I want downlod yahoo messenger

If your problem is simply wanting to download Yahoo Instant Messenger, then go to and click the large yellow Download Now button for the most recent version (Version 10) of Yahoo Instant Messenger. It will ask you to save the .exe file (save it somewhere where you'll remember where it is, like your desktop). Once saved, go to where you saved it, double-click the file name, and the installation of the program will begin. Best of luck!
