Yahoo Messenger relies on Internet Explorer for its connectivity settings. It could be possible that some IE settings where changed.

Try checking on the proxy settings.

Here's how to go there:

Open Internet Explorer
Click on Tools
Click on Internet Options
Click on the Connections Tab
Click on LAN Settings
You will see 4 checkboxes, all boxes should not be checked
After correcting settings, just click on OK

Hope this helps! :D

I m having problem into login from my yahoo messenger

) Yahoo are concentrating their efforts to resolving sign-in issues with Messenger 10. You may have to upgrade to this version if you cannot resolve your problems and make use of the troubleshooting software - even if you want to retro install an older version later.
2) users who opt for a default browser other than IE may be neglecting to keep IE up to date unaware that IE plays a crucial part in the running of Yahoo Messenger. I use Firefox as my default but note the amount of cleaning in IE when I run ccleaner.
3) Start your trouble shooting with a clean browser
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.
4)Ensure your firewall is not creating problems by doing a trial sign in with it disabled
5) It will be worth making IE your default browser while you troubleshoot
6) Download the latest IE from Microsoft
7) Ensure 'work offline' is unchecked :- > Tools - uncheck Work Offline.
8) Update your support software for IE using the links on this page
After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions
9) If your log-in fails, interrogate the troubleshooting log for 'failed items'
Two Yahoo servers are used for initial log-ins
The log-in server checks your username and password are correct
If this has 'failed' check your IE can access a secure website by signing in here
No luck? check IE settings >Tools > Internet options > Connection tab > LAN > 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' > Advanced - Under 'Proxy address to use' check the info in 'Secure' and 'Port' are correct > OK for each window.
The connection server helps find the right location to synchronise with other servers- if this shows 'failed' change your YM settings to connect via a proxy.This can be done from the menu on the sign in page > Messenger > Preferences > Connection -adjust settings > Apply > OK

Please upgrade your Internet Explorer to IE version 8.0. If you are using different browser that's fine, just upgrade to IE 8 and don't default it as your web browser.

Yahoo products rely its connection through Internet Explorer.

After upgrading your Internet Explorer, Uninstall then reinstall your yahoo messenger.

After that you won't find it difficult to log in on your ym.

Let me know if your connection went smoothly. Comeback and give me some ratings too. Thanks

I try to connect to yahoo messenger and I get a message that says there might be a problem with your internet connection, i run the trouble shooter in this message and it says possible problem with http...

Right click on your internet connection logo (2 blue monitor screens) in the System Tray and select "Diagnose and Repair"
No Problem? proceed.
Internet Explorer is used to sign into Yahoo Messenger. If you have another browser set as default IE will still sit as a link between your browser and Yahoo Messenger. For this reason most troubleshooting is concentrated on Internet Explorer.

Try each of these in turn, and try to sign in after each of them - if successful (or not) please feed back information to help others.

1) I would recommend installing the latest version of IE and update any support software (Flashplayer, Java, Shockwaveplayer) for IE by using an update checker
2) Start with a clean browser
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.
3) On the sign in page click 'Messenger' > Connection Preference
Toggle between 'Connect direct to the internet' and 'Proxy setting' make sure the information is correct in the lower 2 boxes. I am currently in the Asia Pacific region and I have to toggle between these settings a few times a week to maintain my connection
4) Check these settings in IE (even if you have another browser set as default)
a) Tools > Internet options > Connections > Lan settings > check 'Automatically detect settings - uncheck other options.
b) Tools > work offline - make sure this is NOT checked and has a red X through it
5) Disable your firewall and do a trial sign in
6) Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings-uncheck Proxy server and check automatically detect setting
7) Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > dial-up and virtual private Network setting > select your default connection > setting > check automatically detect setting
8)If you are unable to sign into this secure page (https)
copy the yahoo https address above and paste it in here:-
IE > tools > internet options > LAN settings - check automatically detect settings > Advanced - paste in 'Secure' window > OK
9) Run ccleaner again

I can't access my YM but i can access my yahoomail why

Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

My own advice is
1) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

2) 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

3) Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date

5) Sign in here to reset cookies

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '' 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

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.

10) Set your status in Yahoo Mail to 'Offline'
