Probably it is the ActiveX settings of your computer.
First Uninstall Yahoo Messenger.
Run RegEdit then back up your registry. right-click on the computer icon and click export to back-up your registry, save it anywhere you want.

Then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ find the yahoo folder then delete it. and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ find the yahoo folder then delete it.

Run search>>>All files and folders Type YAHOO in "all or part of the file name:" lock in your local hardrive>>choose more advance option check the search for hidden files. Delete all files of yahoo.

uninstall your internet explorer. go to RegEdit >>> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ then delete the zone folder. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ then delete the zone folder.

Download Registry Cleaner to clean up your registry. Restart your computer.

Download and install internet explorer after download go to>>> internet option>>>Security>>> Reset all zone to default value or enable your activeX

Download and install Yahoo Messenger.
Run and Good Luck.

Good Day Dr_Mosaeed!

I know how hard it feels when you want to communicate with others using Yahoo! Messenger and you can not because the message you type will not appear on chat window. And even the message that your friend send to you will not appear.

Dr, this problem is usually caused by an Internet Explorer glitch that block the execution of the scripts in Yahoo Messenger.

You can fix the error by enabling the scripts in Internet Explorer.

Here is what you must do to repair the problem and to assure that it will not appear again:

First, download the latest Internet Explorer version 8 and install in your computer.
To download, go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home - choose the operating system you are using before hitting the Download button. Once downloaded, run the application to install Internet Explorer version 8. Once completely installed, run the Internet Explorer.

Secondly, enable the scripts in the Internet Explorer.
While Internet Explorer is running, press the Tools menu and navigate to select Internet Options.
When an Internet Options window appears, select on Security tab. Click on the Internet Globe icon and press Custom Level... button.
When Security Settings - Internet Zone window appears, scroll down and navigate to ActiveX controls and plug-ins and Scripting.
Make sure
the following is enable:
Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins
* Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting - enable
Under Scripting
* Active scripting
- enable
* Scripting of Java applets - enable
Once it is enable, press the OK button. Press Apply button and hit OK. Close the Internet Explorer.

Lastly, if your Yahoo Messenger is running, you must restart it. Please, you do not need to reboot your computer.
Then, try opening a chat window and type a few words before hitting Enter. See if your message finally appear.



Hope this fix will solve your problem. If not, just leave a message here and will try a thorough analysis with your chat message problem.

If this will fix your problem, please do not forget to rate my answer. A simple press on the YES button will show your appreciation.

Thank you for asking Fixya.

You should try restarting your computer and also uninstalling and reinstalling Yahoo Messenger. To my knowledge, Java shouldn't effect that unless you are using a web based messenger. Also, if you are unable to connect make sure that messenger is not being blocked by your firewall.

I could not chat on my yahoo messenger


You may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.

To enable scripting:

Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.


If that does not solve the problem then I would Uninstall messenger and install it again.

CAN'T SEE TEXT IN INSTANT MESSAGES?
This is an issue that is cropping up more and more. If just a new problem try exitingYahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.

1) 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:
http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/detai...
Or you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link.

This version of Window Script is already included with Vista so you would not use that link. There is also a Windows Script 5.7 released for Windows 2000 and you can find that here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai...

Many people have been having the same problem!

From Yahoo Messenger Help:
I can't see the instant messages.

Hmm, well... you may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.

To enable scripting:
Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

Copied and pasted from Yahoo Messenger Help:

Why do I receive an error when running Yahoo! Messenger?
Best guess? You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the Messenger directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

To delete the directory:

Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Click the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. Please see below.)
To install:

Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
Click the "Download Now" button.
To copy your complete Message Archive:

Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Select the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles.
Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it elsewhere.
Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer to which you are copying.

I downloaded messenger 9.0 and everything works but my im when i send an im to sumone i can see what i sent or what they said in reply whats wrong with it i uninstalled it and reinstalled a couple times


The problem is you probably had a program running when you uninstalled Messenger and its uninstalled some of the support software - This is stand alone software and not included in the Messenger download - Hence, a re-install failed to resolve it.
Check IE settings first
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK

Can't view my IMs in yahoo messenger


Hi,

This is what you should do; Restore your computer to a point before you installed the Defender Pro. Restore the computer to a point where the computer worked well (probably a date when your messenger was working well).

Once you complete the restore process, you can now reinstall a new yahoo messenger an this would work for you.
