see i'm signed into windows live but when i sign into messenger there it goes back to the UXcore.dll error



btw i did have messenger plus installed, but i deleted that including registries and all known traces of it. It never has been a conflicting problem with Messenger, I just can't for the life of me pin point when it stopped working because from time to time it goes unused for a few days. But i first noticed this on 21st of June and alls i had done since then is changed my icons that show on the taskbar (i changed those back just incase but obviously it wasn't that causing it).

Also you've noticed that i have custom taskbar etc. so i obviously have modded some .DLL's in system32 even though i can't remember there correct names at the top of my head i have tried reverting to all the default ones and then rebooting (as i keep originals as backups), but i never got any changes from the error.

Back to the plan B, we need to see what other programs you are running at start up. Please post up screen prints of your MSCONFIG and a list of currently running processes. Shoot me this privately if you prefer.

There's a problem recorded with Lifecam (webcam) software per here but it could be anything that hooks the messenger drivers. So especially look at webcams, video card, email, other messenger software and upgrade the drivers on all hardware from the manufacturers website (not MS update).

Another option might be to perform a clean install via a clean start up; but my gut feel is that this won't work for your scenario as we've pretty much reinstalled everything. Still keep it in mind. It's also occured to me that there is another cache of messenger related data that we could clear between install attempts (so add this to our current list and i'll add it to my batch file) %AppData%\Microsoft\MSN Messenger. This is the Microsoft Cache if we delete the entire folder it should rebuild (back it up first anyway). Keep this in mind if you attempt another purge and install.

Lastly and more of a double check - you are installing the latest version yeah?

I'll wait for your program list before continuing.

This guy reckons that the problem has to do with the MSI service being accessed. He says to install the reg patch and start the service. At the risk of breaking your installation service, give it a go.

net start MSIServer

Lol.. Early start. Have a coffee... when you get back could you please screen print the STARTUP tab of MSconfig, sorry if I wasn't clear before.

There they are mate, I should tell you just incase that i have tried disabling all of this through MSconfig other than Microsoft processes and still got the problem. So maybe it is to do with a microsoft product or file?

So all that's left here is to disable
ESET Smart Security (yep even this for testing purposes)
Java Updater
Rocket Dock
CursorFX
Google Update
rainmeter
Yahoo! Widgets
and..... Windows Live Messenger

then reboot and start messenger manually.

What we're not checking here is any registry autorun's or programs that start with their own services.

Also start up your COM+ System Application service. i've com accross more than one program that play's-up when it's not running.
