SOURCE: yahoo messenger 9 on vista
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.
Hope this helps

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

Testimonial: "I was able to figure it out myself. I just went to Internet Option>Conections Tab>Lan Settings>Uchecked the Proxy Settings then OK. Now its working."
Simply close the Firewall for little moment till installing the YM files.Go here Control Panel> Windows Firewall>click Off(not recommended)
Try now. Good Luck
