Your Yahoo! Messenger connection information may be incorrect. Follow these steps to configure your connection:

  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
  3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
  4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
  3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
  4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct.

It would be better if you get the Offline Standalone installer (Yahoo Messenger Beta 11) from a more fast and steady internet connection, so you can install it even with limited or no internet connection. The problem properly be fixed by Re-Installing yahoo messenger.

I recently downloaded avg anti virus and made myself a new profil on my computer after having been attacked by malware and trojan viruses. now i'm unable to get my yahoo messenger working. i cant even...


Sometimes proxy setting or a firewall or even the anti-virus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or anti-virus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10. Even after installation, you might have to grant access to Yahoo from anti-virus, otherwise it may not connect. Usually when it's trying to connect a pop-up from AVG will ask if you want to let Yahoo Messenger to access Internet and you have to allow this.

Yahoo messenger automatically shut down


Please upgrade first the version of your Windows Internet Explorer. The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on Internet Explorer.

If you are using different web browser like Mozilla Firefox, It doesn't matter. Just install Internet Explorer 8 compatible with your operating system and do not default it as your browser.

Do this and you will find it easy to access your yahoo Messenger in just a second.

Here is the link for downloading Internet Explorer version 8. Select the operating system you are currently use.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

After installing the IE8 and Yahoo Messenger 10, restart your computer.

Please comeback after establishing your Yahoo Messenger connection and give me some rating.

Thank You for using Fixya.
