Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Messenger 10 will not complete the download process

I have tried to download the latest Yahoo! Messenger 10 about 5 times. It will not complete the download. It sits on the screen that says it is processing, but the "next" or "finish" buttons are never highlighted. I have let it sit for as long as 30 minutes. I have Windows XP with high speed internet connection, not dial up.

I also am receiving a message that says Yahoo Toolbar cannot set up.

You have solution in your question.
This is happening because of the Yahoo Tool bar
First step is, Uninstall the Yahoo toolbar from ADD/REMOVE programs list under CONTROL Panel
Next Step,
When you start Installing Yahoo messenger, check if it prompts you to install Yahoo toolbar as well, if so, uncheck the option and continue with the installation. the installation should go smooth and should let you install yahoo.
