Yahoo! Messenger Install Error

Last night tried to install YM (think version 7.5 ... not the voice beta) and got the error: 'Yahoo! Suite Installer encountered an error and needs to close'.

I DON'T(DIDN'T) have a previous version of YM installed. Several months ago I had YM installed (worked with no problem) but since then FDISKed my C: and re-installed Win XP Home SP2.

Have ZoneAlarm firewall and thought that was the pproblem (though it didn't cause a prob before the FDISK/Re-Win) so I stopped it and tried the YM install but got the same error.

Suspect I've set something in Win that precludes YM (or at least the install of YM).

Any help is appreciated.

(DELL 4300 Dimension, 1.6 GZ, 2 hd (20G & 120G), 512 M - 256m whne YM worked before, Win XP Home SP2 - was XP Home SP1 when worked before, and ZoneAlarm)
