orientation of im messages?

Ok, so here it is. Yahoo IM was working fine, then recently it switched to where any time i post a new message or receive one it defaults the view back up to the top where the original message I received is located. Annoying and probably something real simple, I just can't figure out how to change it...

    You may have a corrupt file and need to un-install then re-install Yahoo Messenger. However, before you do that, let's consider the following and try several things first.

    1.) To run properly, Yahoo Messenger needs Sun Java, and the latest version of Adobe Macromedia Flash Player. Click on these links to make sure they are installed and up to date:

    Sun Java:

    Adobe Macromedia Flash Player:

    2.) You must have scripting enabled. To enable scripting:

    Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

    Click the "Security" tab.

    Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

    Scroll down to "Scripting."

    Enable the following:

    * Active scripting

    * Allow paste operations via script

    * Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

    Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

    3.) You may have too many programs running in the background draining your system's resources.

    Click on: Start

    Click on: Run

    Type: msconfig

    Click on: Startup

    Uncheck: All programs which you don't need starting up every time you reboot or restart your computer.

    4.) Only have one browser window open when you are on the Internet chatting through Yahoo Messenger and close all other applications you were using such as Limewire, Paint, Word, etc. because they ALL use up memory. Having too many programs and applications running will cause your Yahoo Messenger to lag or malfunction.

    5.) If (Steps 1-4) do NOT solve your problem, try un-installing then re-installing your Yahoo Messenger:

    How to un-install Yahoo Messenger:

    Close Yahoo Messenger

    Click on: Start

    Click on: Control Panel

    Click on: Add/remove programs

    Locate and remove Yahoo Messenger

    6.) Download Yahoo Messenger.

    If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, *click the link at the bottom:

    Yahoo Messenger for Vista:

    Windows Messenger 6.0:!/ymsgr_19...

    Windows Messenger 7.0:!/ymsgr_7....

    Windows Messenger 7.5:!/ymsgr_7.5.0....

    Windows Messenger 8.0:!/ymsgr800...

    Windows Messenger 8.1:

    Windows 9.0 Beta:

    *For about 20 other versions of Yahoo Messenger, click here:

    7.) If none of the above suggestions solve your problem:

    Here is a link to a Yahoo Messenger Help Request Form. Since they don't provide categories for EVERY problem or question type, pick one that fits as close as possible to your problem, making sure to go into a lot of detail when describing your issue(s) or asking a question:

    As a supervisor , I prefer if somebody calls to confirm that they are going to be on the orientation. Too often I even have arranged for the orientation and rearranged my schedule to discover that the guy would not coach.
