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. run reginout cleaner to easily fix it

When I type the message in chat box, it doesn't show me the words what I type and I am able to recieve the messages but cant see.


Some virus can cause this bug in Yahoo Messenger. Check your Internet Options, go to Security Tab, and see if there is a new item. Normal items there are Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted sites, and Restricted sites. If you see a new item, chances are you were hit by a virus.

To resolve this, open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft\ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it. (Backup your registry first). If you were able to delete that extra item, this might fix the bug, and you will be able to see the chat messages again in yahoo messenger.

If it does not work, try registering the dlls for scripting. To do this:

Click Start, then click Run. type in the open box:

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

and then press Enter or click OK.

Next, click Start, then click Run. Type in the open box:

regsvr32 jscript.dll

and then press Enter or click OK.

Check first if you are inputting the correct password. Next try going in to Messenger>Connection Preference> then Click No Proxies

If this won't work, try No Network Detection instead.

Last resort is to c
heck your Internet Explorer settings by going to Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings

Then check Automatically Detect Settings.

Also do this again - Tools>Internet Options>Connections>

Then this time click LAN Settings and check Automatically Detect Settings

Click Apply and then try logging in to Yahoo Messenger again.

About signing in in yahoo messenger


Yahoo messenger presently is undergoing few changes at the server end. In order to login efficiently I use to run two ping commands. To do so, press on start button click on run button type cmd in the box and hit ok button. In the black window now type exactly the same in the bracket remember brackets are not included in the command (ping www.yahoo.com -t) don't forget to put space after .com before typing -t. -t is hyphen t. repeat this message once more and you will be able to login through messenger. Happy chatting

Yahoo chat box


Hi,

First of all your question is not clear and if i am getting it correct that you are not able to get into the chat room or cant see anyone there so here are some tips..

Are you actually getting into the chat room? You have to fill in a captcha code (the window with the garbled numbers and letters) Once you fill that in correctly then you will be in the room.

Here is how to get to chat rooms.

After you get logged into yahoo messenger look up at the top of it you will see Messenger , Contacts, Actions ,Help.
Click on messenger then down about half way click on Yahoo! Chat and then Join room.

That will open a new window with all the chat room categories which will be on the left side and the room listings will be on the right side.

Lets say you want to go to a music room? you just find Music on the left side and click on it, that will make all the available music rooms show up on the right side. Then maybe you want to try one of the Rock rooms,so just click on the little + sign and that will expand and show all the rooms that are under Rock. Double click on which ever room you want to go into.

A small window will pop up with some numbers and letters that is called the captcha screen, fill it out and hit enter.
If for some reason that don't show up just look up at the top of the chat room window and you will see a big long blue
colored link, click on that and it will open a web page captcha screen for you to fill out. Fill it in hit enter or
whatever it is and you will be officially in a chat room.

If you want to change rooms just hit the Chat button at the top of the room window and repeat the selection process
and join another room.
