I've been logging into my YM regularly, but of late it's not letting me log into my user name and password. After running diagnostics i get the message saying 'log not being detected by server' or something to that effect.

Reboot your computer. 2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab. 3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation. 4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list. 5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system. 6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window. 7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before. 8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed,run registry cleaner reg in out also reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

Try some common passwords that you regularly use, but unless you can guess correctly, you'll have to reset your password.

On yahoo messenger it keeps saying i have the wrong log in credentials, and I'm sure that the ones i typed in are right. I've tried changing my password but it still isn't working..


Hi there!
You can try logging in to Yahoo's website first and see if you can log-in. If you can log-in, then it is a possible problem with Yahoo Messenger. Try reinstalling YM. If you can't log-in, then it is a problem either with your email or password.
Best Regards!

I cannot sign in my ym.pls help me! y?


First, you have to make sure that you're using the correct user name and password. The user name and password is your Yahoo Mail user name and password.

Example:

Your complete email address is analiza_ampo@yahoo.com
Your user name should be analiza_ampo only (without @yahoo.com).

If you can log in to your Yahoo! Mail, but not in Yahoo Messenger, you need to have somebody to try to login to YM using different user name and password. If same problem occur, uninstall and re-install the YM.

Thank you and good luck!

Cannot log in to yahoo messenger


First, make sure that the YM is working correctly.

Second, be sure that you are using the correct user name and password. Your Yahoo Mail user name and password is also your Messenger user name and password.

Example:

john.smith@yahoo.com (email address)
john.smith (should be the user name without @yahoo.com)
Then type your Yahoo password.

If same problem occur, try to uninstall and reinstall the Yahoo Messenger.

Thank you and good luck!

I can not get on yahoo messenger. why? i have downloaded messenger 10 , still nothing. could you please help me get it back? thank you


Are you having a problem of logging in to your YM (Yahoo Messenger)?

First, try to access your Yahoo Mail, to verify that your user name and password are still working.

Try to login using your user name only without the domain (@yahoo.com)

Example: Let's say your email address is john.smith@yahoo.com.

Go to www.mail.yahoo.com
Your user name should be "john.smith" only (without @yahoo.com).
Then type your password. If you can access your Yahoo Mail, then same procedure applies to Yahoo Messenger.

If same problem occur, try to access the YM in another computer, so that you can isolate the problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Laptop forgotten password


When you get to the log on screen, press the ctrl+alt+del combo twice. You should get another log on screen, change the user name to administrator, all lower case. leave the password blank and see if you can log on. Most people leave the administrator password blank...? If that gets you in, go to control panel, user accounts and change the password on your user account. Log off as administrator and log back in on your regular user name with the new password. Hope that works!

Windows log on


You can try logging in as administrator.  As the computer starts up press 'F8' to get into the boot options and select 'Safe Mode with Networking".  Click on the administrator login, the password is blank unless you set one during installation.  Once in windows you can modify the user accounts in control panel.
Note:  If you have never used "F8" to get to the boot menu before the timing is a bit tricky.  If you see the windows logo you are too late. Try pressing "F8" several times instead of just holding it down
