Recently my yahoo messenger 8.1 got messed up,I can't view text in pm and chatrooms,the text has disappeared,this has happened before when I tried installing mcafee,kaspersky,and avg (I believe they have permanently altered the state of my messenger,plus I downloaded them from a collection on a cd it could of been unsafe),I don't know what to do besides backing up my computer and formatting it!Please help! If you've got teamviewer I'd gladly show you what's wrong on my computer,and let you peruse it,my yahoo messenger id is "0011111111111101011111111111100" (without quotes). I now am forced to login to yahoo through an alternate chat client called YahElite. Here is a screenshot of my yahoo messenger with a pm already sent but not displaying..


Oh and I recently updated to sp3 and what happened was my system protect and spyware terminator blocked some files from being overwritten (they were system files),so now when I open system restore I get a window that looks like its frozen!

I am having the same problem. I cannot IM / PM anyone in Yahoo Chat. I can see them typing, but I get nothing. I reply, and they get nothing. Sometimes I can see what they are writing, but I cannot write them. What gives? I don't think this is a virus problem since lots of other people are having the same problem. Adding people as a friend makes it work, but c'mon, Chat is for talking to strangers that you don't have on your list!

You said you're forced to login with YahElite? Does Yahoo Chat work with IM / PMs with YahElite? Please let me know! Thanks!!
