Why my pc cant display instant IM from yahoo messenger


Your problem is with Internet Explorer - even if you do not use it and have another browser set as default. IE plays an unseen but essential part in the operation of Yahoo Messenger
Keep your IE updated - the latest version is 8 for Vista and XL
You may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.
To enable scripting:
Launch IE
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE

Still not working ? Update software

use the links on this page to help update software.

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

Login error 81003004 in my account



Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy

Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/…


Download 8.1 here;
Yahoo 8.1: http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html..…

Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Uninstall messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts,and 9's latest update 9.0.124.0 Can have conflicts with Yahoo(very rarely, if you are using it with no problems keep it) and is causing some Yahoo Messenger services to not load.Use the link below for a download of Flash player #9.0.115.0 It should work as it's the latest before 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
