Re: unable to install yahoo msn
Check your internet connection, may be your connection encountered problems...always download from your trustful sources website. i think better you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you download yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger set up from downloading it.

You can download it from this link. http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/win/. Note the location of your download, click on the downloaded yahoo messenger file and it'll again start downloading and will automatically install, just follow the onscreen instructions.. Good luck.
You need the following OS to support Messenger Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7 If that is not an issue read on.
The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading. If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder. If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall. Check Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.
If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.
Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
Is the download complete? If it is complete, you can try installing the application again. If it doesn't, try to identify if you have any programs in your PC that is blocking the installation of any application. These are anti-spyware applications or personal firewalls.
Or simply try downloading the YM again and re-install..
