I suggest you download Ashampoo-UnInstaller from
and try to uninstall yahoo by this software and then re-install your yahoo messenger, I hope it fix.

But if this software couldn't help you, I suggest you to delete yahoo messenger manually (goto C:\Program files) and delete Yahoo messenger folder manually and try to re-install your yahoo messenger.

Good luck

    I click on the yahoo messenger icon, but it dosn't open, what may be wrong.

    It is possible that it is running in your taskbar (bottom right-hand of screen). If so, double click this smaller icon to open the window. If not, try uninstalling and reinstallnig Yahoo Messenger.
