Question about Yahoo Messenger

I kept having the same problems with YM. Every time i tried to sign in, it won't let me sign in. it's about yahoo! messenger troubleshooter and It said " We can't let you sign in". I am sure it was not because of the internet connection. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button. use registry cleaner reg in out to solve registry error for messenger

I coudnt sign in the yahoo messenger,while i can sign in yahoomail.what could be the possiblem problem?could you suggest solutions


Few sugesstions :

1) Uninstall your current YM, restart your pc/laptop, then try installing a new one. Link : a)http://www.mydigitallife.info/yahoo-messenger-10-final-full-version-offline-standalone-setup-installer-download/ b) http://www.geckoandfly.com/6309/download-yahoo-messenger-10-full-offline-installer-15-8mb/

2) If it does not work, check whether if your windows is installing new updates, sometimes YM does crash when window is updating. If you are using Win7, then just go to: --> Control panel/ System & security/ Windows Update/ Change setting
In the setting panel, you will see " Important Updates " box selection. Change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them". Restart your pc/laptop, then try log in to your YM.

3) *This step won't be necessary but won't do any harm too, go to Control Panel --> System & Security --> System --> Advance System Settings. In the " Advance " tab, click "setting" at the " performance " column. Select " Data Execution Prevention ", select " Turn on DEP for all programs & services except those i select", insert your YahooMessenger.exe (C:/Program Files/Yahoo!/Messenger/YahooMessenger) into the add list. Restart PC/laptop & try to log in to YM.
** If it still crash, then your internet connection might be the problem, & also, Yahoo! can be down sometimes too.

Im using globe broadband connection yet im unable to use ym


If you have Messenger 10 you will have the sign in troubleshooting facility to narrow down the possibilities.
If you have AVG free edition, there is a known conflict and you will have to contact AVG support for assistance ( Try signing in with AVG disabled to check this out )

Yahoo Messenger Problems Today


Are you using Vista OS? I believe that YM 9 for Vista is still under beta testing. There are bugs that needs to be fixed for this YM to work efficiently. Until all these minor problems are addressed by Yahoo, you will have to bear with this problem. I suggest you use the older version, that works better than the new one.

I cann't sign in yahoo messenger


Please check that your firewall is blocking the messenger. If you donot have fire wall installed then its a virus or Spy ware is blocking else the messenger is corrupted. First check firewall settings.
