Maybe it is a broken link? Tried downloading just about anything else? :thumbsup:
For example updated M$ installer? http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

If that does not work either, scan your computer for mallware/viruses and if negative, then ask your ISP if there is not any problems on his side. They will probably try to deny it, tough.

maybe the connection is intermittent, the latest beta of yahoo messenger is version 9 which is about 13mb. yahoo only provides a 300+kb download to their site, which after you run, will download the real installer. so if your internet connection cuts off during the download, the applet wouldn't continue downloading it and an error will occur.
