Hi!

I have problem like that before and here is what I did...and it works, until now i can easily access my yahoo messenger..

I am using a mozilla browser.. because it surfs fast....the yahoo messenger can't be accessed.. with the right username and password and the net connection is stable..but no luck to get log in..I did uninstalled and reinstalled yahoo messenger for several times but still it won't work..

Then I search internet and found out that yahoo products rely its connection on microsoft Internet Explorer.....meaning yahoo messenger is best supported by Internet Explorer....So what I did is download the latest Internet Explorer 8 and download also the yahoo mesenger 10.
It did not matter whether you will be using IE8 as your default web browser or not. Just install IE8 on your computer (mine..am still using mozilla as my default web browser)......after installing IE8, install Yahoo Messenger10....

After successful installation.. sign in at yahoo messenger and it will work...

If you want to know the link for IE8 and YM10 here it is..click this file and save it..
1. Internet Explorer version 8 free download
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 free download

I hope this help you..
thanks...much appreciated if you rate this solution..thanks.

Yahoo messenger erroe 81003002


Hello,

This error code indicates a sign in problem with Yahoo messenger. Try some of the following tips to resolve the issue.

-Make sure you are entering in the correct log in credentials. When the error pops up, there is a "Sign in Problem" button you can click on for further assistance.
-Make sure your computer is not infected by a virus. This has been known to cause this error.
-On Windows, Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and bring up task manager. In task manager, go to the processes tab, and in the process list look for something like yahoomessenger.exe. Highlight and click end process. Now run yahoo messenger and try to log in.

If the above does not work, uninstall yahoo messenger and reinstall.

Regards,
G33k

I keep getting popups that cover my comcast.net homepage and I can't get into my emails or yahoo messenger. Please help me. This is so frustrating. Mary


To sign in to Web Messenger, you'll need to disable the Pop-Up Blocker. Follow the steps for your browser:

For Firefox:

  1. When a pop-up is blocked:
    - You'll see a bar at the top of the browser window that says "Firefox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window."
    - On the right side of that bar, you'll see an Options or Preferences button.
  2. Click Options or Preferences ' select Allow popups for webmessenger.yahoo.com.
  3. Click Sign-in again.
    - You may need to reload the sign-in page.

For Internet Explorer:

  1. When a pop-up is blocked:
    - You'll see a yellow bar at the top of the browser window.
    - You'll see a message that says "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here...".
  2. Click on that yellow bar at the top of the browser window ' select Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site ' click Yes on the confirmation dialog.
  3. Click Sign-in again.

For Safari:

  1. You'll see a warning above the Sign-in button.
    - You won't see any other type of warning.
  2. Select the Safari menu at the top-left of your screen ' un-check Block Pop-up Windows.
  3. Click on Sign-in again

When I send a email from my yahoo mail it shutsdown my yahoo mess


Welcome to FixYa
  • Check your Messenger is Sign in at the Time of Sign in to Yahoo mail
  • Check in MOBILE phone/any other Device as you Signed in
  • Check in any other Browser as you Signed in
  • Check any other yahoo account is Signed in your Computer
  • Restart your PC
  • Sign out from Mobile/any other Device
Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger with Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Web messenger, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message you refer to.

OR someone has hacked into your account- Report to Yahoo and Try to Recover it-Send report Politely and concisely.Do not try to Send More report for Same cause..

I've downloaded the newest version of yahoo messenger, but am repeatedly recieving error reports, and have sent the 'report to windows' support several times. I am still unable to open, use or sign in to...


whats your operating system... if its vista then you might have to run it in compatibility mode... and/or as administrator... you can do this by uninstalling yahoo messenger and then before install right click on the file and select properties...

next turn off your firewall... just to see if thats an issue...

and go for it...

if this happening in windows 7 then do the same and if it keeps happening then you will have to wait for an update...

but my advice to you is this... if unable to run latest version of yahoo messenger... your best bet for the interim might be yahoo webmessenger...

Error in installing yahoo!7 messenger 9.0


make sure you have the latest update on software by using windows update

Make sure messenger is off, then go to regedit then open up HKEY CURRENT USER then open up SOFTWARE then open up MICROSOFT then open up WINDOWS then open up CURRENT VERSION then click on Internet Settings but dont open it just click on it then go half way down the list to find PROXY ENABLE,PROXY SERVER,PROXY OVERRIDE then click on PROXY ENABLE click modify binary and change from 0x00000000 (1) to 0x00000000 (0) then delete PROXY SERVER and PROXY OVERRIDE and there you go sign into messenger this has worked perfect for me hope it does for you.

or

It's either one of the two:

- Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.

- Your connection preferences are wrong:
Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option
