The problem you are facing is may be because of your Internet Explorer gets corrupted. Try another browser likes Firefox. Google chrome or safari to download the yahoo messanger. If its downloaded and installed from there then the problem is with your IE. Try to update or install Internet Explorer again.
If this does not work then try this. Make sure to enable window installer.
1. Type in the search folder services.msc and a window will open.
2. Scroll down to the window installer and check there
3. If it is disabled then enable it to manual and now try to download the yahoo messanger latest version.
Save the file on your hardisk and when the download finish run it and saty connected to internet. It will take time to Install.
