Sign out from Yahoo Messenger, navigate to Start, type cmd and open the utility using Administrator rights. Type the following commands and press Enter after each one:

  • rd "%AppData%\Yahoo!\" /s /q

  • rd "%ProgramFiles%\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache\" /s /q

  • rd "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache\" /s /q rd

  • "%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache" /s /q

  • rd "%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache" /s /q

After that, close Command Prompt and reboot your computer.
