I cannot install yahoo messenger at my laptop computer

i had this problem also..somewhere you might have a running program that interferes. Restart your computer and go into safe mode with networking. Download it this way and it should work just fine. Thats what i did and it worked perfectly.

I type a message and then I press send and goes blank

From your question, it is unclear what is going blank, so I will try to help with a "catch all" solution. Since yahoo messenger is a small program we will try to uninstall and reinstall it.
However, before you do anything, try to restart your computer - sometime the simplest solutions are the best. If that doesn't work try the following solution:
  1. Click Start
  2. Go to Control Panel
  3. Uninstall a program
  4. Find and uninstall Yahoo Messenger (a few simple steps will help you)
  5. After it has been uninstalled go to and click download now.
  6. Once the file has been downloaded, open it - if prompted click run and/or allow.
  7. Follow the installation screens (again, it should help you)
  8. If prompted, allow it to run or have access to the internet (Yahoo Messenger is safe)
  9. Open messenger, log in, and your problem should be fixed.
Best Wishes!

Can't view my IMs in yahoo messenger


This is what you should do; Restore your computer to a point before you installed the Defender Pro. Restore the computer to a point where the computer worked well (probably a date when your messenger was working well).

Once you complete the restore process, you can now reinstall a new yahoo messenger an this would work for you.

Cant delete yahoo messange from my computer

c:\program files\yahoo messenger, --- look for the folder yahoo messenger.

delete the folder.

right click start button. - click explore. goto programs. if yahoo messenger is listed delete it.

Now yahoo messenger SHOULD not load up on startup and be an phantom on your hard disk.

Please Note: If all fails, boot in SAFE MODE. then do this process. As well, your computer could be having yahoo loaded as an process making the file in use, thus being locked.

google on how to get into safe mode if you dont know how. I usually shutdown the computer a couple of times improperly or press an certain keystroke.

Hope this helps...

Yahoo messenger starts 2 load then says it quits working?

few answer can be the solve for this issue.

first it could be the security program blocking it from running.
second it could be the messenger files are corrupt.

so you can try two steps.
go to safe mode with networking (by hitting F8 key on reboot), and then try to use yahoo messenger and see if it is going to work. if yes then check the security program settings.
if no the easily go to yahoo website and install the yahoo one more time in your computer (dont bother uninstalling the old messenger the new installation will just overwrite it anyways).

Boot the computer in safe mode and create another account with administrator privileges. Then restart normally and either use the new account, or re-set the original administrator account password.
