I just spent the last 6 hours fighting the same problem. Trying to re-load an old version of YM the installation would fail at the last minute and tell me to run it from an administrators account - even though I'm set up as an administrator on my work PC.

Finally fixed the problem by uninstalling (run Unwise.exe in the messenger directory to remove YM). Then restarted the computer in Safe mode and installed from there with no errors.

Hope this helps.

You do not have administrative rights to the PC that you are trying to install the software on. You can do 1 of the following 3 things:

#1: log in as an administrator and install the software.

#2: Add your current user account to the local administrators group, thus allowing you to install software

#3: you can shift+right click on the file used to install, choose "run as", and use administrative credentials to perform the install under the current user account.

If you need further assistance performing any of these steps, I can go into further detail

Hope this helps!

did you uninstall the previous ym first before installing beta 9 of ym?
uninstall the old ym first then.

download a clean copy,
http://messenger.yahoo.com/win

before starting to install, try to disable momentarily your firewall.
see if there are many memory resident in your computer that's consuming the resources of your computer. tune up utilities 2007 should do the trick

check out ur audio driver in device manager look for update.
you can update in device manager but sometimes(more often than not) get reply latest driver installed.
well the latest driver isnt always the best.
if this the case download a driver from hp site .if driver still no better or worse;you can roll back driver in device mannager to previous one.
could try update codecs (encode/decode) as different codecs have different compression ratio's.

I cannot open my ym.. every time i click the icon and try everything but still no ym appear.. i already scan my pc with with anti virus and everything.. but nothing happen.. i uninstall and reinstall it...


hello.

Please see in the right bottom corner of the monitor(taskbar) you can see the YM icon system tray. you can right click that and then sign in.

If not found there. maybe u need to unistall the YM. restart the computer and then download the YM again or directly install it from the net.

if this solution not solve the issue, please take me a picture of the whole desktop for me to see what is on it. and make some solution.

are you using the latest YM? why not try downloading the latest YM but before installing it, uninstall some unwanted programs or those that you dont use anymore...free some disk space.

then try installing the latest YM now.

hope this helps.
