I'm having trouble keeping my YIM online. I'll log on, and it will continuously kick me off every ten minutes or so. I currently have Version 9 installed on my Vista 64-bit, but I've tried various versions and they all do it. I've messed with the connection of YIM, but nothing seems to work. I seem to be the only one I know who has this problem. I checked my firewalls. Nothing seems to fix the problem. Any help?

I have Webroot Internet Essentials installed...it does anti-virus and anti-spyware.

I've tried YIM Vista Beta, 8.5, as well as 9, which is what I use now. I may have also tried 8, I don't remember.

hmmm, try using another chat client all together that is compatible with multiple IM Protocols.

Trillian.cc comes to mind

Pidgeon (formerly GAIM)

Several more you can choose from. See if you get kicked off one of those in Yahoo! IM.
