    What anti virus package are your running on your pc? Is it a package that includes Internet Security or simply virus and spyware protection? Is windows Firewall running on your pc? The problem description points a firewall that is blocking the connection to the Yahoo Messenger servers. The Windows firewall in Vista does this by default. An option ( but not recommended for daily use ) is to turn off the firewall and see if you can connect to Yahoo Messenger. Update this message with the results and the answers to the questions above so we can help you with a permanent solution.

Ttry adjusting the Yahoo! Messenger Connection Preferences. Here's how:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Select "Firewall with no proxies."
  3. Click "Apply." You should see a message asking you to sign in again.
  4. Click "OK."
  5. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click "Sign In."
If you are still unable to sign in, see if you can sign in using one of the following links:
  1. Using Internet Explorer on your computer, can you successfully sign in to any or all of the following websites?
    http://login.yahoo.com
    http://mail.yahoo.com

I cant sign in to messenger for almost 5days now,it always says that there is a problem signing in to yahoo messenger and try a little bit later,but when i try again it says still the same


Yahoo still sucks, but it sounds like perhaps you need to set the appropriate browser or firewall settings. If you didn't cause anything to be changed since it worked last, perhaps that's not so, but reporting exact error messages and site behavior might help.

Just install another browser like Opera and try signing on with that, or use an eMail client and use a proxy service that fetches your Yahoo mail for you so you don't have to suffer their online experience.

whats your operating system... if its vista then you might have to run it in compatibility mode... and/or as administrator... you can do this by uninstalling yahoo messenger and then before install right click on the file and select properties...

next turn off your firewall... just to see if thats an issue...

Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.

Yahoo Messenger Problems Today


Are you using Vista OS? I believe that YM 9 for Vista is still under beta testing. There are bugs that needs to be fixed for this YM to work efficiently. Until all these minor problems are addressed by Yahoo, you will have to bear with this problem. I suggest you use the older version, that works better than the new one.

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.
