How to download and install Yahoo Messenger in Windows computer

Many people are having problem downloading and installingYahoo! Messenger. Actually this isn't a difficult task, but there are still many computer users who are not very familiar and having problem downloading thecorrect version. In this tutorial I would tell you how to download the Yahoo! Messenger U.S. Version (applicable to all latest versions).

Follow this link (Click Here), once the page isopened, you'll see several menus as shown below:


This "Download Now" button will help you download the default yahoo messenger version depending on where you are at the moment (your current Location/Country). If you are in the U.S. no problem, simply click the "Download Now" yellow button to start downloading, but if you are outside the U.S. and would like to install the full featured U.S. version, scroll down the page and locate "United States", click it once:


and then click "Download Now" yellow button.


On the next page, once again click "Download Now"


Now save the file..

Internet Explorer:


Google Chrome:


Mozilla Firefox:


For easy to remember the download location, save it on your "Desktop". Wait for few seconds to complete the download. You can save it anywhere or to your default download folder, but don't forget the location so that you may not miss/loose the download. Google Chrome or Firefox will create a Download folder in the MyDocuments directory.

Now go to Desktop, locate the file "msgr10us" (or to the folder where it was downloaded)


(this name might be different, the downloaded version during this tips preparation is Yahoo! Messenger 10) and double-click the file and then "Run"


Once you click Run, another window will open up:


For faster installation and to make the least changes with my computer settings, I've deselected all the options (red circled) and then click "Next"


Now select "Yes, I accept the License Agreement terms andPrivacy Policy above, along with the Yahoo! Terms of Service at:"and click "Next"

Again click "Install"


Watch the screen while the installation is in progress and never click the "Cancel" button:



And finally after few minutes of waiting, you'll see ascreen like this:


Click the "Finish" button, your Yahoo! Messenger is successfully installed and will open up automatically.

This tutorial may not be important for many users, but mayalso be very helpful for many users as well.

Your comments are welcome.

Voice chat for Yahoo Messenger

Sounds like you don't have the trueSpeech codec installed
download it using the link given below and save it on your desktop:
right click on the downloaded VistavoiceFix.exe file and select Run as administrator and install it.
Reboot your computer to complete the installation.
Start messenger and go to chat room and try to do a voice chat..Should work fine..
tell me if that works.

Yahoo! has released some previews of its newly rebuilt Messenger application for Windows Vista. Yahoo! built this version of Messenger from the ground up, and uses pretty much all of features you are used to, but with a few little tricks. Features in the new Vista version include instant messages, voice, and video. Contacts from your Live Messenger can be added to Yahoo!, and you can see and interact with them as expected. Conversations can be organized with tabs through dragging and dropping. Of course there will be some added eye and ear candy with additional emoticons, sounds and interface customization. Yahoo! has a video preview of the Messenger application running in Vista, which you can check out here Pretty cool! Yahoo has been really going all out lately trying to steal back some market share, and I'm sure they will steal some with this rebuild. Good job Yahoo!

ITS NOT DOWNLODABLE From the Yahoo Site it will provide u a web installer for online installation.....

You can download it from link provided above & choose from the two version 9 Beta Or Vista Special Edi. ( But Remember Vista Spl Edi. Does'nt have Conference feature..

Hope This Helped you..

Downloading Programs with the new Windows Vista

You need a special version for Vista if it's not what you tried to install already. It can be found here:

Vista also pops up annoying prompts to confirm every system change, which may cause problems. This is caused by User Access Control, and I can walk you through temporarily disabling it if you can't get the above version installed straight away.
