Hi,
Yahoo! Messenger for Vista can be downloaded from Yahoo! site, but it’s a small initial setup loader that also include annoying features such as Yahoo! Toolbar. To directly download the standalone installer package which can also be used for offline installation, use the following link.
ymsgr_vista_setup.2008.01.11.428_us.exe




Hope this helps

SOURCE: Unable to Install Yahoo! Messenger Firewall Issue or What?

The problem is with the Yahoo uninstall software which fails to clear the old Messenger folder out and creates conflicts with the incoming new software - Your firewall doesn't know whats happening and hoists a red flag. If you had not started to uninstall I would have recommend you download revo and uninstall with that.

bear this in mind if you manage to install messenger but still have problems
You have to go into your C drive and delete the left behind software
Click ( > ) Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >>Yahoo >> Messenger - if you have Vista the folder should be empty - if you have pre- Vista the only sub-folder remaining should be 'Profile' ( The message Archive file) manually delete everything except 'Profile' by right clicking and deleting. When finished restart your computer and finish the install

Hi there, I can't download yahoo messenger. And when i do it does not work and crashes when i tried to open it. Thankyou.


There may be a problem with your firewall/antivir or just the installation (if you got win vista/7)

I suggest you deinstall it, and reinstall it as administrator (right click on the installation file, and open it as an administrator). While you're doing that, disable your firewall and antivir, you can re-enable it after the installation.

After you're finished, start the messenger only as an administrator (win vista/7), you can save that option in the settings of the .exe file.

this should do the trick, I wish you a nice day, and give me some thumbs up ;)

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.

Firewall stops me using yahoo messenger


Uninstall or disable any security software running on your computer. Try restarting your computer in safe mode with networking and then installing. If all of the above doesn't works and still you were getting message for firewall then either disable your Router's firewall by opening Router's page or Bypass router for a while and connect directly to Modem and then Install.

Am trying to download and being told there is problem with the firewall


You should check your firewall. It's in the control panel under windows firewall.Or, Try downloading the full installer of Yahoo Messenger (see link below) and save it to your desktop. It comes directly from a yahoo server and by-passes the web installer that most use and some have issues with (though often they can be avoided) on Windows Vista right click the full installer and choose “Install as Administrator”.

I cant installe yahoo messenger because of a fire wall.


Try use Yahoo Messenger 9, the latest version. Before download yahoo messenger, make sure firewall allows your connection to download it. It shows that your PC protected from any harmful software because of your firewall. One more thing download your yahoo messenger only for trustful sources websites, it much better. i think you should check your firewall settings. Check also your Windows Firewall. I think there are some problems in your firewall settings. It may be blocked your yahoo messenger from downloading it into your PC. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to install yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. I think this tips can be help you a little bit.

Good Luck!

Yahoo messanger installation


Problem:
"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation"

Solution:

Hi,

I tried to solve this. I went through alot of forums. I uninstalled Yahoo messenger and tried installing new one. I downloaded and pressed "Run as an administrator" when i got this response

"Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation Please check firewall settings and retry installation."

I did the following:
Turned of Windows Firewall( Search )
Uninstalled Yahoo messenger
Downloaded New One
Used CCLEANER to clean the computer. Download CCLEANER from www.filehippo.com

Then I checked INTERNET EXPLORER:

Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings -> Click on Automatically Detect Settings (Unclick everything else except this option) ->Apply -Ok

Check if www.yahoo.com opens in Internet Explorer.

Now Install Yahoo Messenger.
It should work.

Thanks
