you are using old version of yahoo messenger..
you need to uninstall the version from add and remove program and install latest version 10
you can download the latest version from http://messenger.yahoo.com
Go to start button, control panel, Programs-uninstall programs. Click Yahoo Messenger. Click uninstall. Then go to http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/ and re-instal the latest version following all instructions. If it still does not work after that, you may need to install some updates for flash players, but the Messenger instal will tell you that this is the case, and will direct you to where you can get those updates/programs.
Having the most recent Java application will ensure proper communication between Internet Explorer and the Messenger application. Please follow these steps to uninstall and reinstall your Java runtime environment.

If I am right, your yahoo messenger has not that feature. I would suggest you to simple download the U.s. version and install it after uninstalling the currently installed.
You can download the latest u.s. version from this link, works for any country.
Yahoo messenger 10.0, u.s. version
(Note: Don't forget to uninstall it before you reinstall the new version)
If you are in windows OS then press CTRL + ALT + DEL and click on process and then locate all yahoo process and then right click and click END PROCESS and also go to THIS LINK and click on download and then install it.
IF THIS IS ABOUT WINDOWS MESSENGER THEN
Problem: Windows Live Messenger Won't Start / Load / Launch / Open
I have this problem for a few weeks. Tried everything suggested by everyone who managed to fix their problems. None worked. I tried uninstall and reinstall but to no avail. Somehow if you upgrade it to the latest version, the problem solved.
I was desperate so I decided to go with an older version. Somehow my problem was solved. I can't guarantee it would work for you though.
1. Uninstall everything related to WLM from Control Panel 2. Download an old version from one of these sites (if you are the super-paranoid type and concern virus, try downloading it from Microsoft if it is still available):
3. Install the old version, but it won't work as Microsoft would insist you upgrade to the latest version.
4. Go with it. When the installation is done, WLM is back to normal.
5. I must add that my original problematic WLM was the traditional Chinese version, and when I upgraded/reinstalled I chose the standard English version. My windows is an XP SP2 Traditonal Chinese version.
So good luck to you all and hope that your end of frustration is in sight!
or use this solution 1. Kill all "msnmsgr.exe" process. 2. Run regedit (be carefull) and go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger 3. Select all the values on the RIGHT SIDE of this window. ie: (Default) REG_SZ (value not set) AppCompatCanary REG_SZ 8.5..... AppSettings REG_BINARY 6202.. ... 4. Delete only that selection and close regedit. 5. Run "Windows Live Messenger", enjoy!
