Uninstall it then remove its folders that are left over on the C drive.   Then open regedit and remove the yahoo folders from HKLM and HKCU.

 

Reinstall after downloading the full install. Get the direct url from someplace like nsanedown.com

I have the same problem. I have unistalled messenger then reinstalled it and it worked until windows did an update.  Sometimes it will work for a day or two and then when windows updates it quits again
