Are you using Vista OS? I believe that YM 9 for Vista is still under beta testing. There are bugs that needs to be fixed for this YM to work efficiently. Until all these minor problems are addressed by Yahoo, you will have to bear with this problem. I suggest you use the older version, that works better than the new one.

Unable to Install Yahoo! Messenger Firewall Issue or What?

The problem is with the Yahoo uninstall software which fails to clear the old Messenger folder out and creates conflicts with the incoming new software - Your firewall doesn't know whats happening and hoists a red flag. If you had not started to uninstall I would have recommend you download revo and uninstall with that.
bear this in mind if you manage to install messenger but still have problems
You have to go into your C drive and delete the left behind software
Click ( > ) Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >>Yahoo >> Messenger - if you have Vista the folder should be empty - if you have pre- Vista the only sub-folder remaining should be 'Profile' ( The message Archive file) manually delete everything except 'Profile' by right clicking and deleting. When finished restart your computer and finish the install

Unable to install yahoo msn

Check your internet connection, may be your connection encountered problems...always download from your trustful sources website. i think better you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you download yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger set up from downloading it.

Try these! Good Luck!!
