There is an error in registrykeys, registry key is conflicting, download reginout to clean up ur registry keys, or do these steps
Check out this article in Yahoo Messenger Blog about bug fixes for Yahoo Messenger 10 Beta. There is a new update to 10 Beta that fixes those bugs.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/…

Full Installer for Yahoo Messenger 10.0.0.525 Beta (US version)
http://download.yimg.com/ycs/msg/dl/msgr…

I recommend doing a complete uninstall not just using add/remove programs alone.

COMPLETE UNINSTALL OF YAHOO MESSENGER
1. PLEASE NOTE that doing a clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger will erase your message archives so read here about how to copy them http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…
Important: Do not put the archives back in until you are sure you can connect with the new download and installation and when you are sure Yahoo Messenger is working properly.

2. First uninstall Yahoo! Messenger through add/remove programs in the Control Panel. Vista users please read this for how to uninstall Yahoo Messenger, skip the part for now about reinstalling, I will go over that below.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…

3. If you want to do a total clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger then also navigate to Program Files on your hard drive and delete the Messenger folder inside of the Yahoo Folder. Follow this path (XP): My Computer>>C: drive>>Program Files>>Yahoo.

To find the Messenger folder in Vista, follow these instructions:
1.On your keyboard, press Windows Logo+R to open the "Run" command.
2.Copy and paste the following text into the Run command, then click OK:
%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!
Delete the Messenger Folder inside the Yahoo Folder.
4. Reboot your computer (important!).

5. This step is for Advanced Computer users only and is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. If you have a trusted registry scanner use it now. If you do not have a trusted registry scanner that you are familiar with than SKIP this step because you can screw your computer up if you do not know what you are doing. I personally use CCleaner but then I have been using it for years and know how to use the Registry scanner portion safely. Make sure you know how to create a system restore point and use the built in backup feature to backup any of the Registry files it changes. Reboot again if you choose to do this step.

6. Now download and install Yahoo messenger again using one of the following links:
A. Full Installer for Yahoo Messenger 9.0.0.2162
http://download.yimg.com/ycs/msg/dl/msgr…
Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 runs on Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, (maybe Windows 7 too).

B. Full Installer for Yahoo Messenger 10 Beta
http://download.yimg.com/ycs/msg/dl/msgr…
This version runs on XP, Vista, and most likely Windows 7.

I cant access to yahoo messenger everytime i signed in


hi there.

for this, you may want to uninstall and download another yahoo msgr for your machine since it might have been corrupted and cannot connect to their webserver.

it happened to me several times and re-installing the program worked it out for me.

also, other than yahoo msgr, you may want to try "skype" msgr for its much stable than yahoo msgr...

Click Apply and OK.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

My pad wont work wen i tap on it to select only on my user account,on the other account it works fine


if you can still move the curser with the pad then tap to click is probably disabled. go to control pannel and double click the mouse icon. you will find the option to enable tap to click either on the buttons, pointer options, or hardware tabs. it varys with the manufacturer so i cannot say for sure. on dell computers, it's on the dell touchpad options tab.

Labtec Webcam - works in Yahoo, not in Live Msgr


Normal 0 See section C. Windows Live Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
Go to this site http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger and download Windows Live Messenger.

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hung in a transfer loop after being removed from PC


When I (USB) plug in my RCA Opal M4002A mp3 player into my "Office PC" it works fine, but when I plug it into my "Studio PC" the "Opal" screen shows "USB connected" and so does the "PC" with the "Device Connected Sound" but then the "Mouse Pointer" changes to the "Hour Glass" you hear the "System Notification Sound" then the "Mouse Pointer" changes back to the default "Arrow Pointer" and this back and forth action loops endlessly until I unplug it. I've tried everything. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Quaal
*** ONLY THIS PART OF THE ABOVE MESSAGE IS MINE ***
ALSO I HAVE THE "RCA Opal M4002A" (2GB) mp3 player.
*** After much trial and error this FIXED my problem. ***
1 - First right mouse click on "My Computer".
2 - Left click on "Properties"- Left click on "Hardware"- Left click on "Device Manager".
3 - Now with one end of the USB cable plugged into your mp3 player, plug the other into your USB port. (Now when I did this a new "Portable Device" icon with an "MTP" Driver (sub icon) showed up in the "Devices List". (The "MTP" icon had an "!" on it, telling my it wasn't working properly. I then did this.
4 - Right click on "MTP" driver icon, then ...
5 - Left click on "Update Driver". (I was then given two choices. The top one was the faulty "Portable Device" driver which I had done everything I could to fix, but nothing worked. So I then did this ...
6 - Left click on the "Mass Storage" Driver (the second choice below it in the list), I then clicked "OK". The "Updating Driver" screen showed for a moment. The "Portable Device / MTP Driver(!)" icon vanished from the "Device Manager" devices list, But the looping STOPPED!!! My Opal was working beautifully and showing in my "Root Directory" as Drive j: and in "Device Manager" under "Disk Drives" as "Thomson Opal USB Device".
P.S. For some reason the file transfers are noticeably faster now. Good Luck, Quaal
