Chances are, the error you are receiving is:
Missing msvcp71.dll or Missing MSVCR dll
You'll have to replace the missing file in order to use the Yahoo Messenger.
Your options - IF you have windows you can extract the file from
I have the file copied ( because this is so common)
and would be happy to forward it along. You'll have
to have a WINZIP program to unzip the file extract
it and then DELETE YAHOO MESSENGER IN ADD/REMOVE
PROGRAMS - AS WELL AS ANY DESKTOP ICON OR SHORTCUT.
THEN, REINSTALL YAHOO MESSENGER. WITH THE MISSING DLL
FILE NOW REPLACED, YOUR MESSENGER WILL BE FINE....
HOPE IT HELPS!!
