Sometimes proxy setting or a firewall or even the antivirus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or antivirus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10.

I had a yahoo messenger in my other computer, do I have to download a new yahoo messenger in this new lap top?


Yes you need to download a new yahoo messenger into your new laptop. Since the yahoo messenger is the application needed to connect to your account. if you don't want to install a program into your laptop but you still want to have the functionality of chatting us YM then you can access your yahoo email from yahoo. There is already a feature from mail like a yahoo messenger.

My Yahoo Messenger hangs then it would say (not responding...). What can i do to fix this? Help me please?


Few sugesstions :

1) Check whether if your windows is installing new updates, sometimes YM does crash when window is updating. If you are using Win7, then just go to:
--> Control panel/ System & security/ Windows Update/ Change setting. In the setting panel, you will see " Important Updates " box selection. Change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them". Restart your pc/laptop, then try log in to your YM.

2) *This step won't be necessary but won't do any harm too, go to:
Control Panel --> System & Security --> System --> Advance System Settings. In the " Advance " tab, click "setting" at the " performance " column. Select " Data Execution Prevention ", select " Turn on DEP for all programs & services except those i select", Insert your YahooMessenger.exe (C:/Program Files/Yahoo!/Messenger/YahooMessenger) into the add list. Restart PC/laptop & try to log in to YM.
3) If those won't work, uninstall your current YM, restart your pc/laptop, then try installing a new one.

** If it still crash, then your internet connection might be the problem, & also, Yahoo! can be down sometimes too.
