I freshly installed Yahoo messenger on my Windows XP machine. Installation was successful but I encountered some issues. When I try to click the email notification on the system tray, I got this error message also  same as when I click the View Profile option under the menu on Yahoo messenger:  

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel".
