I am suffering this, the best thing I could do is go to the Yahoo Messenger directoru and set the yahoomessenger.exe compability mode with windows xp sp3.
suddenly the y!m got tamed.
I'm using y!7m with win7 64 bit right now :)
At the top of your friends list window click on Contacts and make sure the "show offline contacts" is checked, this will make your friends show on your list whether they are online or offline.After checking this and none of them still show up on your list then you have an internal problem with messenger and you need to uninstall messenger Completely so you can get rid of the corrupted file that is causing your problem and get a clean install.When you uninstall not all of the yahoo messenger files are deleted from your Program Files, so if the problem you are having is caused by a corrupted file then the problem will still be there when you install it again.So what you need to do is uninstall messenger then go to your Program files and delete the yahoo folder. This will get rid of all remaining files especially the corrupted ones.
To uninstall you need to click on the Start button(the one on your task bar) then go to Control Panel then to Add/Remove Programs, find yahoo messenger in the list and click on it then on uninstall.<< this is for XPTo uninstall in Vista click on start then Control Panel then on Uninstall a Program in the new window find yahoo messenger click it to uninstall it.To find and delete the Yahoo folder click on the START button in your task bar then on My Computer then C: drive then Program Files then right click on the Yahoo folder and Delete it. It's a good idea tI do recommend you get the 184.108.40.2061 version as it is the most stable a bug free version of messenger !!
When you download it just save it to your desktop and then run the installer from there.If you have XP just double click on it to start the install.To install messenger on Vista you need to download messenger to your desktop. Then Right click on the installer and then click on "Run as Administrator" to get it to install correctly.you will not lose your contacts by uninstalling messenger as they are saved on the yahoo servers.o reboot your PC now to make sure it's all gone out of your system.
The system tray (in short: systray, nowadays also called taskbar notification area) is the icon strip normally located near the right end of the task bar, next to the clock.
Some Windows XP installations show a peculiar defect in that some systray icons disappear or, rather, do not appear, when the system is booted and the user logs on. The problem is even more prevalent on systems with autologon. The most frequently affected icons seem to be the speaker icon (sound volume) and the power/energy icon.
This has nothing to do with the hide inactive icons settings. The defect shows up when you don't have any icons set for hiding.
In any case, please make sure for now that you haven't activated that setting. Right-click the task bar, click on Properties, uncheck the last check box. You can reactivate it later if all other problems are identified or solved.
Check your Startup folder and the starter registry entries through Start, Run..., type: msconfig, press Enter, to check whether the programs are really started at system start, or use Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) to see whether the processes are running.
If you are working with a PC that has Windows XP, probably if the YM don't successfully install perhaps you need an XP Pack2 OS. The old version of the Yahoo Messenger will best fit the older Windows Professional. If you need to upgrade yahoo, format your computer with XP P2 or other higher versions like Win8, Win Vista etc.
Press (on your keyboard) Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time and the task manager should come up. If you have windows vista then select task manager when given a list of options.
--> Go to the Tab that says "Processes" --> Look for the name "YahooMessenger.exe" on the left hand side. and click it to highlight it. --> Click "End Process" on the bottom right hand side. --> Its going to ask do you want to end process. Just say yes. Or it might hesitate for a minute and say the task is not responding. Simply hit "End" --> Once you no longer see "YahooMessenger" in the list, double the yahoo messenger icon to bring it back up.
If this still does not work your going to have to unistall and re-install the program.
