    The web cam worked from elsewhere, but re-installing Yahoo 9.0 even though I'd only just installed it before the webcam, did the trick!

    It's obviously an order thing ;-)

Please check your webcam from other applications. if it works properly then re-install yahoo messenger and also install Dot Net Framework 3.5, which you can get from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=333325fd-ae52-4e35-b531-508d977d32a6&displaylang=en

hope this will work for you!

How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

YAHOO IM 9 and 10. When i have the chat window open to a specific friend the webcam function is not avaiable for use, or the photo share option. Then others it is fully functional. Is there a problem if...


PhotoSharing is possible with Yahoo IM 8,9 and 10
About Webcam sharing, if you are using Yahoo 10 and other person is using yahoo 9 or 8, the Video call will not work since Yahoo 10 will check for version compatibility

you can bypass this by asking the other person to click on the option, View Webcam, this will initiate an invitation sent to you, you can accept it and the other person can see you. vice versa you can click on view webcam and the other person has to accept.

Problem signing into Yahoo Messenger.


Try the following:
click preferences > click connect directly to the internet (again..even though it probably is checked) > choose your connection and connect

Have had the same issue in the last few days and that is what resolved it for me.
