Many people are having problem downloading and installingYahoo! Messenger. Actually this isn't a difficult task, but there are still many computer users who are not very familiar and having problem downloading thecorrect version.

This "Download Now" button will help you download the default yahoo messenger version depending on where you are at the moment (your current Location/Country).

and then click "Download Now" yellow button.
On the next page, once again click "Download Now"
Now save the file..
For easy to remember the download location, save it on your "Desktop". Wait for few seconds to complete the download. You can save it anywhere or to your default download folder, but don't forget the location so that you may not miss/loose the download. Google Chrome or Firefox will create a Download folder in the MyDocuments directory.
Now go to Desktop, locate the file "msgr10us" (or to the folder where it was downloaded)

Click the "Finish" button, your Yahoo! Messenger is successfully installed and will open up automatically.
