Hi Experts
I can install Yahoo Messenger but when I send the message, but text message not visible to
myself and also at other end(with whom I  would like to chat). Offcourse its Indication of Virus or
Trojan sitting in my system. Its annoyed me. Pls guide.

For time being I suggest you to use Yahoo mail to chat because yahoo mail has chat and text plugin enabled on the left hand side of the window.

look at the image below
 yahoo mail -- chat plugin
Uninstall -- restart computer and re-install to check the issue persists

If that does not work try this

Open Registry editor,--- Run--> regedit.exe--> click file--> click export--> and save the file (for backup)

Now Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft\ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially before zero special character which looks similar to 0 try deleting it.


Even if that does not solve , try the below link

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Its not that scary to do a registry editing and also you gonna backup the entire registry so incase anything goes wrong you will have the option to restore it.

Have you checked whether the registry entry with special character before zero is there or not, in the location

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft\ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones

If there can delete it. before that take the entire backup of registry.

Always take the back up of the entire registry before editing.

Unusual for me using the letter L instead of numbers, there is a 50-50 chance that this registry entry has made by virus or your company's System Administrator.

Go ahead and delete the L zone and check the issue persist (do not restart your laptop)

I Think issue will be solved.

If the issue is not resolved import your registry backup file by opening registry editor -- click file and click import--select the file--click Ok.
