    I have the same message when I try to reinstall YM on my Notebook. It was working the night before. Last thing that I remember was I removed the Norton internet security 2006 trial that came with the computer using nortong removal tool. After I removed norton the yahoo messenger no longer pulls up as it always does when the desktop loads. I already tried disabling the windows firewall. I also tried downloading the installer for ym but it seems to get stuck after I click on the next button in the end user license agreement screen during installation. Please help.

It's firewall problem, I suggest to stop or disable your anti-virus software like Norton while setup download is in process, enable it again after succesfull download.

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.

File download problems


Hi there,

This could be a possible that you have set the firewall to block some download and pop-ups on a certain port.

better to re-configure again your firewall settings again to do so..

Anyway if you want a YM exe and not to download it, I have here which you don't have to download the installation, and all you need is to install it and use it.

Let me know here again.
