Re: Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change...
Just stay calm ...this was ( you probably already know ) a temporary issue from the yahoo tech crew...and it was from the changes that they made last month or so on the server ...if your problem its still actual ...just contact yahoo suport ..and let them know .....some I heard remain with this kinda problems after they messed up that server ... anyway ..a solution is to make another account and import all your contacts...and thats all...sometimes they do not fix problems like this ....

For that's problem uninstall first your yahoo messenger. click start > click Control panel > click Add and remove programs and choose yahoo messenger programs then uninstall. if finish uninstall restart your PC. and install again to download yahoo mesenger latest version click the following link http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/ . if finish downloading double click msgr11us.exe, follow software step by step installation instructions. if finish try to sign in.
Let me known if not yet open your yahoo messenger.
Click on the above link and follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure to check the top of the screen. Most programs will not download unless you click on the security bar that pops up and say download program. It's a security feature.
Also try the following: Uninstall the Yahoo Messenger completely from Add/Remove programs. Then Open My Computer >> C Drive >> Program Files >> Yahoo! folder and delete the Messenger folder from within there. Now download the Yahoo messenger again and install it and then check.
if you cant remove it from add remove programs, you can try to use window installer cleanup utility. you can download it from this website : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 . if it doesnt work you can use CCleaner and download it from this website : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ . to run windows installer clean up utility,after you have successfully installed it on your computer, it should show up on all programs after clicking start button. now you cna look for yahoo mesenger and click delete. if you want to use ccleaner here is a screenshot of the tools window, http://www.ccleaner.com/screenshots/tools-uninstaller
look for yahoo messenger and click delete entry. after using ccleaner, restart the computer and uninstall it as well using add remove programs. you can also uninstall yahoo messenger following this path: my computer/local disk c/program files/yahoo/ and then delete the folder that say messenger.
An easy way to fix this problem would be to:
1) close yahoo messenger 2) using windows explorer go into the following folders: Program Files/Yahoo/Messenger 3) Now delete the folder *cache* 4) Restart Yahoo messenger, and you'll be able to change your Display picture.
While on yahoo messenger go to Messenger at the top left, My Contact Details, a box will open.. at the top of the box there will be a lil box that says Nickname under it.. put whatever u want your name to be in that box and hit Save/Close.
