The above yahoo messenger error is caused by an outdated d2d1.dll.  To update your d2d1.dll simply go to windows update and install the optional compatibility updates.  I do not recall which exact one includes the d2d1.dll update but it’s one of those.  I hope this helps someone.

Update (8/6/2011): There may be more to this error than a d2d1.dll update.  However I have not seen it continue after doing all the optional compatibility updates.  If you have all the optional updates and are still experiencing this problem then please post a comment.
