These steps are according to Yahoo! Messenger with Voice (BETA).
Sign in to your yahoo messenger. Click Messenger >> Preferences
Then a pop up will appear on your screen.
At the left side, you will see the categories. Click on General.
Under "When I start up my computer:"
uncheck the box "Automatically start Yahoo! Messenger with Voice (BETA)"
