I cant log in to my yahoo messenger. i entered the username and password but it still doesnt work . i have a good internet connection. pls help :(

It says we cant sign you into Yahoo messenger. There might be a problem with your internet connection. Make sure you comp. is connected to the internet. Click troubleshoot to begin a series of tests to try to diagnose the connection problem. ( I reinstalled my YM and then a message popped it said there's a missing plug-in but when I click it, the message was gone and I cant retrieve it anymore)

1) Yahoo are concentrating their efforts to resolving sign-in issues with Messenger 10. You may have to upgrade to this version if you cannot resolve your problems and make use of the troubleshooting software - even if you want to retro install an older version later.
2) users who opt for a default browser other than IE may be neglecting to keep IE up to date unaware that IE plays a crucial part in the running of Yahoo Messenger. I use Firefox as my default but note the amount of cleaning in IE when I run ccleaner.
3) Start your trouble shooting with a clean browser
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.

4) It will be worth making IE your default browser while you troubleshoot
5) Download the latest IE from Microsoft

6) Ensure 'work offline' is unchecked :- > Tools - uncheck Work Offline.
7) Update your support software for IE using the links on this page
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/notices/mstabuguqscripterror.html
After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions
8) If your log-in fails, interrogate the troubleshooting log for 'failed items'
Two Yahoo servers are used for initial log-ins
The log-in server checks your username and password are correct
If this has 'failed' check your IE can access a secure website by signing in here
https://login.yahoo.com/
No luck? check IE settings >Tools > Internet options > Connection tab > LAN > 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' > Advanced - Under 'Proxy address to use' check the info in 'Secure' and 'Port' are correct > OK for each window.
The connection server helps find the right location to synchronise with other servers- if this shows 'failed' change your YM settings to connect via a proxy.This can be done from the menu on the sign in page > Messenger > Preferences > Connection -adjust settings > Apply > OK
If all else fails - try dis-abling your firewall and do a test sign in.

I can't log in to my yahoo messenger


Hey there,
first be sure you entered your username and password correctly. In offline mode select from the top left corner of the messenger window: messenger >
connection preferences. See if your connection is set to connect via a proxy server. If true, Select connect directly to the internet by selecting the radio button. Insert your login details again and try. That should solve it.
Hope this helps

My internet connection is working but it will not let me log into yahoo messenger? Normally the only reason i cant log on is if the internet connection is down but it is not so i am puzzled. I am waiting...


Hi .I understand your frustration.You really want to connect with your friends and you cant..Now if you have internet connection there's no possibility that you cant log on to your yahoo messenger account.It requires same download -upload speed when you use your yahoo messenger application.There might be problem with your password or user name..Or offline mode has been checked.To access Offline setting.Click FILE menu ,see option WORK OFFLINE unchecked it..hope this helps.

I cannot sign in to my yahoo messenger now. why?


make sure you have an internet connection. try opening a website.
if you cannot log in to yahoo messenger what error are you getting?
if password error check your password and user name
in yahoo messenger you don't have to type in the @yahoo.com in the username and the password try to type it in the notepad to check if you typed the correct password.
copy that password then paste it in the password box.
check for your antivirus and firewall setting maybe it is stopping your yahoo messenger from connecting the internet.
also try uninstalling and reinstalling your yahoo messenger. try downloading the latest version
if still don't get any luck logging in.
try to log in to the web base yahoo messenger

Unable 2 use messenger for vista


Hi There!

As i Understand you successfully downloaded yahoo messenger foe vista, however you cannot login using your username and password.
It seems like some of your files are corrupt. Please uninstall yahoo messenger and reinstall again from the link given below,
http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/vista/

Also once you have installed the new yahoo messenger, see that you have internet connection to get connected using your username and password.
