Dear TechyV helpful and nice people out there,

I am using Windows Vista and I have a solid rig. Today when I opened Yahoo Messenger I get the error "999 – Unfortunately, we are unable to process your request at this time". This whole day I was unable to use my Messenger which cost me several appointments. In am infuriated with this incident.

Please if anybody knows what is causing this problem, please tell so, If I don't fix this soon I might switch to Skype. And I have to import all my contacts which is A…..Lot of work.

Thank you for your help. God bless TechyV.

Error “999” is a runtime error that internet users who subscribe to any of the Yahoo services; mail, messenger, groups, news, etc. may possibly encounter at any point of time. Often, this happens while opening up any of the services mentioned and you’re hailed with the error message with an accompanying statement, “the service cannot be accessed at the moment, please try again later”.

To remedy this error you may try to do the following steps: first, open Internet browser and clear out the cookies and cache files. To do this, sequentially click on the following commands: "Tools", "Clear Private Data" in FireFox, "Tools", "Temporary Internet Files" in Internet Explorer, "Safari" in safari, "Preferences" and then "Internet Cookies." Second, turn off Proxy Server, if connected. Otherwise, skip this step.

If the above two steps cannot solve the issue, you can try downloading a different browser. A FireFox browser may do or an Internet Explorer or Safari through the Resources section. Lastly, start on the new browser and connect it back to the Yahoo! Service you want. Hopefully, it will load without any concerns. Thank you!

Dear Ruth May,

This error appears to be a "catch-all" error code that Yahoo serves up when it doesn't have a more specific error code. It essentially means "Oops! Something went wrong but we don't know what, so we'll just say that Error 999 occurred."
