Problem with links and shortcuts can indicate a browser issue.

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.

I cant see any text in my chat board


Some virus can cause this bug in Yahoo Messenger. Check your Internet Options, go to Security Tab, and see if there is a new item. Normal items there are Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted sites, and Restricted sites. If you see a new item, chances are you were hit by a virus.

To resolve this, open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Internet Settings Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it. (Backup your registry first). If you were able to delete that extra item, this might fix the bug, and you will be able to see the chat messages again in yahoo messenger.

I cannot open my yahoo mail anymore


Yahoo!Mail Account is only valid for 3months (90 days). If your account is inactive for more than 90 days, your email account will automatically deleted from the Yahoo list. But if your active mail user, but you cant open your account, try this following steps: -Open your Yahoo!Messenger (if available) -Sign in, use your email username and password -When you sign in, click the mail icon in the Yahoo!Messenger smoothly.png
it will redirect you to your Yahoo!Mail account.. You can now use your Yahoo!Mail again..
Goodluck!!

regsvr32 jscript.dll
