I have gotten this issue several times being a tech for the HP notebook division and I found a simple solution for it.
Right Click on the Yahoo! Messenger icon on the desktop and select properties.
Click on the Compatibility Mode tab
Check the box at the top to enable it and make sure the mode is Windows XP SP2.

The only thing that worked for me was to do the following: Click START click CONTROL PANEL click ADD AND REMOVE PROGRAMS scroll to Yahoo Messanger, click on it, and it should have a option to repair.
