Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Messenger won't wake up.

I've been using messenger for years, suddenly after working fine yesterday, last night i tried to log in and the window that comes up no longer is the same. it has the sleeping face dude guy and then it gives only the options of 'sign in' or 'cancel'. 'cancel' is working brilliantly, however 'sign in' simply reacts as if its going to open the little face guy turns yellow for a split second and then back to sleep and maybe 2 seconds later the window closes. i'm able to use chat in email, however i have a video conference in the morning with a potential editor for my first book. HELP!

Problems with log in to Yahoo Messenger

Hello. You can probably fix this condition by following these steps:

  1. Click on the gear icon in the upper-right of the IE window
  2. Click on Internet Options
  3. Click on the Advanced tab
  4. In the Settings window, scroll all the way down to "Use TLS 1.0" and make sure that is checked.
  5. Click Apply, then OK.
That should fix it for you. This is due to a recent change in how Yahoo handles login requests.

I hope this is helpful.
