The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. Here is link from Microsoft to update that:

Or you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link. download reginout registry cleaner also to fix issues

What can I do to retreive my facebook messages?


Hello!!!
Did you actually delete the message, or just archive it? If you were viewing the message and just hit the X, the message would have been archived and is retrievable. But, if you selected the message and went to "actions-->delete conversation" it's gone forever.

If you did just archive the message you can go to your inbox and click "other-->archived" and it'll show your archived messages. If you fully deleted the message though, Facebook doesn't offer any recovery support to get it back.

All the best.

How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

I can't read offline and any messages on screen, and can't send messages too.


Dear Friend,

Please download latest version of Yahoo Messenger....... and use following instructions -

Click the Messenger menu in Messenger.
  1. Select Preferences.
  2. Click the Archive category.
  3. Check the Enable Archiving option. Enable each item that you want to archive. If you'd like to automatically delete archives after a certain number of days, place a check in the box next to Automatically Delete Files Older Than and enter a number.
  4. Click OK at the bottom of the window.
Please Note: Uncheck the Enable Archiving option if you'd like to disable Archiving.
To view your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the archive folder you want to review.
To delete your archive:
  1. Click the Contacts menu in Messenger.
  2. Select Message Archive.
  3. A new window called Message Archive for {your ID} should appear.
  4. Select the Messages folder and then click the X button if you want to delete your complete Message Archive or select the desired folder and then click X to selectively delete.
A few things to remember:
  • Under the Message menu, you can reply, save, and print messages, as well as view your archiving preferences.
  • Under the Edit menu, you can copy messages to your clipboard or delete messages.
  • Under the View menu, you can enable timestamps.
Please Note: Archives (.dat files located on your system) are encrypted and can only be viewed by the Yahoo! ID that created them. These archives are stored locally on your system, so the conversations held on that specific computer are only accessible from that computer. Once archives are deleted, they're gone, and cannot be retrieved.

I am not able to view my sent messages in Yahoo Messenger and also not able to view others messeges sent to me. pls slove this problem


To do this, you have to set it to save your messages under Preferences. First, go to the main Yahoo window, the one where you see all of your contacts and click on Messenger. Look through the list until you see Preferences. Click on Preferences and look under the category list for Archive. You have three options there, to save all messages that you send and receive, to save them but to delete them upon exiting the program, or to not save them. The first option is the one to choose if you are wanting to save ALL of the messages you have sent and received from your contacts. Remember to hit the "OK" button when you've finished making your changes.
If you are just wanting to see the most recent messages you've had with someone, open up a chat window, and without typing anything to them, click the F3 button that is at the top of your keyboard. It won't show your entire conversation history, but it will show a fair amount of your most recent conversation. If you're wanting to know what date and time the conversation took place, click the F2 key, also at the top of the keyboard. You can use that key at any time during a conversation to turn timestamps on or off.
There is no way to retrieve past conversations, unfortunately, but if you choose to save messages to archive, you'll be able to view conversations at any time you wish.
I hope this helps you.

Can i show my old messege in my yahoomessenger


Yes. In every contact opened, there is a link at the beginning of the chat that says Show recent Messages or you can press F3. Then it will show you if you want to view FULL archive. click that and it will open you the daily conversation with that contact and also the messages of other contacts in the left panel.

This is of course assuming that message history is saved.

To setup your account to save all conversations, Click Messenger from the menu and click Preferences. Click Archive from the left menu and choose to save all conversations.
