    Have you tried reinstalling without uninstalling the Yahoo! Messenger that current exists (that you cannot find) ?

    What happens when you try to sign in? Do you get an error, or does it just do nothing? If you get an error, what does it say? Thanks.

Hello ! My name is Cristi and i have a problem with my yahoo ID and e-mail account. From almoust 3 months...


First, try signing in with your Yahoo! ID here: https://imo.im/

You should be able to log in there. To fix error 81003002, you will need to do a complete removal and reinstallation of Yahoo! Messenger. I will give you 2 of the best ways to go about this:

The first way is to use Revo Uninstaller. (Recommended, requires a program installation)
( found here: http://www.revouninstaller.com/start_freeware_download.html )
You can use Revo to uninstall Yahoo! Messenger, making sure that you do at least a moderate level scan of your system using Revo. Delete everything that Revo asks you to. This will make sure that all files and keys related to Yahoo! Messenger are also erased from the system.

The second way to uninstall is to do it manually. (NOT Recommended, no installations)
Open your start menu, then click Control Panel. Navigate to "Add/Remove Programs". Find Yahoo! Messenger in the list, then uninstall it. Reboot if prompted. After it successfully uninstalls (reboot if prompted), go to "C:Program FilesYahoo", or if it is not there, "C:Program Files(x86)Yahoo". If you see a folder called "Messenger", delete it.

Reboot your computer, then reinstall the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. You should be able to login now. If you are unable to log in, and you uninstalled Yahoo! Messenger using the second method, then you will have to use the first method.

Why can't I install yahoo messenger 10.0 successfully? after attempting to install, an error will prompt which says ''yahoo messenger did not install properly; this may be due to an open application or...


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 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.

I can not download yahoo 9.0


check the firewall settings of your server/administrator. the application download has been blocked for security and other purposes.

if they won't allow you to, try to download it with other servers that have no restrictions.

All my contacts are missing from my contact list


This is what MS told me to do..but did not work. Finally they told me to use 8.5. Try if it helps you.

Messenger Connectivity Log & Contacts Log

A. Delete the old log files.

Right-click the Start button and then click Explore. In the window that opens, click Folder Options on the Tools menu. Click the View tab, and then make sure that Show Hidden files and folders option is selected.

1. Click Start, click Run, type %userprofile%\Local Settings\, and then click OK.
2. Double-click the Application Data folder, double-click Microsoft, and then double-click Messenger.
3. In the Messenger folder, look for the MsnMsgr.txt file and delete it.

Note: If you get an error stating that you cannot delete MsnMsgr, please make sure that Windows Live Messenger is not running on the background. To check this, open the Task Manager window and check whether the msnmsgr.exe is running on Processes. If it is, select the application and click End Process. If you are prompted, click Yes.

To open the Task Manager: Click Start and then Run. Type taskmgr.exe and click OK.

4. If you don't see the MsnMsgr.txt file, please proceed to step B to enable the connection logging.

B. Turn on connection logging if the feature is not yet enabled.

1. Start Windows Live Messenger but do not sign in.
2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3. In the left navigation bar, click Connection.
4. Click Advanced Settings.
5. Under Connection Logging, make sure that the Save a log of my server connections to help troubleshoot connection problems check box is selected.
6. Click OK.

C. Try to sign in to Windows Live Messenger again to replicate the error or issue being encountered with the service. A new connectivity log file, MSNMsgr.txt, is created the moment a sign in attempt to the service is made. When errors or issues are encountered, the connection logging feature will capture their logs.

D. Access the newly generated MsnMSgr.txt by following the steps in step A. Please look also for the ContactsLog.txt file. Please attach the files on your e-mail response to us.

Copy of the Windows Live Contacts folder

The Windows Live Contacts folder can be accessed on this path:

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows logon name \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

Note: Windows Logon name is the logon name that you use to sign in to Windows.

Right-click the Windows Live Contacts, select Send To, and then select Compressed (zipped) Folder. A compressed file is created in the same folder. Please upload the file to Windows Live SkyDrive and we will retrieve the file from there.

To access Windows Live SkyDrive, please do these:

  1. Open your Internet browser and visit http://skydrive.live.com.
  2. Sign in using your Messenger ID and password.
  3. Click on the Public folder.
  4. Click Add files and locate the zipped Windows Live Contacts folder. Upload it.
  5. Once the file is successfully uploaded, please send us the URL or link on your e-mail response so we can download it.

While we are working on this issue, we suggest that you temporarily use the earlier version of Windows Live Messenger (v8.5) so you can continue to communicate with your friends. Please note that to be able to install the previous version, you need to uninstall all the Windows Live Essentials programs (i.e. version 2009 of Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, etc.).

1. Exit Windows Live Messenger.
2. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl and press Enter
3. On the Add or Remove Programs window, click on Windows Live Essentials, and then click Uninstall/Change
4. Select Uninstall, click Continue.
5. Under Select the programs you want to uninstall, check all the Windows Live programs shown and then click Continue.

Windows Live Messenger 8.5 can be downloaded from:
