Question about Yahoo Messenger
Yahoo! Messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation."
What should I do?
Need some help..
Disable your firewall and try again..to to control panel to disable it

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.

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.
