    If you have Windows Vista OS then read below as well for troubleshooting during installation.

    DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION TIPS FOR Y!M

    Try downloading the full installer of Yahoo Messenger (see link above) and save it to your desktop. It comes directly from a yahoo server and by-passes the web installer that most use. If on Windows Vista right click the full installer and choose “Install as Administrator”.

    Vista users if still unable to install it, after you download the installer, you might have to temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn UAC on or off.

    CAN I CHAT WITHOUT DOWNLOADING YAHOO MESSENGER?

    Sure you can chat via Yahoo Messenger for the Web as well as in Yahoo! Mail now there is a chat feature. There will be no chat rooms though you can just chat with your contacts.
