Yahoo messenger dos not install in xp due to firewall

I cannot install yahoo Messenger in XP because it tells me the firewall is on. I went in and turned the firewall off.

The download then tells me that the firewall is still on.

What can I do to fix this? :pfff:

  4. Do you have another anti-virus of firewall program running? Norton, etc...?
  5. No I don't. I am no longer interested in using YahooIM. But I would still like to know so that I can fix it for other items however.
