Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe


·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.

TO INSTALL:

CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

Click the link below to download Yahoo Messenger

http://messenger.yahoo.com/webmessengerp…


Click the "Download Now" button.

Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.

COPY MESSAGE ARCHIVE

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

ENABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S

Go to your 360 page at http://360.yahoo.com , and upload a .jpg picture, mark it as primary, then go to "My Profile" / "Edit My Info" in Answers. and select the picture.

You can also create an avatar at = http://avatars.yahoo.com/
At http://avatars.yahoo.com ,
Go to "My Profile" "Edit My Info" in Answers and select the avatar.

Click on My Profile/My 360 Profile/My Page/Edit Personal Photos/Browse/
select the photo from a folder in your hard drive and click on it/Save/Edit Personal Photos/Set as primary/Save
Also you can open an Instant Message box with anyone, then go to the top and click on VIEW then click on MY DISPLAY/ IMAGE OPTIONS, then click on CHOOSE A PICTURE. It will then permit you to choose from the pictures on your computer. If you have none on your hard drive, it offers an avitar icon you can use. You can use the same steps when you want to change the picture. Just the last step would be change my picture.

My display picture will not change in messenger box


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
