Yahoo Messenger version 10 works on Windows XP and later. Uninstall all versions of YM from your computer via the control panel. Download and install the latest version from http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/.

    Right Click on Yahoo Messenger icon go to Properties then under compatibility tab make sure nothing is checked if you have any of those boxes checked uncheck it. Then try to open it again.

I had downloaded Yahoo Messenger awhile back..and is not coming up when I tried to open it..


I'm going to guess you're computer is running on Windows. I'm using Windows 7 and but the other versions will be very similar. I would recommend removing Messenger and reloading it. Click on the Start button and choose 'Control Panel' from the pop-up window. Under 'Programs' click on 'Uninstall a Program'. Go down the list and find 'Yahoo Messenger' probably at the very bottom since they are listed alphabetically. Right click on in and select 'Uninstall/Change'. Follow the instructions to uninstall. Then go to Yahoo and download a clean version of Messenger. I hope this helps

I have windows 7 enterprise, my yahoo messenger has stopped working i need a compatible version


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

Yahoo messenger automatically shut down


Please upgrade first the version of your Windows Internet Explorer. The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on Internet Explorer.

If you are using different web browser like Mozilla Firefox, It doesn't matter. Just install Internet Explorer 8 compatible with your operating system and do not default it as your browser.

Do this and you will find it easy to access your yahoo Messenger in just a second.

Here is the link for downloading Internet Explorer version 8. Select the operating system you are currently use.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

After installing the IE8 and Yahoo Messenger 10, restart your computer.

Please comeback after establishing your Yahoo Messenger connection and give me some rating.

Thank You for using Fixya.

My yahoo messenger account has been locked


Do you have windows vista?
Yahoo messenger 9, is BETA and very buggy.. Uninstall this program.
Then
Find and install an older version of messenger. Yahoo messenger 8.1 will work.

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
