    1st.. use a font we can all see please.....

    secondly .. uninstall the corrupt yahoo messenger..

    go to www.yahoo.com and download and install yahoo messenger.

    Do not use a locally saved copy of the ym installer. I have seen it have problems before.

    try logging into the webmessenger version.

    I have seen this once before on my system actually.

    Not sure what the problem was but after accessing it via the web messenger version it worked fine.

    Also have you tried using a different ID to see if it could be related to your YM profile?

    i have a weird problem

    i have a problem with my yahoo messenger version 8.0, i tried older versions and re-installed the yahoo messenger but it still has the same problems. it's weird coz i think i'm the only having this problems here and this bever happened before. i just got a new computer it's windows service pack 2. and when i downloaded yahoo messenger and installed it, it was ok. but i can't read messages that people send me. the message window is just blank but message windows appear indicating that there's a message. and it's funny coz this only happen in yahoo messenger, i even had a trouble downloading it at first coz when i click download it won't and i finally got a solution, now this. it's funny coz how i read the messages i read sent to me is by saving it into a .txt file and open it in notepad, then i can see the messages. it's very troublesome, coz i have so many messages arriving and i have to do that every single time i reply to them and they send a message back.. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
