You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

If you have Vista you may be denied being able to delete folders - in this case you will have to disable the 'User Account Control'
Start > Control Panel (Home) > User Accounts and Family Safety > Add or remove user accounts > Continue > Go to the main User Account Page > Turn User Account Control On or Off > Continue > Uncheck control box > OK

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

Make sure you have Administrative priveledges. If you're the only log in you do.

also consider using the beta version of Yahoo email which has messenger built in

My Yahoo Messenger hangs then it would say (not responding...). What can i do to fix this? Help me please?


Few sugesstions :

1) Check whether if your windows is installing new updates, sometimes YM does crash when window is updating. If you are using Win7, then just go to:
--> Control panel/ System & security/ Windows Update/ Change setting. In the setting panel, you will see " Important Updates " box selection. Change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them". Restart your pc/laptop, then try log in to your YM.

2) *This step won't be necessary but won't do any harm too, go to:
Control Panel --> System & Security --> System --> Advance System Settings. In the " Advance " tab, click "setting" at the " performance " column. Select " Data Execution Prevention ", select " Turn on DEP for all programs & services except those i select", Insert your YahooMessenger.exe (C:/Program Files/Yahoo!/Messenger/YahooMessenger) into the add list. Restart PC/laptop & try to log in to YM.
3) If those won't work, uninstall your current YM, restart your pc/laptop, then try installing a new one.

** If it still crash, then your internet connection might be the problem, & also, Yahoo! can be down sometimes too.

I cannot oppen my yahoo icon


If you are referring to the YM shortcut on your desktop, please check if the icon still points to YahooMessenger.exe. Right click on the icon and click properties. If you had installed it on the default path it should have "C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe" on the Target field at the Shortcut tab.
In case you had installed it on a different path, you may search for "YahooMessenger.exe" on your PC, and change the Target field accordingly, depending on the path of search result.
Hope this helps.

P.S. I'm using Windows XP.
