Windows 7: Yahoo Messenger

Windows 7
Yahoo Messenger

Just recently I've encountered the problem where I cannot see the text that I type in Yahoo IM and as wellas that it frequently closes down before I've had a chance to do anything saying that an error is preventing the program from working properly. I'm pretty dense when it comes to stuff like this and a quick search of the forum before posting found this:

This can solve "can't see text in yahoo messenger"
Start -> run -> regedit -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion ->Internet Settings -> Zones then In zones part you must have 0,1,2,3,4 ,If not delete other ones(Don't delete 0,1,2,3,4)
Note:First Make a backup from registery If any problem happend you can use it for restore registery(No problem happend for me)

However, none of it means anything to me whatsoever - I have no idea where to begin - please can someone help?

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

I'm a rater pragmatic guy (if that's even a word )
So before I would advise you to meddle with the registry I'd say there are so many good multi-IM clients out there and most of them can handle/connect to yahoo.
So try Pidgin portable
or Miranda portable
and if they have the same problem, it's a problem on your side, if they work it's with Yahoo. (I've chosen portable programs so you don't need to install anything...just unzip and uninstall either...just delete the folder

Welcome sparkinthedark

I would uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger, then download a new copy of the latest version & install it.

Text not showing

Were you ever able to fix this problem with your yahoo messenger by chance, because I am having the same problem, and uninstalling it and reinstalling the newest version does not fix the problem whatsoever. Please help if you can!
