It is possible that someone has accidentally uninstalled Yahoo! Messenger.
Try going to My Computer > C:/ > Program Files > Yahoo! > Messenger and here look for an icon of a smiley face :) that reads Yahoo! Messenger. Try to open that. If it doesn't work or if it's not there someone messed with your files.
In which case go to Yahoo.com click on Messenger on the left hand side and reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.
Use Yahoo Messenger for voice-chat, conferencing, chat and a host of other communications options. It's even possible to send important documents to your contacts using Yahoo Messenger without having to send an email.
