ok it's likely a conflict between Yahoo! Messenger's skinning engine and WindowBlinds. If you can, configure Windows Blinds program so it won't try to skin Messenger and set Messenger's skin to "Classic", which basically turns off the Messenger skinning engine. Click "Change Skin..." in the Messenger menu.

let me know if that helps

If it is just a matter of it being the skins, you might could try this:
goto startmenu

Run

Regedit

HKey_Current_User\Software\Yahoo\Pager\defaults

Under default you will see a key with the value:Indigo\indigo.xml
double-click that and delete the Indigo\indigo.xml and leave the value blank.

then goto:
HKey_Current_User\Software\Yahoo\Pager\Profiles
Locate the ID that you use and click it
After that you will see under your Profile Name a key called

(YBSkin)
select that key and look over and you will see two values

((VBSkinName)) double-click and delete the skin it has shown and leave value blank

((VBSkinned)) double-click and change its value to 0

After which Load Yahoo and it should no longer have a skin enabled
Selecting default to blank will make the skins revert to whatever skin your last logged in name skin was used .
i have tried that(taking off skin)^^ but it still froze

thats really odd its just a conflict im preatty sure there isnt much you can do about it. all i can think of is to use trillian which has AIM, ICQ, MSN and YIM all in one i love it. good luck tho and let me know if you find a fix.
