Am trying to download and being told there is problem with the firewall

You should check your firewall. It's in the control panel under windows firewall.Or, Try downloading the full installer of Yahoo Messenger (see link below) and save it to your desktop. It comes directly from a yahoo server and by-passes the web installer that most use and some have issues with (though often they can be avoided) on Windows Vista right click the full installer and choose “Install as Administrator”.…

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.

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;
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 # . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here.
