I have a solution for your problem You may find the said dll Click Here . And after searching please download this file because it will be need for your problem to be solve. 

Open the downloaded file extract it to this location on your computer. C:windowssystem32  But if you are using a 64-bit version of windows, you should place the file to C:windowsSysWOW64 Overwrite any existing file and reboot your computer and Run the program and if it still occurs. Click start and then run and type this on the run regsvr32 "your .dll" and then enter. 

And then run the program again this will surely work now.

Most DLL Errors are caused by erroneous or corrupt window registry entries. There are programs that do not completely remove all entries when uninstalled.  When DLL error is caused by uninstalled programs, it means that a program needed by a DLL file (in this case Yahoo messenger) or your operating system has been uninstalled or removed. Other causes of a DLL error are a corrupt file registry, a virus or spyware, malware or adware.

What you should do when the DLL error has been caused by missing DLL file is to go to the Microsoft Window option to restore your operating system back to the earlier date and start your computer back before the error occurred. This can also be used to solve other issues you may come across. Just go to the start menu, click accessories then Systems Properties and open System Restore then from there follow the steps provided to complete your system restore.

If the error is only specific to a certain program you are trying to access (in this case Yahoo Messenger)  the easier solution is just to reinstall the software. After that, check for any updates or patches that may have been created since your last installation. Another solution for that is to try replacing a missing file by reinstalling program to replace the file then uninstall again  and make sure you select  ‘NO’ or ‘NO to ALL’ when asked to delete files that may be associated with your operating system or program.

Hi dear,

The uninstaller works with regard to Vista and Win 7, but not for XP – this leaves behind MANY trash data files when uninstalling. (upon my XP there remained 32 remnants!) You may have missed several in your search for data files, deep in an computer registry.

Download Revo Uninstaller and also use it to be able to force uninstall Messenger – studied both the manual at first. It is going to first performed Yahoo's private uninstaller, then find and delete any kind of remnants.

One of the best Uninstaller software is the Revo Uninstaller. To download and install it, you can simply follow this tutorial:

After that download CCleaner and performed thesis cautious computer registry cleaner as a 2nd step.

It's one very handy software to maintain with regard to one-click removal on temporary files, both the cache, history, the Recycling Bin and leftovers on other programs also.

CCleaner download Optimization and Cleaning
