No I havent installed anything.

I was able to view profiles up until about 3 days ago...then nothing happens when I click on it.

I havent done anything different that I can think of.

I even uninstalled messenger and put it back on .....still wont let me view profiles.

Have you checked your YIM preferences to see if they have changed?

Have you downloaded any Microsoft Updates in the last few days.

New ones were issued Tuesday and if your computer was set for automatic updates (which it should be) you may have downloaded some.

They may have changed security or firewall settings.

Make sure that the ap you want to use is enabled in IE as well as in the firewall settings.

Just for the heck of it, try holding the control key down while you click on profiles. You might have a popup blocker that's keeping them from opening.

Hello. I am having problems also. I use Windows XP and I cannot edit my profile information or view other's profiles. When I'm in chat I can view other's profiles but not my own. Instead I've been getting a blank screen. I've emailed yahoo support and they said they know about the problem and it should be fixed soon. Hopefully that is true. If anyone knows of any other solutions I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!!!!
