Unable to install yahoo messenger - win 7

May 3, 2011 at 03:54:37
Specs: Windows 7
when i tried installing the yahoo messenger, at around 97% of installation, a popup comes "Windows cannot find yahoomessenger.exe. make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again". when i click "OK", it ask me for auto restart. After restart, i dont find the proper "Yahoo messenger" icon. when i click on the yahoomessenger.exe in the installation folder, it says that i dont have permission. I have adminstrator privilege and able to install all other applications. Pls help.

Note: Its my office laptop. Is this due to some security policy settings? even, it does not work if i use local admin users on my laptop. i tried all versions of yahoo messenger :(
