seems like your Firewall setting is blocking YM from downloading the installation file from Yahoo!. Are you using a third party firewall program, or just Windows Firewall? in both cases, you may have to turn off the firewall prior to installing ym. Dont forget to turn it back on after installation

SOURCE: file download problems
This could be a possible that you have set the firewall to block some download and pop-ups on a certain port.
better to re-configure again your firewall settings again to do so..
Anyway if you want a YM exe and not to download it, I have here which you don't have to download the installation, and all you need is to install it and use it.
Let me know here again.

The issue lies in the Firewall settings. The Windows Firewall has blocked the Application from connecting to Web Servers. You must have to unblock it to get the problem resolved. If you have a Anti-Virus Firewall, reconfigure it, this will erase the Firewall's rules and will ask again that do you want the application from connecting to internet. You allow it and then it can download.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Simply close the Firewall for little moment till installing the YM files.Go here Control Panel> Windows Firewall>click Off(not recommended)
Try now. Good Luck
