    You may also disable the firewall settings of your anti virus, even the router you are using has its own firewall settings.

    If you are not sure how to do this, just tell me the antivirus and the router that you are using.

I log in then a few seconds later it says its stopped working and needs to close, ive tried reinstalling and closing everything else, and still the same thing.


Go to your C: drive and delete all folders that could have any files associated with yahoo.

Try installing again.

If this fails too... do the same stuff but install an older version.

Also, check your firewall settings or Anti-virus filters.

I cant use yahoo 10 in my pc they give me a error all the time i cant sign in


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/08/18/help-with-sign-on-issues-in-yahoo-messenger-9-0/

My own advice is:-

1) Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser
Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Use the settings as downloaded - Click on the 'Run Cleaner' tab until '0 bytes removed'

2) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

3) Have more than one browser available for trouble shooting. Keep browsers up to date to incorporate all the patches - I run Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Keep one browser clear of add-ons and plug-ins.
Always have the browser you are using designated as default - even if you only have one

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date if you have it

5) Sign in here to reset cookies
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '@Yahoo.com' from your username to sign in

7) Check the date and time are correct on your computer

8) If you have your settings to sign in automatically and recently changed your password check this out
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/messenger/mstacantsignin.html

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.Disable your firewall long enough to make a trial sign-in

10) Messenger 10 now carries a troubleshooting log - if you have a degree in computer science the results may be of some use

11) AVG free users may be interested in this forum
http://forums.avg.com/ca-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=40313

12) Time to consider a re-install.
Save your Profile folder to hard disk, if you wish to retain your message archives.
Download 'Revo free' and uninstall in the 'Advanced'mode. This will scan your C drive and Registry for anything left behind after it runs the yahoo uninstall software. Delete everything it finds.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
Run ccleaner
Restart your pc
Download Yahoo Messenger from here.

File download problems


Hi there,

This could be a possible that you have set the firewall to block some download and pop-ups on a certain port.

better to re-configure again your firewall settings again to do so..

Anyway if you want a YM exe and not to download it, I have here which you don't have to download the installation, and all you need is to install it and use it.

Let me know here again.

Yahoo messenger installation file unable please cheack the firewall setting


seems like your Firewall setting is blocking YM from downloading the installation file from Yahoo!. Are you using a third party firewall program, or just Windows Firewall? in both cases, you may have to turn off the firewall prior to installing ym. Dont forget to turn it back on after installation

I cant installe yahoo messenger because of a fire wall.


Try use Yahoo Messenger 9, the latest version. Before download yahoo messenger, make sure firewall allows your connection to download it. It shows that your PC protected from any harmful software because of your firewall. One more thing download your yahoo messenger only for trustful sources websites, it much better. i think you should check your firewall settings. Check also your Windows Firewall. I think there are some problems in your firewall settings. It may be blocked your yahoo messenger from downloading it into your PC. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to install yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. I think this tips can be help you a little bit.

Good Luck!

Yahoo messanger installation


Problem:
"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation"

Solution:

Hi,

I tried to solve this. I went through alot of forums. I uninstalled Yahoo messenger and tried installing new one. I downloaded and pressed "Run as an administrator" when i got this response

"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation Please check firewall settings and retry installation."

I did the following:
Turned of Windows Firewall( Search )
Uninstalled Yahoo messenger
Downloaded New One
Used CCLEANER to clean the computer. Download CCLEANER from www.filehippo.com

Then I checked INTERNET EXPLORER:

Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings -> Click on Automatically Detect Settings (Unclick everything else except this option) ->Apply -Ok

Check if www.yahoo.com opens in Internet Explorer.

Now Install Yahoo Messenger.
It should work.

Thanks
