Your firewall setting is not allowing the messenger to be installed.
If you have Win Xp default firewall on.
Then you can turn that off like this.
Goto Control Panel > a dialouge box will appear > on the bottom of this dialoge you will see few icons > Click "Windows Firewall" > Turn it off.

And if that is allready off, then your got some other 3rd party firewall on, (Probably your Antivirus software).
Open your AV main settings and find the firewall settings to be turned off.

Note: Turning off the firewall may be risky as it may allow malicious programs to enter your PC.
But its the need of the hour also.

If i was helpful, kindly do Rate!

A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
to disable firewall

  • Right-click on My Network Places
  • Select Properties
  • Double click Local Network Connection or Modem
  • Click Advanced
  • Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

Why i cant download yahoomessenger, help me pl


Sometimes proxy setting or the firewall or even the anti-virus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or anti-virus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10.

Why i cant open my yahoo.messenger..it always appear the troubleshoot.even my connection is ok...but the same cant open it?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Try re-installing the messenger and then check. If the problem still persists, Check for the firewall settings If that might be blocking the messenger to log on the internet. Firewall settings are located in the Control Panel settings (Or Windows Defender in Vista and Windows 7). Update me or feel free to ask if this didn't works.

Concerned.

4. click on the Exception tab
5. check if you have Yahoo Messenger there:
a. if not: click on Add and paste the follow: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
b. if it's there- make sure it is the same as C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
if it is the same- click on Delete to remove it and try to install again.

may be you are under security/firewall that block the site. try to contact your administrator. or simply try to use proxy or tunneling site like www.hidemyass.com

or try other web-browser like Mozilla firefox, ie, Google chrome, opera, make sure flash and other plug-ins are installed correctly.

try to set your internet security mid-low... try to turn off or configure your firewall/antivirus firewall software it may block the site.

YM already Installed, but unable to Open the application


You can try to uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall it again without any firewall enabled and without any antivirus on.

Sometimes these softwares block the full installation of the package.

Also before starting the new installation watch the task manager if there is still yahoomessenger.exe and if there is end process.

If again there is a problem with Yahoo, try to find the older version 8,0 and install it. Probably it will work without any problems...
