im new here and wasnt sure which section to put this in but basically my problem is this, i recently had my whole computer reformatted and ive just been installing everything back on like msn messenger etc and i installed yahoo messenger agian, now for some reason it wont let me sign in, it says the following:-

"modem users(not me), make sure your online then try agian", and the it says, " lan/firewall users setup proxy if you know your settings."

Whys it saying that for, msn messenger works fine and so did yahoo before i reformatted my computer?

Thanks for any help guys

have you looked at the proxy settings inside yahoo options.

maybe they got switched on by mistake.

were you using 6 before you formatted?

maybe give that a shot.

7 is still in beta so it might be some bug.
