Meh, it takes forever to start up, and it's probably firewalled.  What does your firewall software (e.g. Microsoft's) say about it?  Change that, get a more responsive app.

Keep in mind that Yahoo has no business model for these free services, so if you don't feel like being sold out, you might be wary of running their tools.

Cannot Log into Yahhoo messenger


1. First, ensure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
2. Confirm that your password is not hacked by loging into your yahoo email account with the same user ID that your using to login to the yahoo messenger, by going to http://mail.yahoo.com.
3. If you are able to log into your email account, your ID is safe.
4. Try to kill yahoo messenger on your system using "Task Manager"
5. To open Task Manager, right click on your computer's task bar at the bottom and click on "Task Manager".
6. Next, click on the "Process" tab in Task Manager, select "YahooMessenger.exe" and click on "End Process" button.
7. If you cannot find "YahooMessenger.exe", then select "Ymsgr_tray.exe" and click on "end process".
8. Now start your yahoo messenger again and try to login. You should be able to login succesfully.

9. If your Internet connection is fine and you have followed the above-mentioned process and still cannot login to yahoo messenger, your system's fire wall is probably obstructing yahoo messenger to access internet.
10. Change the necessary settings on your firewall to leverage access to yahoo messenger.

81003002 yahoo messenger error


Here’s what you need to do in case you encountered Yahoo messenger error 81003002:
  • Double check your Yahoo ID and password. If at several times of sign in attemps but you still get the same error, restart you PC and if you are connected to a modem or router, do the same.
If you are sure that no virus has actually penetrated the system, there is no need to run a system scan.
  • While some blogs advice reinstallation of the software (of the same verision, i.e. v9) and some may even advice removal of v.9 and installation on an older Yahoo messenger version like Yahoo Messenger 8, do not waste your time as I have already done that. The older version of the IM software no longer works.
Again, if you have had error 81003002 while attempting to sign in to Yahoo, open Windows Task Manager (by pressingCLT+ALT+DEL), select Processes and find YahooMessenger.exe and click End Process. Try to do this several times but if it does not work, then try to reinstall the software. Doing this step does not guarantee that you will be able to sign in but its worth the try. The surprising thing is that when it happened to me, I removed Yahoo Messenger v9 on one of the PCs within my nextwork, the next day when my sister checked it out, she was able to sign in. It just simply fixed itself overtime. Huh?! It’s fascinating why did it happen? Could it be that our IP has been blocked by Yahoo for the entire day and restored it afterward? It’s not a virus as I’m 100% sure. It could be a bug though but I’m not certain what caused it so what I did was reinstall the instant messenger again and I was able to sign in to Yahoo messenger finally.
This is what happened and it’s something that I don’t have any technical reason to offer but I suspect that it was really a bug. Have you experienced the same scenario? What did you do?
FYI, if you are in need of using the application but was caught in a situation similar to the one discussed, you can try signing in to these alternative link or sites to get Yahoo! Messenger access.

My Yahoo Messenger wont open?but earlier I still can use it but now when I click the icon nothing is happening.pls advise..


Your process probably just froze.

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.
