I just formatted my harddrive today just to clean out my pc.I just got done installing everything back in and running updates and all that fun stuff. Its done! So I turn on my yahoo messenger. Everything works fine untill I try to right click the Icon on the start bar or when I try to change my status.No error messages nothing. It just closes out. I was reading a little on it on random forums and alot of people are saying it is caused by windows blinds, which I do have on. Then most of them say to get an older version of yahoo, but I was hoping someone knew a way to fix it on the newer YIM? any help would be appreciated thank you.

Ok Nevermind I found the fix 13 mins after I posted this lol. Windows blinds has a "per application" program on it. You put ypager in and select "Do not skin". Walla! works fine again.
