Cannot login to Yahoo Messenger 9 - Yahoo Messenger 8 acting up

Our sysadmin at the company where I work recently made some changes to the back end, possibly affecting yahoo messenger, something I need to confirm via this forum. I had yahoo messenger ver 9 installed on my comp. I have not been able to log in - I changed the settings to use proxy - entered the proxy server and the port address that we use to access the internet. This has not worked. I uninstalled ver 9 and installed ver 8, and the results have been strange. For one of my addresses, I can login without issues using wither the "firewall without proxies" and "use proxies options". For another address, it logs in and then Yahoo reports incorrect password/username. Minimise this window and I see myself signed in but none of my messenger chat contacts are visible. This is all rather frustrating. My questions: (1) How can I get YM 9 to work - especially since I cannot log in even after I have selected use proxy option, and entered the proxy server name and port (2) Why would ver 8 be acting up on one account and not for the other? For bith I do get the upgrade notification. Thanks for your help my yahoo messenger just stopped loging in yesterday and it was working fine yesterday earlier time. i tryed loging in with my cell and i tryed loging in on my computer still not working is yahoo having problems or something ?

I forgot my password for mssnger, what cani do?


I am afraid the only one who can find the forgotten password back is YOURSELF, and right on your computer. If you really forgot everything related to your messenger. Then take a try of this password recovery software to recover lost password. It will help you recover forgotten login password for Chat Messengers like MSN Messenger, Windows LIVE Messenger, Google Talk etc. Good luck and regards.

About signing in in yahoo messenger


Yahoo messenger presently is undergoing few changes at the server end. In order to login efficiently I use to run two ping commands. To do so, press on start button click on run button type cmd in the box and hit ok button. In the black window now type exactly the same in the bracket remember brackets are not included in the command (ping www.yahoo.com -t) don't forget to put space after .com before typing -t. -t is hyphen t. repeat this message once more and you will be able to login through messenger. Happy chatting

Cannot Log into Yahhoo messenger


1. First, ensure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
2. Confirm that your password is not hacked by loging into your yahoo email account with the same user ID that your using to login to the yahoo messenger, by going to http://mail.yahoo.com.
3. If you are able to log into your email account, your ID is safe.
4. Try to kill yahoo messenger on your system using "Task Manager"
5. To open Task Manager, right click on your computer's task bar at the bottom and click on "Task Manager".
6. Next, click on the "Process" tab in Task Manager, select "YahooMessenger.exe" and click on "End Process" button.
7. If you cannot find "YahooMessenger.exe", then select "Ymsgr_tray.exe" and click on "end process".
8. Now start your yahoo messenger again and try to login. You should be able to login succesfully.

9. If your Internet connection is fine and you have followed the above-mentioned process and still cannot login to yahoo messenger, your system's fire wall is probably obstructing yahoo messenger to access internet.
10. Change the necessary settings on your firewall to leverage access to yahoo messenger.

I cant use yahoo 10 in my pc they give me a error all the time i cant sign in


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/08/18/help-with-sign-on-issues-in-yahoo-messenger-9-0/

My own advice is:-

1) Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser
Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Use the settings as downloaded - Click on the 'Run Cleaner' tab until '0 bytes removed'

2) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

3) Have more than one browser available for trouble shooting. Keep browsers up to date to incorporate all the patches - I run Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Keep one browser clear of add-ons and plug-ins.
Always have the browser you are using designated as default - even if you only have one

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date if you have it

5) Sign in here to reset cookies
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '@Yahoo.com' from your username to sign in

7) Check the date and time are correct on your computer

8) If you have your settings to sign in automatically and recently changed your password check this out
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/messenger/mstacantsignin.html

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.Disable your firewall long enough to make a trial sign-in

10) Messenger 10 now carries a troubleshooting log - if you have a degree in computer science the results may be of some use

11) AVG free users may be interested in this forum
http://forums.avg.com/ca-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=40313

12) Time to consider a re-install.
Save your Profile folder to hard disk, if you wish to retain your message archives.
Download 'Revo free' and uninstall in the 'Advanced'mode. This will scan your C drive and Registry for anything left behind after it runs the yahoo uninstall software. Delete everything it finds.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
Run ccleaner
Restart your pc
Download Yahoo Messenger from here.
