Some firewalls have issues with installing Messenger, but disabling your firewall while online is VERY dangerous! Usually, by installing after downloading, the firewall will ask for permission to run the program.
Download and SAVE the program directly from the File Hippo web site - it seems more successful than an update or install from Yahoo's site, or even choosing to install by Run. I suggest saving it to your Desktop so it doesn't get 'lost'. Install it only AFTER completely cleaning the registry of remnants. Download the most recent version of any Yahoo Instant Messenger (highest number, top of its list)
If you use Internet Explorer 8 as your browser, Yahoo Messenger 10 will not work properly without Flash and Java programs also installed.Source(s): http://www.filehippo.com/download_yahoo_… (ALL versions) http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ (for Messenger 10, on IE 8) http://www.java.com/en/download/index.js… (for Messenger 10, on IE 8) http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messeng...

Your windows firewall is obviously the problem for the proper download.
Click Control Panel
Click - Windows Firewall
now --click the General Tab
CHeck OFF (not recommended)....for the time being
Download Yahoo! Messenger 10,
Now---- turn your Windows Firewall Back ON (recommended)
(same way as you turned it OFF).
REboot your system for changes to properly occur.
Best of Luck to You.
