Is your firewall enabled? Perhaps the port for MSN, AIM, etc. is open but not for Yahoo... Its probably a long shot but would be an easy fix if it is the problem.

I have tried to fully stop my firewall but nothing happened, I always open the yahoo and msn ports from my modem (router).

This can be fixed by changing the port from 5050 to 20
