of the files required for Yahoo messenger to work.

    To make sure Yahoo messenger is installed properly, download the installation files and save them to your desktop.

    Once you have the installation file...

    Open the control panel and uninstall the existing version of Yahoo messenger. This will remove the program from your computer and clear out the registry entries that were created during the first install of Yahoo messenger.

    Reboot your pc and then run the Yahoo messenger installation file you downloaded to your desktop.

    The system reboot is a precautionary measure to ensure that none of the files used by Yahoo messenger are loaded into memory during the reinstall.
