it has errors
Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version
is not, But it's not working well either. Stick to 8.1 until they work
out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9
or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not
showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not
allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do
not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is
so buggy Yahoo
is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/...
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open
Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9
completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems
with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.
Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player

just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash
player # 188.8.131.52 . You have to remove the present flash
player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older
Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting
disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You

panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory,
change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok
