    It only lets me log in half the time it either says I entered the wrong info, wont load log on webpage, and boots me off at random times

    Uhm... I don't know. Do you have the most recent version? I don't have problems like that. It kicks me off once in a while, but very rarely.

    I've been having some trouble for the last couple of days.
    I do get on, however, after two or three tries.
    And often I get on directly.
    Actually, I find Yahoo generally pretty problem free.

    I've used Yahoo for well over five years, I can count the problems I have had on one hand. Maybe the problem is closer to home.

    I rarely have trouble with YM, but refuse to upgrade to their advertising-laden versions (I'm still clinging to 7.0.2.120). Version 8.0 and up are pieces of shit, but I see there's a new 9.0 beta out.

    Here's a great resource for prior versions of all IM clients:

    Maybe the problem originates with Yahoo also being an informant with the Chinese secret police in getting news reporters censored and jailed.

    I use it on a g4 its the new version the beta one, the old one I never had problems. Lately its like I get an unknown allowance of how many times in the day I get. Often to get it to notice the camera I have to log out and than in again, this is like roulette since often I dont get to come back. Sometimes everything runs perfect but other-days its like interrogating someone in a language you or he doesn't speak. I just get no where

    Your problem is probably with the Beta version. Go back to the standard version and see if there isn't a difference.

    My yahoo has been acting up ALL day. It kept dying and now it won't even let me login. I'm really pissed because I was in the middle of a conversation and it just died. I hope that person doesn't think I'm rude for just leaving like that.
