Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

I am unable to follow links to yahoo profiles on yahoo messenger.

I get an error message saying I need to go to my control panel and then go to folder options and select a program to execute the links. But I do not know what settings to change once I am in Folder Options.

    I am unable to follow any link sent to me. I can not open an email alert, the help tab on the buddy list (Pressing F1), anything that requires me to be forwarded to a website.

Good day.Your problem is that you have downloaded the yahoo installer and your computer doesnt know which installer to choose for your package.Go to the folder options and bind the .exe applications with the istaller icon or executable files.

When i download yahoo messenger 10 it says, "Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. please check firewall settings and retry installation."


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
Make sure your IE is up to date (IE 8) - even if you run another browser as default. IE is coded with Yahoo Messenger
If you do use another browser - check that IE is not set to 'Work Offline' under 'Tools' and has a red X through globe allowing it Internet access
The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder. These conflicts will be enough for the firewall to hoist a red flag
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.

If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

If you have Vista you may be denied being able to delete folders - in this case you will have to disable the 'User Account Control'
Start > Control Panel (Home) > User Accounts and Family Safety > Add or remove user accounts > Continue > Go to the main User Account Page > Turn User Account Control On or Off > Continue > Uncheck control box > OK

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.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

Unable to run messenger


Its a pity you chose to re-install - a simple toggle of the connections from 'Direct' to 'Proxy' was probably all you needed.
As for your current installation problem:-
You do not need to adjust your firewall for uploading Messenger
