    Try this. Go to your Zone Alarm Program Control . Programs, right click on the Yahoo Messenger client, then click to 'remove it' from the list. Now right click on your Zone Alarm icon in your system tray, select 'shutdown Zone Alarm' and wait about 30 seconds. Now open Zone Alarm again then try to use Yahoo Messenger. You should get a new Zone Alarm Program alert, click 'allow' and the 'remember this' box. Can you now connect?

    I tried exactly what you suggested, and yahoo msngr still doesn't work.

    (I'm not the OP, but my problem sounds identical to his/hers.)

    I received no new ZA popup msgs after starting Yahoo - it simply wouldn't connect.


    I also started my own thread:

    I Have a similar problem...but perhaps it's because i am not configuring ZA to work properly with Yahoo messenger 8. the problem is this.....

    when i try to use Yahoo msgr , with ZA on, it will work, but will not allow me to open up any "hyperlinks" to communicate with Internet Explorer (such as when I would like to view a person's profile). IT WILL DO THIS WHEN ZA is OFF , HOWEVER....my question is, HOW do i configure ZA to work with yahoo and IE respectively?

    THANKS!!
