Windows 7: Live Messenger problem with Windows 7 RTM

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

Live messenger works fine for me in 7600 so it's not a Windows problem.

To delate it and start over again you need to uninstall the Windows Live essentials, Windows live Upload Tool and the Windows Live sign in assistant. After that I would redownload the program and reinstall.

Essentials - Windows Live
I've tried that and it just says Messenger is already instaled and gives me the option the install the others windows live applications. Hmmm. :/

I found this tip:

1. Press the Windows button on your keyboard, or launch the Start Menu using your cursor.
2. Tipe "Run"
3.In the prompted box, enter "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove".
4. Press the Enter button on your keyboard, or click "OK."
5. When you are prompted and asked to restart your computer, click "Yes."

Edit:

You could try the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility too:

It came back with Error: could not locate INF file.

I got it working with no problem, Ive gotten that error before when their servers were down. However once you get it working make sure you log-out and go to the actually executable file for messanger in the c: drive and change it to vista compatibility mode. If you do not do this when you hide the window it will not go to the bottom right.

It's working fine on my laptop and desktop running Windows 7 7600.16385. WLM version 2009 build 14.0.8064.206. The error indicates that something has stepped on module msxml3.dll. The easiest way to fix it would be to search for this file (c:\Windows\System32) and delete it. Then re-install Live Messenger. You just need to make sure you are using the correct version of that module. Mine show file version 8.110.7600.16385.
