  1. Hasn't happened for a while, but not Yahoo is at it again.

    When I open my email and my chat opens, it stays open just a
    couple seconds and then disconnects. Any attempt to reconnect
    gets treated the same way. I get a window explaining that I have
    been disconnected because I've signed into Yahoo from another
    computer. Not true.

    What's happening?

    And I never do sign into Yahoo IM, I just use Chat from my email.

    Thanks

    I've submitted this to Yahoo but they (I believe purposely)
    misinterpreted my question and blamed me for doing something
    or other. Also not true.

    Im with you on that one. I got banned from Yahoo answers just because i posted a URL to my freewebs page!. Appauling service and they have lost another member (people are still saying that Spyware doctor will remove Antivirus 08 :stickout:
    Basically they will give you that reply because they have absoultley no idea how to solve your answer.

    First make sure you have the lates flash play. IT is required to run Yahoo so update that first beofre trying anything else if its not.

    If that doesnt solve your problem i believe a reintall will solve it. If you uninstall Yahoo chat and then reinstall it will probably work.
    Also make sure you redownload. Dont use any existing installs you have.
