    unable to download yahoo messenger as it says check fire well settings

    I have the same problem from this post.
    I tried several times with the standalone version, but it still stops at 99%, with a GLB.tmp process "eating" almost 50% from CPU. At least once, I let it for hours and nothing happened.
    Of course I tried both with executable followed by online installation and with the standalone application as I said before. Several times, between the instalations, I cleared all the traces of yahoo from registry, but the same result. Instalations stop at 99% with that GLB.tmp process eating CPU, which seems to work (something) but never ending.

    Hi
    I have also faced the same problem, in all conventional way I can't install Yahoo Massenger 9....x on my XP-pro service pac-3. last night I saw that my massenger is not responding. I tried to install again and failed to do that in all different way some times it stops to install at 99% some times when standalone installation stops at system configaration step at the last point. I tried even after regedit function, clearing all the yahoo lines.


    any resolving suggestion is appreatiated at this end.

Yeah it been a problem for so many others like you, check out this official solution at YMessBlog
But I recommend to you install a standalone version ;
A standalone version is a full complete installation of Yahoo Messenger ,which doesnt connect to internet for further installation of the software.
So download the latest Yahoo Messenger from here at softpedia


Hope that helps !!

I want to instal the yahoo messenger


Hai, Click to Download Yahoo Messenger! File Size 14MB ------------------ File Name
ymsgr900_2162_us.exe ------------------ You may have to disable any antivirus or firewall temporarily while installing as some programs can disrupt certain installs as they block the actions of the installer program (which can sometimes be changing system files like a virus would) or an antivirus attempts to scan new files created "on the fly" which slows down the install to a crawl.
Remember to turn everything back on once done!

Yahoo Messenger 9 Vista Installation Problems


Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/10/27/installing-90-on-windows-vista/

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
