Yahoo messenger login problem.

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
From my yahoo account, I can check mail, but i can't login into yahoo messenger (v9.0.0.1389). Remember I don't have any virus or spy ware at my PC. Here is what happens.

1. I can login at yahoo using the ID at Pidgin.

2. I can login at Yahoo messenger using any other yahoo IDs. But not this one.

3. Even using this same ID, I can't login from my friend's PC, or from my office at yahoo messenger.

See, not related to virus/spy. Something other is happening i think. Any Hopes?

Ask the Experts

What is the current version of the yahoo messenger installed in your system.

if it is latest one try this  

Uninstall that yahoo messenger

and install the old version of the yahoo messenger.

Let me know if you have any issue




I'm using YIM 9 beta. Also I told that I can not login into YIM from any other PC for any version. Its kinda weird that I can login from pidgin easily.

I'll send mail to help section as per "agamal" suggested.

I hope they will help you soon ... keep us updated


I have sent them a mail, and after within 24 hours i can login from yahoo now. thanks...
