Hi kja2 ,

2 anti-virus software can not co-exist on a computer system ; therefore you did the correct thing by uninstalling the old anti-virus first . However , there are lots of anti-viruses which do not get deleted (uninstalled) by going to Start > control panel > Add/Remove program. These anti-virus have to be removed by special "uninstallers" . I do not know which Anti-virus you have on your system , therefore I will provide you with the link of most common anti-virus uninstallers :

Trend Micro:

once the antivirus is removed through the uninstaller , then try installaing the new anti-virus which was giving you "files corrupt" message ... it will then work fine.
Also , . I would like to suggest you a very good anti-virus which you can download free of cost from internet :

Goodluck :-)

Error 0 about blank

An "Error 0" from Avast Anti-Virus is more than likely a corrupted download. Try downloading a fresh copy of the installer from the Avast website.
Also make sure you are logged into a computer account which has administrator priveleges as this is required to install Avast.

Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe

·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.


CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

Click the link below to download Yahoo Messenger…

Click the "Download Now" button.

Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.


Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

Win 32 application error

Hello bigk157,

This may be happening due to a virus infection. Do a search for win32 virus on Google and you'll see what I mean. Try downloading a program like Malware Byte's Anti-Malware or Super Anti-Spyware and running a FULL (not quick scan, have some patience as it may take a while) scan on your computer. Follow prompts and remove infected files. You may end up removing an important win32 file windows needs to run, but since its been compromised you'll have to delete it. You can restore it and other system files by doing a "Repair Install" from your Windows Installation disc. You can find instructions on how to perform a Repair Install by searching on Google.

Note: Not a "Recovery Console" repair by pressing "R" before continuing with windows installation. Sometime these two things get confused for one another.

Hope this helps, if so leave me some positive feedback. Thank you.

When i click my drive, disk is shows access in denied.

Hi there,
You seem to be suffering from a Trojan horse. you need a good anti virus to scan the drives of both your computer and the external hard disk, I recommend Avira Personal. this links to a free download package. if avira does not install then you need to restore the computer to the date the operating system was installed or do fresh installation. Avira can only be installed over the internet. the virus has secured the flies and folders. you can either change the ownership of the folders and files or you run corrupted recovery for your data. i recommend you use "bad copy pro " from jusoft you can download it from
try it and believe me it will work.

My yahoo want download on pc

Any chance your computer is running a Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7? From the Internet Options lower your security and allow to surf Protected Mode : Off.
Another way is to installl Mozilla Firefox and use this browser to download Yahoo Messenger.

Other tips that might help (you may try these first):
  1. Clear your browser's cache.
  2. Disable any download accelerators and download the Yahoo installer again.
  3. Update any active anti-virus and download the Yahoo installer again.
  4. Disable any active anti-virus and download the Yahoo installer again.
  5. Download the installer from another source. It might be corrupted on the server, or the connection to the server is unreliable. Or better yet, try it on a different day and time.
  6. Download the installer using another computer and copy it to the original computer using a reliable medium.
Hope this helps.
