Try using the option "Forgotten password" and try to recover it via recovery question which you have set when registering for an account. If the "hacker" didn't change it, then you can easily get your account back by simply changing the password. I do recommend that you use as much characters in the password and include numbers and specials (+,-,.,) to make it harder to brute-force.

I want to register yahoo messenger


You can use a Yahoo! ID to access all things Yahoo!--including email, games and the Yahoo! Messenger instant messenging service. If you already have a Yahoo! email account, you do not have to create a new ID to use Messenger. To create a new Yahoo! ID, you use the same process as creating a new email address, because your Yahoo! Messenger ID is your Yahoo! email account.

1.Open your web browser and navigate to the Yahoo! home page (see Resources).

2.Click "Sign Up" at the top of the site.

3.Fill out the sign-up form. You will need to supply your name and some other personal information, as well as create an ID, password and security questions. For security reasons, you also need to type in a code at the bottom of the form.

4.Click "Create Account" when ready.

5.Sign in to Yahoo! Messenger using the ID and password you just created.

I want to mak a new yahoo ID,pls help me.


Yahoo! Messenger is a popular Internet instant messenger service. Users who cannot log in to their existing account or wish to change to a new account may register a new account for free by visiting the Yahoo! homepage.

Recovery

If you have lost your account's password, you may still be able to use your existing account. Yahoo! has a password recovery system to help you change your password, but you must be able to remember the answers to the security questions you provided when the account was created.
New ID

If you need a new Yahoo! Messenger ID, visit the Yahoo! homepage and click the "Sign Up" link at the top of the page. Follow the steps and you will have a Yahoo! ID once you finish. Use the same log-in information for the Yahoo! Messenger program.
Precaution

Always remember your Yahoo! Messenger ID to avoid having to register multiple accounts. If you fear you may end up forgetting it, you may want to write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a safe spot.


I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Hi, that error occurs only when you signed in or log in to another computer or device. There must have been someone who knows your password and e-mail address. Please change your password for security purposes. To change your password please follow this instruction:
1. Sign in on your account then click on your "yahoo id" then hit on "account info" as shown below.

I have been unable to open my yahoo IM for days,


If your security settings are weak, hackers can easily obtain and change your user id and password. First, I would make sure the CAPS lock key is off, and reenter your user id and password. Second, if you have Yahoo! Mobile or a similar service, sign out of yahoo on your mobile phone - the IM may be detecting that you are signed in at multiple locations, thus giving you the error message. Third, if all else fails, click on the "forgot password?" link on the Yahoo homepage, and enter in the security information. If if fails to retrieve your user id and password information, call Yahoo - but be prepared to answer their security questiosn - they have to verify that you, yourself, are not a hacker.
