Yahoo Messenger 9 does not connect - Vista

I had an older version of yahoo messenger (7) running
happily on my machine. While I was hunting for reasons
why 9 would not always connect on my machine, despite
checking a lot of other reasons such as firewall config etc.

I think the eventual solution is by not doing a typical
install and NOT installing the yahoo toolbar. This has
solved the problem for me.
