    Use the newest version of Yahoo Messenger. Updating can also fix issues from using older versions of Yahoo Messenger.

SOURCE: Action failed for file avgtdix.sys: starting service....

There is a known issue between AVG 8 and Anniversary Edition of Ad-Aware which gives exactly this error, so if you perhaps just got that ad-aware, uninstall it too before trying to reinstall AVG.

Then run the uninstall/cleanup util for Avast because the Windows Add/Remove isn't good for uninstalling antivirus programs. Then try reinstalling it again. If you downloaded the installation package, then it provides the uninstall option. Disable Ad-Aware's Adwatch first! Run the AVG installer. Choose the uninstall option and follow the wizard. When you get to the part to remove user settings, select it. Restart your computer then... Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got and update it.
Restart Windows twice before you re-enable anything disabled earlier.

Should this not work and you get the same error, that means the original errornous installation is still not out of your system. Download the AVG remover from here:
http://www.avg.com/download-tools
Remove your AVG and reboot to make sure it is not there any more, and try installing again.

Let me know if the solution worked and if yes please rate me:)

Try what it says, "check firewall settings and retry". Disable your Firewall software and try to download messenger again. It should work.

When downloading yahoo messenger, why do I get an error that says Yahoo did not finish installing because there is a missing component?it says d3d9.dll was not found


Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the d3d9.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

Welcome to FixYa!


The XML application in your computer might be corrupted which Yahoo Messenger uses to display the chat box properly. In most cases, it is the result of a virus/malware activity.


Here's what to do:
  • 1. Download the Free Edition of Malware Bytes HERE.
  • 2. Save the file.
  • 3. Double click the downloaded file or if prompted to run the file, click yes to install Malware Bytes.
  • 4. After installation. Launch or Open Malware Bytes. (Double click on the Malware Bytes icon on the desktop).
  • 5.Click on the Update Tab and click on Check Updates (It will download the latest virus definitions)
  • 6. After updating, click the Scanner Tab and do a Full Scan.
  • 7. After scanning, click on View Results.
  • 8. Then click on Remove Selected.

Note:

The Free Edition of Malware Bytes will not conflict your recent anti-virus software because it does not have real time protection features.


Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger again.


If this does not resolve the issue, re-install Yahoo Messenger. Since the Malwares have been removed, there is a great chance that the re-installation will solve the problem.

I hope that this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Unable to Install Yahoo! Messenger Firewall Issue or What?


The problem is with the Yahoo uninstall software which fails to clear the old Messenger folder out and creates conflicts with the incoming new software - Your firewall doesn't know whats happening and hoists a red flag. If you had not started to uninstall I would have recommend you download revo and uninstall with that.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
bear this in mind if you manage to install messenger but still have problems
You have to go into your C drive and delete the left behind software
Click ( > ) Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >>Yahoo >> Messenger - if you have Vista the folder should be empty - if you have pre- Vista the only sub-folder remaining should be 'Profile' ( The message Archive file) manually delete everything except 'Profile' by right clicking and deleting. When finished restart your computer and finish the install

Installation of yahoo messenger won't install


Yeah it been a problem for so many others like you, check out this official solution at YMessBlog
But I recommend to you install a standalone version ;
A standalone version is a full complete installation of Yahoo Messenger ,which doesnt connect to internet for further installation of the software.
So download the latest Yahoo Messenger from here at softpedia
Hope that helps !!

I HAVE A STRONG VIRUS IN MY COMPUTER


Your antivirus may be corrupted by the virus, or it has not this virus on the latest update

First install an antivirus, update it to latest version , and try doing a full scan: AVG Free - Download AVG

If the antivirus is not enough use an antimalaware that removes more viruses use this one: Spybot - Search & Destroy - Free software download , install, update, and perform a full system scan.

If that is still not enough, the best thing to do is doing a backup of your files, and reinstalling Windows.
