I can't install YM on a new Windows 8 computer

I have a brand new HP Envy Windows 8 all-in-one computer. I have tried multiple times to download and install YM - the latest version 11.5. It downloads but it does not install. I have followed instructions - tried re-starting the computer, turning off the firewall, closing all other programs but these things do not work, so please DON'T reply suggesting I do these things. Just tell me what WILL work. Thanks. Charles

SOURCE: I cant installe yahoo messenger because of a fire wall.

Try use Yahoo Messenger 9, the latest version. Before download yahoo messenger, make sure firewall allows your connection to download it. It shows that your PC protected from any harmful software because of your firewall. One more thing download your yahoo messenger only for trustful sources websites, it much better. i think you should check your firewall settings. Check also your Windows Firewall. I think there are some problems in your firewall settings. It may be blocked your yahoo messenger from downloading it into your PC. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to install yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. I think this tips can be help you a little bit.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: i've already downloading the latest yahoo

hi, it may be due to low bandwidth problems yahoo just gives u a small installation file, and tries to install the rest of the messenger program by downloading them when required, after all the files are downloaded, ur installation is completed. if ur net gets disconnected, or yahoo server lags(very rare case, but happens), then u lose all that u have downloaded..simple way is always try to download from, when it comes to yahoo messenger, as that site provides a full fledged messenger, without the need for downloading before installing..

Is an HP ENVY 6-1010us Sleekbook linux compatable?

Get the ndiswrapper program so you can use your Windows wireless driver on Ubuntu. It'll work. First connect to your ethernet port. Use Synaptic Package Manager and begin typing your search for 'ndiswrapper'. Checkmark it for installation.r+avycqxphsdhnqaaaaasuvork5cyii=
