SOURCE: my yahoo Id and massenger id
If you forgot all information there will be another way to reset your password that is through alternate email address which you provided during registration...
Go to http://edit.yahoo.com/forgot
select any of the first two options (I forgot my password / My password doesn't work )
see the image below... clicking on Next button the page will redirected to below showing page...
put your ID correctly in the box and as well as captcha codes as showing in image...
click Next it will ask you information...see below image there are some short hint's on right side of the alternate email address box to find your alternate email address which linked with this account for password resetting purpose....
if your alternate email address is right press Next , it will go for next page like below
I think this will help you to reset your password and get your ID back....

You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.
The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.
If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.
Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.
Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
