Application not found yahoo messenger


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 click on Messenger on the left hand side and reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

When I tried to install yahoo messenger, before the end of the instalation appeared one message telling - CANNOT LOAD RESOUCE DLL

Try uninstalling and reinstalling yahoo messenger again, but if this doesn't work, you might want to try a DLL repair tool so that it can find the actual problem you are having. After this yahoo messenger and any other similar program should work fine.

Here is a link to a DLL repair tool you might want to try.

I can not reinstall yahoo on my new computer though i have used yahoo in the past

try this one.may be this can help.
You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the Messenger directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

To delete the directory:

Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Click the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. Please see below.)
To install:

Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
Click the "Download Now" button.
To copy your complete Message Archive:

Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Select the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles.
Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it elsewhere.
Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer to which you are copying.
