Right click on the "Task Bar" select "Task Manager", on the "Windows Task Manager" click on the "Processes" tab, from the list below, locate "YahooMessenger" Right click and select "End Process" click "Ok." and close the Task Manager. Your yahoo messenger is forcefully closed, now you can do what ever you want. You can reopen it to run and sign in again. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

    What if I can't right click it to get it to do that?

    Then you'll need to press Ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously, but this depends on the operating system type you are using, if it's windows XP with classic theme, another dialog box will pop up, from there, you have to click or select "Task Manager" and do the same process, or if your them is set to "Windows XP" just press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, the "Windows Task Manager" will pop up. For windows vista and win 7, do the same thing but you will be taken to another window where you'd be able to select "Task Manager" from there.


    Good luck.

I woul like to run yahoo mesenger at start up wiht out having to ok it evry time i restat my pc. in vista i had no problem but, wiht win 7 i canot figure it out


When you install Yahoo! Messenger on your computer, the program is adds itself to your computer's startup list. Each time you boot your computer, Yahoo! Messenger, and all other programs included in the list, starts automatically. Having too many programs on the list might reduce your computer's performance. To prevent Yahoo! Messenger from loading and popping up on your screen each time you boot your computer, you must remove it from the startup list. Yahoo! Messenger allows you to disable automatic startup through the program's preferences menu.
1.Open Yahoo! Messenger and log in your account.
2.Click the "Messenger" button at the top of the Yahoo! Messenger.
3.Click "Preferences" and the "Yahoo! Messenger Preferences" dialog box appears on your screen.
4.Click "General" and remove the checkmark from the box labeled "Automatically Start Yahoo! Messenger."
5.Click "Apply" and click "OK" to close the dialog box.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Messages that i've typed and send does not appear on the dialogue box. i cant see messages sent to me in the dialogue box. it only appears briefly on the pop up window at the bottom right corner of the...


The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout cleaner to easily fix it

Each time i got yahoo mail, my yahoo messenger pops up. i don't need it


  1. Open Yahoo! Messenger
  2. Click Messenger --> Preferences or CTRL+Shift+P
  3. Under category click Alerts and Sounds
  4. In the "Alert me when" box click "I receive email in Yahoo! Mail"
  5. Uncheck the boxes next to "Displaying a dialog box", "Showing an icon in the system tray" and "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen". If you prefer not hear the pow alert as well uncheck "Playing a sound..."
  6. Click OK and you're done.
So as not to leave you in the dark, let's also define these three options:
"Displaying a dialog box" is the Windows dialog box that pops up notifying you of new mail. "Showing an icon in the system tray" is the envelope that appears when new mail arrives. "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen" is the box that comes up giving you the subject of the message or how many emails.
Additionally, you can customize all your alerts in a very similar manner: Select the alert you want to change then check or uncheck the boxes as desired. You can even change what sounds you hear.
Hope that helps take some of the aggregation out of your computing experience!\

Start-> Run-> CMD->Msconfig-> Start up tab-> Uncheck Yahoo Messenger-> Apply-> Close-> Restart the computer.

I hav web cam my freind doesnt trying to establissh video call on im can this be done or does he hav to hav a cam. to? i hav yahoo 10 beta he has 9.0 ( this is all on yahoo mess.)please help me if possible...


He should be able to see you - he does not need a cam to do this.
Make sure your settings are settings are correct.

Download the manufacturer's software ( by using the CD or from their website )
Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, unless the software has a feature for this.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
Your contact needs to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (less the reference to webcam connected) or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo
