If you cant remove it from add remove programs, you can try to use window installer cleanup utility. you can download it from this website : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 . if it doesnt work you can use CCleaner and download it from this website : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ . to run windows installer clean up utility,after you have successfully installed it on your computer, it should show up on all programs after clicking start button. now you cna look for yahoo mesenger and click delete. if you want to use ccleaner here is a screenshot of the tools window, http://www.ccleaner.com/screenshots/tools-uninstaller
look for yahoo messenger and click delete entry. after using ccleaner, restart the computer and uninstall it as well using add remove programs. you can also uninstall yahoo messenger following this path: my computer/local disk c/program files/yahoo/ and then delete the folder that say messenger.

I cant see text when chatting on yahoo messenger, please help me to fix this problem


Go to start button, control panel, Programs-uninstall programs. Click Yahoo Messenger. Click uninstall. Then go to http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/ and re-instal the latest version following all instructions. If it still does not work after that, you may need to install some updates for flash players, but the Messenger instal will tell you that this is the case, and will direct you to where you can get those updates/programs.

L have problem with sing in yahoo messenger when l try to sing in l get 81003002 this number l dont know what l have to do ???


I researched a few of the error that some get in Yahoo Messenger. For that error do a complete uninstall of Yahoo Messenger. Then reboot and fresh download. Please read full instructions below.
--------------------------------------…
COMPLETE UNINSTALL OF YAHOO MESSENGER
Please note that doing a clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger will erase your message archives so read here about how to copy them http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…

First uninstall Yahoo! Messenger through add/remove programs.

If you want to do a total clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger then also navigate to Program Files on your hard drive and delete the Messenger folder inside of the Yahoo Folder. Follow this path (XP): My Computer>>C: drive>>Program Files>>Yahoo>>Messenger. Reboot your computer (important!).

If you have a trusted registry scanner use it now. If you do not have a trusted registry scanner that you are familiar with than skip this step because you can mess things up if you do not know what you are doing. I personally use CCleaner but then I have been using it for years and know how to use the Registry scanner portion safely. Using any of these types of programs is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Make sure you know how to create a system restore point and backup any of the Registry files it changes.

It is important that now you reboot your computer. Now download and install Yahoo messenger again using the following link: Full Installer for Yahoo Messenger 9.0.0.2162

Have you looked in your Downloads folder on your computer? The install files may be there ready to be installed. First thing I would do is go into your Control Panel (START >> Control Panel >> Add/Remove Program) and make sure that the old yahoo messenger is completely uninstalled.
Also, just for good measure, are you in a different country or your time zone/date settings set for a different country? That would make yahoo give you a foreign language program automatically.
Here is the direct link I just used to download Yahoo Messenger: http://messenger.yahoo.com/
Good luck!

Problem of yahoo messenger


Hi,

Do yourself a favor and get rid of messenger 9, Yahoo still does not have it working correctly!! Do the following >>

You need to uninstall messenger Completely so you can get rid of the corrupted file that is causing your problem and get a clean install.

When you uninstall not all of the yahoo messenger files are deleted from your Program Files, so if the problem you are having is caused by a corrupted file then the problem will still be there when you install it again.

So what you need to do is uninstall messenger then go to your Program files and delete the yahoo folder. This will get rid of all remaining files especially the corrupted ones.

To uninstall you need to click on the Start button(the one on your task bar) then go to Control Panel then to Add/Remove Programs, find yahoo messenger in the list and click on it then on uninstall.<< this is for XP

To uninstall in Vista click on start then Control Panel then on Uninstall a Program in the new window find yahoo messenger click it to uninstall it.

To find and delete the Yahoo folder click on the START button in your task bar then on My Computer then C: drive then Program Files then right click on the Yahoo folder and Delete it. It's a good idea to reboot your PC now to make sure it's all gone out of your system.


Go here instead of trying to get it from the Yahoo messenger site >> http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.h...

I do recommend you get the 8.1.0.421 version as it is the most stable a bug free version of messenger !!

When you download it just save it to your desktop and then run the installer from there.

If you have XP just double click on it to start the install.


To install messenger on Vista you need to download messenger to your desktop. Then Right click on the installer and then click on "Run as Administrator" to get it to install correctly.


No, doing this will not make you lose your contacts and Yes if you do do this with out saving your archived files folder you will lose older messages.

If you'd like to save your archives, follow the instructions below to save them:

1. Click the "Start" menu and select "Run." If you do not see the Run command, then select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run.
2. Type in "%ProgramFiles%\Yahoo!\Messenger\" and press Enter.
3. Right-click the "Profiles" folder and select "Copy."
4. Click the "Start" menu and select "Run" again.
5. Type in "%UserProfile%\Desktop\" and press Enter.
6. Click the "Edit" menu and select "Paste."

Once you've downloaded the new version of Yahoo! Messenger, you can paste the "Profiles" folder back to:

C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\


Hope my info solves your problem
Thanx for using fixya.
