Someone hacked my account and changed my security questions as well as alternate email address. Can I recover my Yahoo Messenger and Mail account?

P
Answer by Pete Clapp

In this case, account recovery is possible only if you have set up a recovery phone number to send the password reset code to your phone. If you did not attached any number, then the account is lost for good because there is no way you can prove that the stolen account is yours since the person who stole it has all the required info for verification.

There is no way you can delete a sent message. On the local computer you can clear chat history by going to Messenger > Preferences > Conversation History and check Do not keep a history of my conversations.

Answer by Pete Clapp

That was possible in the past but Yahoo secured all the sending and receiving protocols and nowadays it's impossible to tell where the message is coming from regarding IP address, operating system used, etc.

After I downloaded Yahoo Messenger, it wasn't installed on my computer and every time at the last stage it failed to install. What should I do?

Answer by Andrew Constandache

Besides its main installation package, the setup also contains Microsoft Visual Runtime 2005/2008 (it differs according to the version of Yahoo Messenger you try to install). Before you install the application, make sure these components are removed from your computer. Also Adobe Flash is a component from which the chat software takes advantage of. For best results, manually remove these components and then try and install again the main package. Also, if you use Windows Vista, 7 or 8 when you try to install the package, make sure you right click the file and select "Run As Administrator". In most of the cases this is the problem encountered by many users.

Try closing your e-mail while logging into the application because you can't be online in two different locations regarding Yahoo services. This situation happens when you are already logged in on another device.

Answer by Julia Bocchetta

Yahoo has shutdown the only possible way of integrating Yahoo Messenger into websites through Pingbox. I believe there is no solution available at the moment to implement the Messenger into websites.
