My Yahoo continues to shut down and encounters a problem while trying to cahnge pictures. It shuts down. This is on a brand new hard drive so I know that I have no malware/spyware nothing.

I am at awe because I have never had a problem with yahoo messenger in 8 years.

Wild Orchid adn ditto:
I was having the same problem and I found this forum on google, saw your post, registered and logged in. I think I may have a solution for you: go to this page and download an older version of messenger. Im using the 5.5 and it works perfectly. My messenger name is PondoSinatra2005. Give me an IM if it works or let me know. http://www.yazakpro....erdownloads.htm

I reformatted the hard drive and it still shut down. I put in a new hard drive and tried again...and that didn't work. The only way i got it to work was too install win2k and then download yahoo, then install winXP. I have no idea why.

So, you're sayin it worked after installing w2k? After failing to get messenger7.whatever to work I had excellent results with 5.5. Im a big fan of older-version software. New stuff have too many bellsand whistles that are useless.
And W2k just better for everything. I can't play some of my favorite games on xp either. Im thinking of going back also. Another good forum is www.hackinthebox.com . It's slow but has the brightest geeks on the net. My username there is : nomadsoul

I reinstalled win2k on a clean drive. Then, I installed messenger. then....re-upgraded to winXP pro and everything works fine. I called Yahoo customer service and they walked me through everything and she finally said they don't know.

I too use older versions from time to time.

As for as my games go (Quake), i have never had any problems.

Thanks to whoever it was that suggested Trillian....It's AWESOME and the heck with Yahoo messenger now. After two days of fighting with it, I'll stick with Trillian, which allows me to message everyone!

I still can't access yahoo mail from Internet Explorer, but can through Firefox, so I'm changing my default browser as well since firefox works much better anyway!
