Yahoo Messenger "The All New Yahoo! Messenger" ~ Problems?
• Remember you need to have Macromedia Flash Player (at least v6, current version available is v7,0,19,0 released 22 April 04) so check that first.
If Flash is causing you some grief you may need to uninstall then reinstall, check out http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/remove_player.htm
• Try deleting the contents of....
then try to load the audibles again
• Audibles wont load?
Download Audibles.zip (2.5mb) unzip the file then cut and paste the contents across to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\cache\Audibles
The file above contains the contents of the cache\Audibles folder (as @ 24 Jule 04) as per the norm, virus scan before you unzip :)

try the direct approach instead by using the messenger build number
