Hello,

First, you need to have a very active internet service before you can access yahoo messenger.

Then check if it is the latest yahoo messenger service she is using, because trying to use the older version might result in you having the signing in fail try again message.

So check the version and internet service you use before you can start running the yahoo messenger service.

Take care

I was having problems with my yahoo messenger so i uninstalled it and installed messenger 10. i can receive IMs but cant open any other programs in messenger. ex: fishville, match.com, etc. can you tell me...


1. Reboot your computer.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab.
3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation.
4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list.
5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system.
6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window.
7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before.
8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed,run registry cleaner reginout also reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

I'm using Y! Messenger 11. People can't read my IMs though I can read theirs. They can even see me typing, but the IMs themselves are not received.


Dear Sir,
It seems to be you are using most recent version yahoo messenger and others are using older versions.Try by reinstalling your yahoo messenger client. I think it helps let me know.
