    OK, got it working in case anyone else is interested. Have to go to windows explorer, c: drive, program files x86, yahoo, messenger, right click on the exe, choose properties, for all users, compatibility win8, run as admin, apply, ok, apply, ok and it's working now.

    RIP Yahoo! Messenger...

    Yahoo! Messenger is going to shut down on July 17, 2018.

    After July 17, Yahoo Messenger will be discontinued and will no longer be supported by the company.

    They are building an invite-only group messaging app called "Yahoo! Squirrel" which is currently under beta stage.
