SOURCE: cant dwonload yahoo messanger

Are you using your personal PC/laptop or you are trying to download and install through your company's network? Some companies won't allow you to have administrative rights in the PC/laptop they assigned to you.. You can contact your helpdesk for that matter.
However, if it is your PC/laptop, be sure that the account you are using have administrative privileges or "administrator" account. You can check that on the Control Panel and go to user accounts.

SOURCE: yahoo messanger installation

ok my friend i think now we can see there is a problem communicating between your computer (the installed program) and the yahoo server

so lets try these steps

first you can try this simple step and install yahoo again see if it going to work
go to start and in the search bar (lower left side of the list) type CMD (dont hit enter or anything just type it)
you will see on the left top side there is CMD and the icon is black
right click on it and select run as administrator and click continue when windows is asking to cancel or continue

now type in the black window

netsh firewall reset

hit enter

now close the window and try to install

if not working then you will have to disable the firewall, windows defender and all the security programs

that should solve the issue.

if you have any further question feel free to ask

dont forget to rate my answer :)
