How to fix text cannot see on yahoo messenger?

because of the virus we usually encountered this problem in yahoo messenger.. if we reinstall Ym ,the problem is still there..formatting PC is stressful and all of our files must be is the solution for that..<br /><br />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 \ Current Version \ Internet Settings \ Zones<br /><br />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..<br /><br />

I cannot share pictures on yahoo messenger and niether do i see the cotact's display pic . what do i do ??

i hate to tell you this. but the only way to correct that problem is to put in a new hard drive and re-install a higher version of yahoo messenger. the best messenger to use is any of the latest 8 versions - but any of the 9 versions will definitely work. other wise buy a new computer. i tried everything and been using YM for over 5 years. got the picture problem and tried every combination you can think of. then got a windows xp - it fixed the problem and then i got a new windows 7. sorry to say that the only way to fix it - you have to change your id name on a new YM on a new computer. make sure you do a norton or other anti-virus to pick a new version of the YM that you are using now. it's a pain because you have to reinvite all of your buddies - but that's the only way to fix it

Yahoo! Messenger will not respond. Says check Network Connections. This is fine. Still will not access.

Check in your Firewall Settings, whether you have given access to Yahoo Messenger or not. Check if Yahoo Messenger been blocked by your system's Firewall.

Yahoo only uses jpeg pics. Make sure its not bitmap or other formats.
Make sure its not gif, ico,tiff etc. And there is a size limit.
You may have to make the pic smaller.

I can't download yahoo messenger on my pc.

after downloading this file, you make sure you are connected to the internet, bcoz the install is an online install..

So even after opening the downloaded file, there should be internet connection for the file to install the yahoo messenger on the system.
