Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Yahoo messenger screen is blank

I have Vista OS, it came installed with IE7. This PC is new only to me, but it's an up-to-date model. When I first got connected to the web, I could browse but I couldn't navigate inside the pages, hardly any buttons worked, and I couldn't access my email in any of my varied accounts. Certain sites like Office Live I couldn't get in at all. Finally, by downloading Opera I was able to go and get Firefox as well, so all problems have been solved except for the fact that I still can't get Yahoo Messenger to work. Nothing comes up on the screen. No sent messages (I can see them being typed) and nothing when friend send messages back. No IMvironments, no games, not even the plug-in screen will show up. What's wrong? Firefox is reading Messenger, but still nothing.

I cant open my hide messesages in yahoo messenger it says a runtime error


You do not give your OS or a copy of the Runtime Error

Most Runtime errors in Messenger will be IE
IE is coded with Messenger and has to be kept clean and up to date

XP.

I can't download yahoo msn 10, can u help me?


Open http://messenger.yahoo.com/ - click download - it will check your OS and download link will come - click download pressing control key if your browser has POP up blocker enabled. Click Save and save the file  msgr10us.exe on desktop. It will be downloaded within few seconds. Then run the program from desktop. Choose custom installation  to reduce the time needed and installation of few added programs or tool bars - remove the option those you don't want. Click next - Tick the License Agreement - click next. Now Click install and wait few minutes - it will automatically download files (approx 25MB) and get installed. Now you can use yahoo messenger putting ID password.

Hope you may install well with the solution.

I cant use yahoo 10 in my pc they give me a error all the time i cant sign in


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/08/18/help-with-sign-on-issues-in-yahoo-messenger-9-0/

My own advice is:-

1) Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser
Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Use the settings as downloaded - Click on the 'Run Cleaner' tab until '0 bytes removed'

2) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

3) Have more than one browser available for trouble shooting. Keep browsers up to date to incorporate all the patches - I run Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Keep one browser clear of add-ons and plug-ins.
Always have the browser you are using designated as default - even if you only have one

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date if you have it

5) Sign in here to reset cookies
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '@Yahoo.com' from your username to sign in

7) Check the date and time are correct on your computer

8) If you have your settings to sign in automatically and recently changed your password check this out
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/messenger/mstacantsignin.html

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.Disable your firewall long enough to make a trial sign-in

10) Messenger 10 now carries a troubleshooting log - if you have a degree in computer science the results may be of some use

11) AVG free users may be interested in this forum
http://forums.avg.com/ca-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=40313

12) Time to consider a re-install.
Save your Profile folder to hard disk, if you wish to retain your message archives.
Download 'Revo free' and uninstall in the 'Advanced'mode. This will scan your C drive and Registry for anything left behind after it runs the yahoo uninstall software. Delete everything it finds.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
Run ccleaner
Restart your pc
Download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Yahoo message gets to 99% and stops installing. i


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.

Cannot install yahoo messenger 9.0.0.2128


Vista is the key as its looking for the administrator to complete the installation
You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
