I've seen the exact same problem on my end, but only when using a weak wireless connection. Two issues I suggest to be the cause, one being a wireless connection that is not quite as strong as you may be believing that it is ( I've seen that quite a bit on my end ). That means that I.E. or FireFox may SEEM to be working great with whatever wireless connection a person may have but in fact it is very close to the edge of termination. The other possibility that I have seen is simply the Yahoo server that uploading the program to you is being over-used, meaning you may have to wait until a more favorable time or TRY to pick on a different Yahoo server, such as the British, Aussie, or Asian server. Just make sure you get the version of YM that speaks your language.

I can not sign into yahoo messenger


Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser
Download 'ccleaner' and use it daily. Run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

On the sign-in page click Messenger > Connection Preferences - make sure there is nothing untoward in the lower 2 boxes - if incorrect make changes using the drop-box options > OK

Copy this Yahoo secure site URL
https://www.yahoo.com/
Open Yahoo Messenger > Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN settings > Uncheck everything then check 'Automatically detect settings' and 'Use a proxy server' > Advanced > Paste the address in the secure box and type 5050 in the port box > OK
Sign in

Cant log in yahoo messenger due to error socialview plug in


Uninstall everything yahoo related from add/remove programs. Go to your C:, then Program Files and delete the yahoo folder from there also. Now go download ccleaner from www.download.com and run the cleaner, once that is done run the registry cleaner a couple times.

Try re-installing the latest yahoo from there. IF that failed also, you have one last shot that will work but it can be tedious a bit and a little dangerous so make sure to back up your files before proceeding. If the error still happens, do all of the above except for re-installing the yahoo. Now from the run command (Windows Logo Key + R), type: regedit <Hit ENTER>. Up top click on Edit and then click Find. Type: Yahoo! <Hit Enter>. Delete what it found and then press F3 to find the next yahoo! item. Delete everything it finds till there are no more matches found. Close the Regedit and reboot the pc. Now re-install the latest Yahoo Messenger and the problem is gone. I have done this several times for clients and this fixes it 100% of the time. Cheers!

I tried downloading Yahoo Version 10 and I got the message "This application has failed to start because d3d9.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem". I tried re starting...


It seems you are installing the Yahoo messenger using the Offline Installer. Don't just reinstall it, but uninstall the whole yahoo messenger packages, even from the registry and reinstall it after your computer is restarted.

First uninstall the yahoo messenger and then download and run this program (click here). Open the link, click the "Download Now" button, wait for about 20 seconds while the countdown timer runs, and then click "Download Now File" link once the countdown timer resets to 0. After it's downloaded and installed, close all the applications, open the program and click "Run Cleaner" and proceed forward by pressing yes (if you are asked), wait for few seconds and after it's done, click "Registry" on the left pane with blue icon. Now on the right pane, click "Scan for issues" then wait for another few minutes/seconds until the scanning progress reaches 100%, the click "Fix Selected Issues" > "No" > "Fix all selected issues" > "Ok" > "Close". After it's done, restart your computer and install the yahoomessenger (download yahoo messenger online isntaller) That should fix your problem with the yahoo messenger. If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

I cant use yahoo 10 in my pc they give me a error all the time i cant sign in


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/08/18/help-with-sign-on-issues-in-yahoo-messenger-9-0/

My own advice is:-

1) Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser
Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Use the settings as downloaded - Click on the 'Run Cleaner' tab until '0 bytes removed'

2) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

3) Have more than one browser available for trouble shooting. Keep browsers up to date to incorporate all the patches - I run Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Keep one browser clear of add-ons and plug-ins.
Always have the browser you are using designated as default - even if you only have one

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date if you have it

5) Sign in here to reset cookies
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '@Yahoo.com' from your username to sign in

7) Check the date and time are correct on your computer

8) If you have your settings to sign in automatically and recently changed your password check this out
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/messenger/mstacantsignin.html

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.Disable your firewall long enough to make a trial sign-in

10) Messenger 10 now carries a troubleshooting log - if you have a degree in computer science the results may be of some use

11) AVG free users may be interested in this forum
http://forums.avg.com/ca-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=40313

12) Time to consider a re-install.
Save your Profile folder to hard disk, if you wish to retain your message archives.
Download 'Revo free' and uninstall in the 'Advanced'mode. This will scan your C drive and Registry for anything left behind after it runs the yahoo uninstall software. Delete everything it finds.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
Run ccleaner
Restart your pc
Download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Hey,



it might happen if you are trying to download yahoo messenger directly from yahoo.com.



You may use software sites to download yahoo messenger version 9 and more likely it would work n vista.


One of the link is :-
