MSN and Yahoo Messenger

I recently cleaned my hard drive on my computer.  It restored everything back to when I bought the computer.  However, when I log on to the internet I discovered that I lost my msn and yahoo messenger.  I was expecting that since I didn't have them on the computer when I got it.  I've been having a hard time downloading them.  After they've finished downloading I get a message box title " Bootstrap"  stating " Computer has performed an illegal operation".  I don't know what that mean what that mean.  Is there anyway I can download msn and yahoo messenger?  I've tried downloading from a disc and the directly from the internet.

Problem 81003002

For that error do a complete uninstall of Yahoo Messenger. Then reboot and fresh download. Please read full instructions below.
Please note that doing a clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger will erase your message archives so read here about how to copy them

First uninstall Yahoo! Messenger through add/remove programs.

If you want to do a total clean uninstall of Yahoo Messenger then also navigate to Program Files on your hard drive and delete the Messenger folder inside of the Yahoo Folder. Follow this path (XP): My Computer>>C: drive>>Program Files>>Yahoo>>Messenger. Reboot your computer (important!).

If you have a trusted registry scanner use it now. If you do not have a trusted registry scanner that you are familiar with than skip this step because you can mess things up if you do not know what you are doing. I personally use CCleaner but then I have been using it for years and know how to use the Registry scanner portion safely. Using any of these types of programs is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Make sure you know how to create a system restore point and backup any of the Registry files it changes.

It is important that now you reboot your computer. Now download and install Yahoo messenger again using the following link: Full Installer for Yahoo Messenger latest version.

I forgot my password for mssnger, what cani do?

I am afraid the only one who can find the forgotten password back is YOURSELF, and right on your computer. If you really forgot everything related to your messenger. Then take a try of this password recovery software to recover lost password. It will help you recover forgotten login password for Chat Messengers like MSN Messenger, Windows LIVE Messenger, Google Talk etc. Good luck and regards.

Problem in social view log-in

Social view plug-in is notorious for creating conflicts with Yahoo Messenger.
I recommend a clean uninstall and reinstall
Close all other programs while uninstalling, downloading and uploading
Save your Profile folder to CD if you wish to retain your Message Archives
Download Revo - double click on Yahoo Messenger - Use the 'Advanced' mode - Revo will make a Restore Point and then uninstall Messenger using the Messenger uninstall software.
It will then scan your C drive and Registry for all fragments and files that failed to uninstall.
Delete everything it finds

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 byts have been seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes before repairing

Re-start your computer

Download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Look in the C files first, and if you cannot find it somewhere, then you did not save the file the first time you downloaded it.You must reinstall it with new download.. This time save the file, then go back after it is finished downloading, and run it again,,, this time you click on the run button....

I had msn messenger. I did an up grade and when it was done it threw me back to the very old msn messenger. I removed the msn messenger from hard drive and out of regedit. But I can not down load msn...

I think there maybe is something you are missing in your description. The hard drive itself has no bearing on a download. Particularly if it is your main drive. Did you do a manual uninstall, used the uninstall feature from the old MSN program or, did you use windows un-installer?. First, i would try restore to a date prior to your un-installation. After that, I would first try to un-installed again using teh Windows "Add /Remove programs" in Windows control panel. This is based on you having either vista or XP. You can use any of may freeware utilities to clean your register (not reg edit) but, if you are not very saavy in computers, I would let the registry as is. Then, download the msn upgrade and, install it from your computer (not from the web download window). If this does not help, oplease post again with more details on your system.
