According to Cerulean there was a bug in previous versions of Trillian connecting to Yahoo servers. Their bog post (http://blog.ceruleanstudios.com/?p=268) suggests upgrading to the newest version of their software to fix this issue.

I installed it through the link you sent me, but nothing has changed.
I have single yahoo account and im trying to add MSN contacts.
But after adding them i cannot send or receive from/to the MSN Contact.

When i add a contact, and try to specify the medium for the contact, i can only choose Yahoo as the meduim; when i try to add msn (there is no online connections) shows up.
and if i add the MSN contact as a Yahoo meduim, they dont communicate !!!!
I just need to add MSN Contacts even if we use YAhoo as the only account, as i cannot force our clients to create MSN accounts to add msn contacts or Vise Versa....

Is there a solution to this??

The other option is to uninstall your current version of Trillian and reinstall the newest version.  Do the same with your Yahoo and MSN IM's.  Once you've done that, you should have no problems.  I use Trillian at work and never have had problems entering user id's from yahoo, msn nor aim.... I do not use ICQ, but I am guessing that will be just as easy.
