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.

Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.

4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

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.
