I can not get yahoo messenger to work at all. When I try to sign in to messenger I get a rectangle box titled Microsoft windows in left corner and it reads "Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working". I also have the same thing happen with Internet Exporer from time to time, in that the rectangle box pops up in the screen and saying "internet explorer has stopped working". It also says Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. I have uninstalled messenger(yahoo) and reinstalled but to no avail..

A few things you may wish to try.

First update Flash Player from http://www.adobe.com.../downloads.html
Then update Java at http://www.java.com/...nload/index.jsp

If this does not solve your problems, for the time being it may help to downgrade to Y! Messenger 8.1. Make sure you uninstall 9.0 first. 8.1.0.421 is considered the most stable. http://www.freecreed...gr-archive.html

Finally, when installing Yahoo Messenger it helps to right-click the setup file and click Run as Administrator.

The Yahoo 8.1 is working, thank you.. I have some concerns though about what anti-virus/spyware should I be using, currently I have Paretologic antivirus and Pareto logic reg. cure I recently purchased these( I saw them I suppose on an ad page, when I was visiting geeks to go. Anyway in an earlier post I was told I should uninstall these because they are worthless and maybe dangerous. In addition I should tell you I have downloaded many songs via limewire and I've been told not to do that anymore... and another bit of info I play poker online I use a tracking program called Poker Office 2.0 In the past I have recieved error messages saying "problem caused by poker office.. I hope this information usefull, I really wish I was more knowledgble concerning computers.
