You can avoid the messenger problem a few ways:
You can right click on the icon, and click "run as administrator," or,
right click on the icon, and there should be a "run as administrator"
checkbox somewhere. Worked for me.

My yahoo messenger on I phone 4 not working when I click on yahoo messenger a black screen comes what's wrong


Hey naeema426,
This is a known issue with Yahoo Instant Messenger and the iPhone 4. The most common solution is to remove the application and re-install it again. Sometimes when Yahoo installs it doesn't have the correct permissions to place the files where they need to go.
Here is a quick video to show you how to uninstall an application on the iPhone4


After you have successful removal of YIM re-download the app using iTunes or follow this official link from Yahoo.
Also make sure you have the latest version of YIM for Iphone 4. The newest version offers great new features like voice chat and video conferencing! Super cool! Here is a great website that will explain all of the cool new features of YIM for iPhone 4.
A Pleasure,
Vex

Firewall stops me using yahoo messenger


Uninstall or disable any security software running on your computer. Try restarting your computer in safe mode with networking and then installing. If all of the above doesn't works and still you were getting message for firewall then either disable your Router's firewall by opening Router's page or Bypass router for a while and connect directly to Modem and then Install.

Yahoo! Messenger is unable to download files needed for install


yahoo!7 messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please

check firewall settings and retry installation.
I found the answer its so simple, The problem has nothing to do with firewalls.

Yahoo instant messenger (yim) needs internet explorer 7 or above version to

enable yim to operate properly with the current yim versions. If you have an

earlier version of IE (I was using IE 6 coz I always use firefox and did not

have windows update enabled coz I did not want my windows operating system to be

revealed as it was copied and theredore not legit) So I disabled windows update

and kept using firefox, but even if you never use internet explorer, yim still

needs internet explorer 7 to operate without these errors shown above. I tried

to fix it for weeks thinking it was fiewall or such, but it just needed IE 7 so

I downloaded it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/internet-explorer-7-details.aspx
and even tho it says its for a windows server it still worked on my windows

XP pro 64bit and now yim is working properly, allowing multiple copies of

contacts etc, no problems at all now. I also downloaded firefox version 35,

which helps yim too coz its yahoo preferred.

Check out the Yahoo blog for the latest help on this subject ( 18 August 2009 )

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/08/18/help-with-sign-on-issues-in-yahoo-messenger-9-0/

My own advice is
1) Shutdown computer - power off the router for one minute - restart computer

2) Have more than one browser available for trouble shooting. Keep browsers up to date to incorporate all the patches - I run Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Keep one browser clear of add-ons and plug-ins.
Always have the browser you are using designated as default - even if you only have one

3) Download and run CCleaner daily - to keep your browsers fully operational

4) Make sure Yahoo toolbar is up to date

5) Sign in here to reset cookies
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify

6) If you have a Yahoo email address:- drop the '@Yahoo.com' from your username to sign in

7) Check the date and time are correct on your computer

8) If you have your settings to sign in automatically and recently changed your password check this out

9) Make sure your firewall has Messenger on the 'allow' list.

10) Set your status in Yahoo Mail to 'Offline'

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.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
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
