In yahoo messenger message don't appear and how to enable gaming mode?

Thefirst thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in InternetExplorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things thatgo wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page aboutthat: 2)In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type inthe Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are usingWindows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You caneasily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose UserAccounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn UserAccount Control on or off. 3)If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you canupdate your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others,this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows andchat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleanerreginout cleaner to easily fix it

Hy i hv problm on yahoo messanger i cant see sent/recived messages in yahoo chat window i hv window 7


Before we can determine what happen to your sent/received messaged, We have to check your archive preferences. If you haven't set this up before chances are your old send/receive messages are deleted once you logged off from yahoo messenger.

First Step, go to Messenger Menu -> Preferences->Archive. Make sure the option Save all messages is ticked. If not, this means you old messages are gone and please tick it on.

Second Step, if your Archive Preferences option is save all messages then Select the contact you wish to view the old messages.

Third Step, Press F3 or Click the recent messages. Once you click F3, you will see on top of message window option to view the full archive. Click it and window will pop open. Select the date of the archive you wish to view.

In yahoo the chat window text is invisible to me why please solve the problem

  • Download Buddy Spy software through Yahoo!, which will allow you to view users when they are invisible.

  • Open Yahoo! Instant Messenger.

  • Click on your main buddy list.

  • View the user names. When the buddy is offline the name will be gray. When the buddy is invisible, it will read invisible next to their name.

  • Send a message to that user in the message window

    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.

    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.
