Win 7 RC. Legit Key.
Just like everyone else(except this is on all of my machines and just immediately happened) I'm receiving the error:
"Windows Live Messenger has stopped working"
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
My problem started yesterday while I was working. I opened up my laptop and my MSN IM's wouldn't open. I could highlight them but not bring them up. So I ended the process of WLM and then proceeded to re open it. I then received that error. The weird thing is. So I decide to TS into my work station and I turn on MSN, I get the same error. I needed to get some information from my brother at home and my cell doesn't work in our labs. I decided to mesh into my PC at home turn on WLM and I get the same freaking error!?!? I have spent some time trying to repair and uninstall etc.. so to verify this is on my end. I sign into Web WLM works fine. I then decide to open up my Virtual XP machine. I sign into regular MSN messenger, everything is ok there. I then download WLM to my VPC and sign in with out any issues....
I'm freaking stumped now. My settings on my WLM were to be signed into multiple locations, so I turned that off, changed my recent display picture tried to set all the settings to default. Turned off adobe from start up restarted my pc, repaired\uninstalled 2 times for msn. I'm about to try JV16 and remove it from my registry but I doubt that's going to help. I have a Home server so I think I'm going to revert my OS back to where I was really happy with it (since i messed up my USB by tring to change the Polling on Windows 7). I don't understand why all the sudden all my boxes are unable to use WLM! I need this for work! I use office communicator on our exchange server but I prefer not to give my alias to everyone so I like to use MSN as well.. Any help with this matter? I am going to try to find an internal site at Microsoft to see if they can get this issue resolved, but we'll see.
In eventvwr I don't know if this is the actual root of the cause, since this doesn't prompt every time I try to run WLM:
