·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.

TO INSTALL:

CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

COPY MESSAGE ARCHIVE

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

ENABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S

I had my xp stem crashj and was restored. But cannot find the messenger i downloaded. It said problems with the down load. I clicked start again and I have done this several times. i need yahoo messenger...


Hi there, might as well re-install Yahoo messenger, windows system recovery is not that perfect and the crash might have corrupted the files.. This is the best advice i can give.

Below is a link to the offline installer:

Dll errors on yahoo messenger when i sign in there be a warning said dll error occured


Check if you find a copy of rundll32.exe in the folder C:\windows\system32\dllcache or in C:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386. If this is the case, go ahead and copy rundll32.exe to the system folder C:\windows\system32
If you don't find a copy on your system, you can try to find the file on your windows installation disks. Lastly, you could simply re-install windows. However, this would be very time-consuming and you might lose all your data. So this would be the last resort.
There are various tools available on the Internet that scan, analyze, and fix your computer. Besides fixing your rundll32.exe, these tools will remove any registry errors, remove invalid shortcuts and duplicate files, repair DLL files, and remove startup and runtime errors.
recomended tool is reginout it is safe and gud software

Hi i have a questions and i hope u can help me when i am installing yahoo messanger it dose not installs and its a box comes out and its says side-by-side configuration what dose that mean and i really...


You didn't write that which operating system you using....but this error comes maximum in vista...it is related with Windows Resource Protection (WRP)...which use to keep your system file protected and secure....may be any of the file in SxS folder is corrupted or incorrect version.... You can try running sfc.exe(system file checker tool) to fix this....If you using vista, run your pc as an administrator and run cmd as an administrator as well. Type sfc /scannow and type Enter....while it running don't do other work on pc....it may take some time...be patient .....this command will scan all the protected system files, find out the incorrect version or corrupted version and replace with correct/suitable version....once you finish restart your pc and try install Yahoo messenger.

If you are a XP user, run your pc in Safe mode.and put the same command in cmd...and after finishing install yahoo messenger...
I think this suggestion will help you to fix your issue...
