Apart from yahoo messenger, are you able to browse the internet and check emails fine , or in other words is the internet connection fine

Are you behing any proxy ?

Have you tried to uninstall yahoo messenger and install the latest version of the same ?

Make sure your firewall is not blocking any ports which yahoo messenger uses
