Simple tricks to fix the avatar issues
The Yahoo Messenger avatars are often used to display a picture with the user but some of them are encountering several problems with this function. One of the most common issues which occur while using the instant messaging client is that the avatars are not appearing at all even if the consumer selects a picture from his computer.First of all, there is one important thing that you should know and especially have: Macromedia Flash Player 6.0 or higher, a special software solution that helps Yahoo Messenger display the avatars. Supposing that you already installed Flash Player, here’s what you must do in order to fix the avatar issue:
Go over to the folder where you installed Yahoo Messenger (usually C:/Program Files), and look for the “Yahoo/Messenger/cache/Avatars” and “Yahoo!/Messenger/cache/Icon”” folders. As you can see, there are several files into these folders so all you need to do next is to delete all of them.
Please keep in mind that you have to close Yahoo Messenger before you remove the files and, after the entire process is complete, open the instant messaging client again.
