Re: downloading issues

What web browser are you using(i.e: firefox or IE)? I havn't had the chance to pick up a copy of Vista but I read that there is a download folder where all files downloaded are kept the path is: C:\users\your name\downloads). Please let me know if everything worked out.

Hi i use YM When i try to call pc to pc or if sombedy try to call me it crashes. Can you help me please ? Thank you !

Hello motus50,
I see you have a Yahoo Messenger problem. I would recommend you install a virus scanner. I use Malwarebytes (FREE) and Avast Antivirus (FREE) These two programs will find the malware hidden on your computer. Malware can be the cause of your computer crashing. Possible Result of issue: Yahoo Could be running a certain .dll file. That file could be infected. So the virus is just infecting your computer while crashing it. Just download those two programs and scan & remove them.
Try it again. And it should work. If the problem still persists. Try downloading a older version of yahoo messenger.

I have windows xp SP! installed on my Dell laptop. When I tried installing Yahoo Messenger 9.1, 10 and 11 versions, I have been always getting this error message "incorrect line command...


Have you had Yahoo Messenger on the computer before? If so make sure it is completely uninstalled before trying to install it again.You may need to use the Windows installer cleanup utility to do it completely if it has already been uninstalled.
There are more recent versions of the Windows Installer:-

Also please try an upgrade the computer to sp3 if its not:-

Thanks & Regards

    Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe

    ·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

    To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

    All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

    CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

    Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

    Select the "C:" drive.

    Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

    Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

    Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

    CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

    Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

    Click the "C:" drive.

    Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

    Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

    DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.


    CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

    DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

    Click the link below to download Yahoo Messenger…

    Click the "Download Now" button.

    Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.


    Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

    Select the "C:" drive.

    Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

    Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

    I cant download yahoo messenger it say that has to do with my firewall i've turn off firewall but still cant download messenger

    Do not turn off firewall it will not allow to install the messenger.
    Turn on firewall and restart your computer and reconnect with internet and try to download messenger.
    If you are not downloading messenger from legal or untrusted website then it is familiar to do that for computer.

    Windows XP Media Center edition... get a ''Cannot Find Windows Messenger'' error when starting up media center... wouldn't bother me - but my son just got an XBox 360, and it cannot connect to the PC due...

    This should a simple fix to enable Messenger if you have your XP disk handy.

    Go to "Add/Remove programs"

    You will see an add/remove windows components, or something similar.

    If the Windows Messenger box is already ticked, untick it and OK it then exit out and go back to this.

    Now Tick the box. It may ask you to insert your CD.

    Once done, OK it again and restart your PC.


    If this still causes issues, try downloading Windows Live Messenger (about 175MB) and run it directly from the website. Saving to yourPC has issues and often does not work.

    I'm not really clued up with Xbox and other game boxes, so all I have done here is to activate Messenger in one format or another on you PC.

    Cannot make a full connection to yahoo messanger it shuts down.


    First please uninstall the yahoo and install the latest version of yahoo messenger from net. Next please follow the step by step troubleshooting if you are still facing the issue:

    Instructions Step 1:Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
    Step 2:Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
    Step 3:Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
    Step 4:Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
    Step 5:Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.
    Tips & Warnings Follow your computer system's instructions for checking or modifying the server's TCP ports. Ports numbered 5050, 443 or 80 must be open for the voice features to work.
    Install the audio codec software that comes with Windows. PC calls and voice chat require that the software is enabled on your computer.

    Thanks for contacting Fixya.
