From another site:

Yes i have *Finally* resolved this problem.. its very easy!

go to C:
Program files
Yahoo then enter the folder of messenger..
next click on "Plugin_selector" it will open IE
then allow the pupop for active X.
once this is done, close the browser and open Yahoo Messenger. it will work properly after that.

How about the next post there:

That solution worked for me for like five minutes until I restarted and then it never worked since. However I have found the problem and the solution. If you have Hotfix for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (KB947864) uninstall it and you will find that you no longer have any problems. I by mistake installed this update before I even had Internet Explorer 7 how and why? I don't know must had just went to update and saw updates selected all and let it update without taking any notice. I got Internet Explorer 7 now anyway as I installed that to see if that would fix the problem never did. I suggest using Revo Uninstaller to uninstall the Hotfix for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (KB947864) as you can pretty mush use it for any program and remove every last trace of the program from your hard drive and registry. I hope this helps anyone else that is having this problem or will have it in the future as clearly Yahoo and Microsoft are not going to do anything about it as for what I have seen this problem has been around for like since 2006.

Since it only happens in one persons profile then it is probably a registry thing..

Look in the HKCU for yahoo messenger keys.. not sure how many would be there.. see if the are different from another users HKCU keys...

also.. look under that users application data and local data from c:\documents and settings (you will have to unhide them by showing system protected files)... see for yahoo directories.

I would just create a new user profile for the one thats not working.. has to be corrupt registry or something...  Just copy all the documents/favs/etc. over.  You will spend more time try to figure it out then it would be worth.
