The easiest way to solve Yahoo Messenger trouble connecting issues for non...


"The easiest way to solve Yahoo Messenger trouble connecting issues for non computer experts"

There are a lot of issues coming out nowadays from computer users around the globe. Trouble accessing yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger is one of their primary concern. Others opinion stated that it was the new system implemented by yahoo developer to prevent abuse and against its terms. Spamming is widely spreading. Is this the reason why its hard to log in?

I, myself have experienced this. Unable to log in for more than a month.

Recently, I found out that Yahoo Messenger rely its connection through Windows Internet Explorer. Which means that if its hard for you to log in to yahoo messenger, better to do is upgrade your Internet Explorer.

What about computers using different browser? it doesn't matter. If you want to improve the connection of your Yahoo Messenger, Install the latest version of Internet Explorer that is compatible with your present operating system (WinXP, WinXP-32, WindowsVista, WindowsVista-64). Just install it and don't default it as your browser (if the default is different browser)

After upgrading, it is important to uninstall your Yahoo Messenger and install it again. Or if possible upgrade to a newer version too. After successful installation, restart your computer. You will see the big difference. Log in in just a second. Forget those frequent trials logging in, asking experts what to do and asking friends to help you fix it. Few days gone by and no one can help you.

Try this tip. It will surely helps.

Iam difficulty in logging in yahoo messenger


There are basic issues why its hard for you to use log in your yahoo messenger. Your internet connection is not stable. The spelling of your user id and password is incorrect. Watch out for Capital letters. For laptop users, the firewall settings is on. These are only basic steps to consider why its hard to connect it.

Yahoo Messenger rely its connection on the internet through Microsoft Internet Explorer. If your internet explorer is out of date better upgrade it.

The best suggestion to improve the connection of your Yahoo Messenger is to upgrade the Internet Explorer of your computer. Compatible to the system software you are currently using. (Example if your operating system is windows vista, Install Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista)
After you upgrade your Internet Explorer, uninstall the yahoo messenger on your computer and then reinstall again. After doing this, restart your computer and try to log in. You will surely see the difference.

These are the link files that you will need to upgrade.
1. Internet Exporer 8 - select your operating system and download IE8
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 - download and install this after you remove previous version of yahoo messenger on your computer

(Note: if you are using different web browser, It doesn't matter. Install Internet Explorer 8 and just don't default it as your web browser)

Try this one. you will surely like the outcome.

Please comeback and give me some ratings if your connection is establish.

Thank You for using Fixya.

I would like to help you with your issue. but we have to check the following first

> Step 1: Test Your Internet Connection
> Step 2: Verify Your Yahoo! ID and Password
Open Internet explorer and www.mail.yahoo.com
Check by sign in to you account

Make sure that you can access secure pages from Internet Explorer
Try to sign in to Yahoo! by going to the Yahoo! sign in page and enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 4: Verify Credentials
Verify that the same Yahoo! ID and password you used before in the last step also works in the online version of Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger for the Web:
http://webmessenger.yahoo.com/
enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 5: Check Connection Settings

Messenger error 81003005


Hi,

here are some causes: Firstly; this error occurs when your connection preferences are not properly set. I'm not talking about your Yahoo! ID and Password here, but you may need to adjust certain features depending on what network you're on. Let's says for example, if a firewall protects your network, it may block yahoo messenger when it tries to connect to the server. You need to change your connection settings, click the Messenger menu in yahoo messenger and select Connection Preferences. Select Firewall With No Proxies. Select your Internet Connection type from the pull-down menu at the bottom and enter your Home Country if the adoptions aren?t grayed out. Click OK and login again using the new settings. If this option doesn?t work, click Connection Preferences in Yahoo! Messenger again and select No Network Detection. Try to login again using the new settings. In some instances, you may need to provide yahoo messenger with the IP address of your firewall or proxy server (you can get this information from your network administrator or from your Internet service provider). Click Messenger and select Connection Preferences again. Select Use Proxies. Enable either the HTTP Proxy or the SOCKS Proxy as needed and provide the proper address. Click OK and login again using the new settings.Secondly; if you are using IM9 there are sign in problems. This is what yahoo has to say. Try an updated version of Yahoo! Messenger 9.0(9.0.0.2128). This latest build includes a fix for the sign-in issues that have been affecting some users. If you were seeing an error code?81003005? when trying to sign in, this latest version may fix that problem. Even if you were experiencing a different kind of sign-in issue, I recommend installing this latest version. Hope it was helpful!

Thanks.

Error 81003005


Have yo ever been able to connect just that this error is usually to do with a server side issue on the yahoo side,If It does not correct Itself then you could try this...
Yahoo uses by default your Internet explorer settings so just check these and try to connect again.
Open you internet explorer
  • click tools>>>Internet option>>>connection tap
  • Under Dial-up and Virtual Private Network setting
  • Double click your current internet connection that you are using now
  • Make sure that under Proxy Server, the ‘Use a proxy server for this connection’ is UNCHECKED
  • Now back to connection tab
  • Click LAN setting
  • Make sure that under Proxy Server, the ‘Use a proxy server for this connection’ is UNCHECKED
  • Click OK>>OK
  • Try to logging to your Yahoo messsenger again.
Good luck

Errror 81003005 wont let me sign in to yahoomessneger


ok, in my case i remembered I tried using a proxy on internet explorer and forgot to put it off, so the proxy connection was still on even though the proxy was dead.

It now a proven fact to me that internet explore settings are linked to yahoo mess!
so make sure your internet explorer is working ok without proxy:

1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
6. Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger account.

good luck =)
