Question about Yahoo Messenger

Unable to run messenger

I kept getting yahoo messenger error 81003004 today and after many restarts and password changes, I opted to uninstall it. Now that I have done that I've downloaded the program again but for some reason windows won't run it. It keeps telling me to disable any firewalls even though I already have. What do I do now?

Its a pity you chose to re-install - a simple toggle of the connections from 'Direct' to 'Proxy' was probably all you needed.
As for your current installation problem:-
You do not need to adjust your firewall for uploading Messenger
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.

Time to re-install !!
Save your profile folder if you wish to retain your Message Archives
Download Revo - double-click on Yahoo Messenger and opt for 'Advanced' uninstall.

After the uninstall, Revo will scan the C drive and Registry for all 'left behind' fragments and files. Select all and delete everything it finds.
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are available for cleaning
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes before repairing

Chat connection problem 81003004. I'm pretty sure I logged off from my yahoo mail and I'm still getting this error message. It seems like it won't even try to connect now.


If you have vista, yahoo messenger 9.0. or even adobe flashplayer 10 (is needed to watch content on web browsers like Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox. Thier is a known conflicting report of them between each other. To fix your problem your gonna have to uninstall yahoo messenger 9.0 and flashmedia player 10.0 and try to find an older version of it.

When I try to login to yahoo messenger I get error 81003004


hi,
Follow these methods:-
First method:
1. go to messenger menu
2. select connection preference/ preference
3. the tab will automatic select connection preference, if it doesn’t, select it manual.
4. change your internet conection type, for my problem i choose broadband(DSL/Cable).

Second Method
For me, it was because I had set a localhost (127.0.0.1) proxy in Internet Explorer for anti-filtering purposes, thru which Y! Messenger was trying to connect. So I had to remove it to get it done.
just go to:
Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (tab) > Lan Settings (button)
then uncheck the Proxy server checkbox.


Thanks!

Go open Internet Explorer and go in the File menu and uncheck at the bottom the Work Offline option. Then go to a site using IE. Close IE. Open Yahoo Messenger and log in.
