    My problem is I think similar to all of you but you see, I can't run Yahoo Messenger at all. It will load for a bit, then it stops without even showing me any menu. I checked the task manager and in the process tab, I can see that Yahoo Messenger is running. By the way, my Yahoo Messenger is 9.0. So, any solution for this? It already been a month and I'm having difficulties in solving this.

The messenger may not be installed correctly on your computer, the installer may be corrupted. Try to check if you can uninstall the software and download the latest installer from the Internet and that is what you install in the pc

Everytime i try to access yahoo messenger, an error message "Cannot load resource DLL" appears. How can I get into YM without seeing this message again?

Go you're Control Panel (from start menu). When the dialogue box opens, select:
"uninstall a program" under "Programs" Bottom left of screen (Control Panel Home).
Find Yahoo Messenger in the list (after it's finished loading).
Uninstall the program, then go to the following website and download Yahoo messenger again.
You're friends list will automatically be there once you log in to messenger. If (upon uninstalling messnger you are asked, "do you want to remove all files associated with this program?" select yes,or it will not install correctly the second time.)
Let me know if you need further assistance,
