Hi there,
  • Click Start Menu.
  • Click on Control Panel.
  • Under "Programs" click on "Uninstall a program".
  • Find Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable and uninstall it
  • Uninstall Windows Live
  • Download the Visual C++ 2008 redistributable and the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Service Pack.
  • Reinstall Windows Live Messenger
  • Install it.
  • Reinstall Microsoft Visual Basic C++ Redistributable 2008 and 2008 (SP1)
Hope this helps,
Captain
