Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Could not sign in yahoo messenger in some cases.

I'm using Yahoo Messenger 10 ! System: Win XP SP3 / Pentium 4 / 384 MB RAM. I am having both Administrator and Limited user accounts on my home computer. But normally working Internet on Limited user account.

On System start up I can start yahoo messenger and log in.

But in some cases, while I'm chatting, the internet connection disconnected automatically and then reestablished.

In the mean time Yahoo messenger automatically sign out, but could not sign in either automatically or manually once again. It tells this time the following message:

Yahoo Messenger Troubleshooter
-------------------------------------------------

We can't sign you into yahoo messenger.

There might be a problem with your internet connection,etc....


When I go for Troubleshooting, the following result comes:

Checking virtual IP servers...
[VIP Raw] FAILED
*** 'COMPONENT_TYPE_YCP' YCPError: 'YMSG.ColoSelectionTimeout' ***

Checking HTTP virtual IP servers...
[VIP Http] FAILED
*** 'COMPONENT_TYPE_YCP' YCPError: 'YMSG.ColoSelectionTimeout' ***


It gives me some instruction about changing Internet Options on IE8, such that clearing Cookies, etc.,, disabling the Ad on 's and I do the all things, but not working anything.

At this time the Internet Explorer could not be loaded, but the iexplorer.exe is still running in the Task Manager processes list. So I go to the Internet Options thru Control Panel and doing the changes but nothing works.

I'm afraid that some spy, malware, virus or rootkits may be inside the system. But my avast antivirus and comodo firewall both do not find anything wrong.

Hint: My ADSL Broadband internet connection finds the IP's automatically and I do not deal with them.

If you wanted to sign in with your Yahoo Messenger in just a second you will need to improve its connection.

The easiest way for you to establish a good connection is to upgrade your Windows Internet Explorer. In case you didn't know Yahoo Messenger rely its connection from Internet Explorer.

The best suggestion to improve the connection of your Yahoo Messenger is to upgrade the Internet Explorer of your computer. Compatible to the system software you are currently using. (Example if your operating system is windows vista, Install Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista)
After you upgrade your Internet Explorer, uninstall the yahoo messenger on your computer and then reinstall again. After doing this, restart your computer and try to log in. You will surely see the difference.

These are the link files that you will need to upgrade.
Click it to save.
1. Internet Explorer8 (winXP, winXP-64, winVista, winVista-64) - select your operating system and download IE8
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 - download and install this after you remove previous version of yahoo messenger on your computer

(Note: if you are using different web browser, It doesn't matter. Install Internet Explorer 8 and just don't default it as your web browser)

Yahoo messenger chat windows opening blank...cannot see any messages or whatever am sending. Even offline messages are showing blank. Not allowing me to enter chat rooms as the window is opening all...


new virus infection: it can be fixed through deleting extra key in registry settings. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Internet Settings\ then delete keys other than 0,1,2,3,4. that extra key may be alphabet "I" or something.. (0-4 is IE default internet zone security setting..)
