Yahoo Mail registers in Mail but cannot access the Email itself - also personal folders, delete boxes do not appear 2nd time it's happened

Uninstall yahoo mail from your computer. Just don't reinstall without uninstalling it first. Once it has been uninstalled, go to yahoo's web page to get a new download of Mail. Reinstall Yahoo Mail and that should fix it.

I've made a mistake, It was not my intention to install, I've lost my Yahoo home page and would like it back. Please let me know in simple terms on how to delete Thankyou

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You have to uninstall the inbox entirely.

It should be just as easy as going in and manually deleting, but many people are finding it quite difficult to get rid of it all. It embeds itself pretty deep.

This is a free trial Please download the free version of Revo from the link below

Once downloaded. make sure to run the file, to install Revo.,

Revo is an uninstaller tool, that works much better then the built in windows uninstall tool. Once installed, run the revo program. Open revo, find program you want to delete, double click it, to start uninstall process, select advanced, click select and delete all files as they come up. Your program will be gone!

To make Yahoo your homepage again; please click on the link below;

Hope this helps!

I cant install yahoo messenger 10 ...plz help

for Windows OS: If your installation stuck on finishing installation, just terminate the process. Use CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill YM10SETUP process. I'm sure it would be around 95% in completing installation. You can start using it by click on yahoo messenger icon on desktop or by clicking on START menu. By doing this, you can use yahoo messenger like usual. If there's problem happens, you must re-install yahoo messenger or otherwise you'll keep faces the problem over again.

Sign in problem with yahoo messenger ? Error Message 81003004

This is a beast of a problem believed to be created by a Yahoo update and firewall settings. You have 2 possible solutions to try.
1) Clean uninstall and download a current program
2) Clean uninstall and download a 8.0 version

1) Close all programs when uninstalling, downloading and uploading
2) Save your Profile folder to a CD if you wish to retain your message Archives.
3) Download Revo uninstaller - this will use the Yahoo software to uninstall and follow it up with a computer scan after to look for any software left behind and offer it up for deletion.
4) When you are ready to run Revo, double click on the Yahoo Messenger software and then select the 'Advanced' mode from the Revo options
5) Allow the uninstall and scan to function, if the scan offers anything up for deletion select everything and delete it.
6) Download ccleaner and run it through until clean
7) Shut down computer
8) Power off your router for 1 minute
9) Restart computer
10) Download Messenger from here - use the links for the version you want
11) Before downloading your choice check the 'Technical tab' to ensure you have the necessary Operating System

I suggest you download Ashampoo-UnInstaller from

But if this software couldn't help you, I suggest you to delete yahoo messenger manually (goto C:\Program files) and delete Yahoo messenger folder manually and try to re-install your yahoo messenger.

Cannot install yahoo messenger

Vista is the key as its looking for the administrator to complete the installation
You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
