No Texts in Yahoo Messenger

Hello, I had no text in window chat of my yahoo messenger. I am using window 7, I have been trying 100 + different things but to no avail. It happened to me before, I downloaded the old version ( version 9 ) and It worked but not this time. Any expert out there can help me with this please. Thanks !

The best thing to do would be to uninstall yahoo messenger and delete all folders associated with it.
Download trial version of Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems and uninstall yahoo messenger and its leftover items using this utility.

Re-install the latest version 11.5 of yahoo messenger.Lets us know how it goes.

Ok i had a look at it and here is what you try this time.Uninstall yahoo messenger using control panel-programs & features and this time manual delete this folder from your system:C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Yahoo.

Reboot and install yahoo messenger.See if it works now.

hi
This Solved my problem.open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). 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 if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it.
Then Exit your Yahoo Messenger from the bottom bar (near the clock) or End Process it from task manager(Ctrl+Alt+Del -> process tab).
now run again your Yahoo Messenger!!
Have FUN!
Source that helped me Much was Temp from Y! answers(regards from him/her)
