Hi ali Quentin.

1. do you use a built-in webcam?

2. were you able to use the webcam in Yahoo before?

3. This only happens with Yahoo messenger?

Step 1:

You can consult the following links to support Yahoo and check if it helps:

If it only happens with Yahoo, then try to uninstall and reinstall Yahoo messenger and check.

Check out the following link to uninstall a program:

  • start-up: how to stop my yahoo messenger and windows messenger from starting when signing

    want to know how to stop my yahoo messenger and windows messenger from starting when signing.

    It is always better to stop programs from starting with Windows from the programs themselves, so look in their choices first. There may be an entry in your start > programs > startup folder which can simply be removed. If a program does not offer a way to control the start-up of its preferences, use msconfig to clear the check box next to its name, apply and OK on. Also take a look in your programs > startup folder to see if there is an entry for the application it.

    Start Orb > Search box > type: msconfig and when it appears in the results area above, right-click and choose 'run as administrator '.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab. You don't need to restart immediately, but next time you do, you will get a dialog box saying that you have used the utility. Usually, it will be blocked by Windows Defender, and you need to allow it to run so that you can then check the box that says in effect, "don't mind to this subject again".

    Important - do not use the System Configuration utility to stop the process. Use Services and stop all services, unless you really, really know what you're doing.

    The free Autoruns program is very useful for managing your Startup -

  • BlackBerry smartphones where can suggest us new things for Yahoo Messenger and other RIM IM clients?

    I just downloaded the new version of Yahoo Messenger and I like the user interface. But whenever a new version comes out, this application creates a less complete story of contact behavior. There are several versions the contact's status appeared in the open conversation, as well as of the timestamp, the date on which the status. This includes Idle and Custom state changes. Who has disappeared. In the latest version, we could see the time the contact signed in or out last and sometimes both. Now they are gone as soon as you close the conversation.

    The idea of having Yahoo until on the BlackBerry all the time, it's that you don't have to be staring at the screen all the time, you should be able to come out of your pocket and find the events that took place that does not trigger alarms. I would like to that story all contact to be there, as long as I want to keep active. How can I make this suggestion to RIM for the next version of Yahoo Messenger? Thank you.

    Alternatively, you can send your suggestions to [email protected]
