Hello, i have a fix for this issue. make sure that the default browser is installed and running correctly on your pc. if you know its installed go into internet options and select make default browser and click apply.



This is a fix only if you have installed a new web browsing application but did not select it to be your default browser.

    I just now fixed this problem in my laptop. This happens if u download any other Internet Browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and uninstalled it. follow these steps to fix it..

    >Open Internet Explorer >Go in Tools

    >Internet Options >Program Tab

    >Under 'Default Web Browser' Click on 'Make Default' Button

    >Tick on 'Tell me if Internet Explorer not the default web browser'

    >Apply

    >OK .

    This should solve the Application not found error in programs such as Yahoo Messenger, etc. Basically this error is because Internet Explorer is not your Default Browser

Uninstall previous YM than when you install again change the name of the destination directory ( ex: C:Program FilesYahoo2 ) ...it works for me.
