  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Press Ctrl Alt Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab.
  3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation.
  4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list.
  5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system.
  6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window.
  7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before.
  8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed, reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

I deleted my old yahoo messenger from the computer and now i am trying to install a new one but its not working, every time i try to install it, it says(yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed...


the error message is clear, for some reason your computer is set to block the Yahoo messenger link.
here is what you can do: (for windows XP)
1. open Control panel
2. click on Security Center
3. click on Widows Firewall
4. click on the Exception tab
5. check if you have Yahoo Messenger there:
a. if not: click on Add and paste the follow: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
b. if it's there- make sure it is the same as C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
if it is the same- click on Delete to remove it and try to install again.

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.

Yahoo! Messenger is unable to download files needed for install


yahoo!7 messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please

check firewall settings and retry installation.
I found the answer its so simple, The problem has nothing to do with firewalls.

Yahoo instant messenger (yim) needs internet explorer 7 or above version to

enable yim to operate properly with the current yim versions. If you have an

earlier version of IE (I was using IE 6 coz I always use firefox and did not

have windows update enabled coz I did not want my windows operating system to be

revealed as it was copied and theredore not legit) So I disabled windows update

and kept using firefox, but even if you never use internet explorer, yim still

needs internet explorer 7 to operate without these errors shown above. I tried

to fix it for weeks thinking it was fiewall or such, but it just needed IE 7 so

I downloaded it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/internet-explorer-7-details.aspx
and even tho it says its for a windows server it still worked on my windows

XP pro 64bit and now yim is working properly, allowing multiple copies of

contacts etc, no problems at all now. I also downloaded firefox version 35,

which helps yim too coz its yahoo preferred.

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.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
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

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
