Please uninstall and re-install the Yahoo Messenger to resolve the issue. You can uninstall the Yahoo Messenger by opening Start Menu>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs or Uninstall a program (Windows 7).

The error message indicates your operating system is not able to load one of the files required for Yahoo messenger to work.
To make sure Yahoo messenger is installed properly, download the installation files and save them to your desktop.
Once you have the installation file...
Open the control panel and uninstall the existing version of Yahoo messenger. This will remove the program from your computer and clear out the registry entries that were created during the first install of Yahoo messenger.
Reboot your pc and then run the Yahoo messenger installation file you downloaded to your desktop.
The system reboot is a precautionary measure to ensure that none of the files used by Yahoo messenger are loaded into memory during the reinstall.
You can avoid the messenger problem a few ways: You can right click on the icon, and click "run as administrator," or, right click on the icon, and there should be a "run as administrator" checkbox somewhere. Worked for me.

Click on the Compatibility Mode tab
Check the box at the top to enable it and make sure the mode is Windows XP SP2.
