Question about Yahoo Messenger
It should not be necessary to adjust firewall settings.
If you have 'Speedbit' installed, lose it, (known conflicts with Yahoo)
Sounds like you may have tried to download without clearing out your browser or failed to check the Messenger file was empty before uploading your new messenger.
When downloading/uploading close all other programs.
I suggest you download and run ccleaner first before you proceed further. Run it through a couple of times - include "registry" from the left hand toolbar. Do not be alarmed at the amount of files you have to delete, especially if you do not clear it on a regular basis.
Use this path to uninstall and remove the old messenger software.
> Start > computer > local disc (C) > program files > yahoo > messenger > UNWISE.
UNWISE is the command that starts uninstall. Make sure the old messenger folder is clear before starting to download - I run Messenger 9 with no problems although I read here its "full of bugs," that's because its not been installed cleanly. Yahoo tell us its the best one to operate behind a firewall.
Check in the Messenger file after uninstalling to make sure no fragments of software remain that will create conflicts with the incoming software.
