Re: yahoo will not finish installing
This is a ambiguous error with the new Y! Messenger 9.0 as stated by the messenger team here: http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/01/20/trouble-installing-yahoo-messenger-90/ . I would just go download 8.0/1 or even better go with open source and get Pidgin ( http://www.pidgin.im/ - great piece of software). The messenger blog says they need contributions into fixing the issue. Good luck.

Hello edfinfo, I'd be happy to help! I myself have had many other applications do this same thing to me. To hopefully resolve this issue, I would advise you to start completely fresh by un-installing and then installing your application again. First, you should un-install your application. After you're finished doing that, then you should use the file searcher (this is accessible [on windows] by selecting the start bar, then in the list that pops up, you would select "search") to search for the ghost files of your application (Ghost files are the leftover files stored on your computer after an un-install of an application. Ghost files are usually the cause of a reinstalled application's freezes, crashes or more). Now a window should appear should appear asking you the enter the name or keyword of a file. You should then type in that searcher the name of you messenger (yahoo messenger). When the search is finished there should be a few files, that read yahoo messenger, or something very similar/associated to the program name (yahoo messenger). If there are any files (if there aren't any files you should just resort to re-installing your application), you should select them and then completely delete them. Once your are finished with that, you can then re-install the application and you application should then run properly from there. I really hope this helps!!
You didn't write that which operating system you using....but this error comes maximum in vista...it is related with Windows Resource Protection (WRP)...which use to keep your system file protected and secure....may be any of the file in SxS folder is corrupted or incorrect version.... You can try running sfc.exe(system file checker tool) to fix this....If you using vista, run your pc as an administrator and run cmd as an administrator as well. Type sfc /scannow and type Enter....while it running don't do other work on pc....it may take some time...be patient .....this command will scan all the protected system files, find out the incorrect version or corrupted version and replace with correct/suitable version....once you finish restart your pc and try install Yahoo messenger.
If you are a XP user, run your pc in Safe mode.and put the same command in cmd...and after finishing install yahoo messenger... I think this suggestion will help you to fix your issue... Thanks for joining Fixya... Good Luck
Hello, that issue is not caused by the yahoo messanger, it caused by your internet connection, and it mostly an issue on Yahoo messanger 9.0 so i would advise you uninstall it and install version 8.4 because it doesnt request good internet speed to load
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.
