Yahoo messenger sign up problems

by tmashburn / May 16, 2006 5:01 PM PDT

while trying today morning it went through.. but now when I again tried to sign in it is telling "you have been signed out because you signed in on a different computer or device". I tried this after restarting my system but even then having the same problem. Can any body help me why I am getting this?

thanks in advance,
Anand

Anand,
I was facing the same problem at sign-up: "You have been signed out because you signed in on a different computer or device."

Solution: Uninstall Yahoo Messanger and then install it. I installed only Messenger.. no toolbar no services etc. This should solve your problem.

Thanks

HI.. I have problems signing in on yahoo msgr (8.1).. With the same exisiting id and password I can sign in on yahoo account and check my mails... but when I do the same on yahoo messenger its no help.. It always gives the window stating "problems signing in.. try again later" Usually this window props up when you give a wrong password or id.. In my case both are correct as I have tried with yahoo mail..i could successfully log in.. SO please help!!!
