Hello

Strange thing I just got the same error in windows 7 64bit

I dont know what has caused it but I did a install / uninstall a few times with no luck, Ill have to try the long way of deleting items from my reg and ect in the next day or so but its nice to see im not the only one getting this error...

the only thing i can think has changed on my computer is set to automatic windows updates and I believe that adobe had a update as well yesterday

I also installed starcraft 2 when it came out 2 days ago but msn was working adter that

very strange

Hmm. That seems to have only worked temporarily... it worked fine last night for a few hours and stopped working this morning. Re-did the steps provided by Capt.Jack Sparrow and it worked again for two hours before shutting down and refusing to start up.

What steps should I take from here?

Hello,

Do you have any add-ons for Windows Live Messenger like Smileys, Games etc. If you have any uninstall them go to Programs and Features and check and see if you have any. Check this article for more assistance Windows Live Messenger is not Responding - Windows Live

Hope this helps,
Captain

No Iam not, I bought a brand new HP with Windows 7 and its doing it on there. Phoned HP and they got me to completely restore laptop to factory settings.

I have an older laptop that has windows Vista, so as I was so peed off with the new laptop went back to using old one and the MSN had been working fine, then same friggin message!!!! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! MSN made me update to the newer version and since then its happened. Please help cos I have a Dad in UK 78 and its the only way we get to "see" each other.

Shelley you should have started a new post as each one of these WLM problems is different.
Have you heard of Skype which is free statewide not sure of UK.
