I cannot go through to my yahoo mail using my yahoo messenger,that i usually did before.when i'mclicking it now a messages comes up and say that application cannot be found. so what i am doing now is i go...

You may need to uninstall and reinstall your yahoo messenger.

If you are still signed into your messenger and try to uninstall; it may not work.
Go to start menu at bottom left
Go to control panel
Click on add/remove programs
Select the Yahoo Messenger
Uninstall it.

You can reinstall it at this link

I never recommend people reinstall programs/applications over top of the old ones. It usually causes issues.

I also recommend you clear your cache.

My environment in yahoo messenger is not working??? How to make it work

This is an issue that is cropping up more and more. If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo 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:…

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:…

Yahoo messenger window not responding

There are still some compatibility problems with Internet Explorer 8. One common problem seems to be with add-ons in the browser itself that create conflicts. The workaround seems to be to disable all add-ons, (including your Yahoo messenger), then add them back in one at a time to see which is causing the conflict. You could try this and see if the Yahoo works with IE8 before adding in the others. There is also the option to run IE8 with no add-ons, and see if the problems persist.(Rt. click icon to start)
Or you could search the newsgroups at MS and see if anyone there has a solution. This is pretty new, as you know, but MS support has been working through these issues since the beta versions and has a more heads up understanding of the what's involved. They can be accessed by clicking here.
Or you can try using IE8 in compatibility mode for particular sites you have trouble with, but I suspect that if Yahoo doesn't have an update for the messenger that fixes the problem you may have to revert back to Internet Explorer 7 for awhile....

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
