I downloaded some new web Cam software and then I finlly got iot working then 3days later my Windows Live mess jusr=t crapped out. I tried a repair, it did it not work, it got worse. So I decided to remove it and reinstall a new fresh version the Windows Live Web site did not allow me to download Messenger 9 again. It kept telling me the same :
"You already have this program", So I am unable to install it. Now I am with out My Web Cam and without my Messenger (I ready to scream) and another Microsopft Blunder, Too Busy helping Gates count his Money, So I did the Claen Install step by step to get another copy of Windows Live Mess 9... thank goodness My Outlook Express still works...

James said...

Okay I can sign in, and use MSN perfectly.

BUT

When I sign in I get an error report telling me to "Send" or "Don't Send"
I just hide this error report in the corner of my screen because if I "Send" or "Don't Send" it logs me out of MSN.
This doesn't bother me much but it screws up full screen games forcing me to play them windowed or else it lags like a PS3 on dialup.

PLZ HALP, IT'S VERY ANNOYING

I recently downloaded an upgrade, but now I don't get to use single webcams, only videocalls. I don't even get an options. As soon as I click on the webcam icon, it starts a videocall. Do you know how I can fix this without having to downgrade to a really old version? Thanks in advance. Good blog!

July 29 2010
To all the Users experiencing a lot of problems trying to download or reinstall the newest version of Windows Live Messenger... First of all : The Windows Live Messenger needs a "CLEAN INSTALL" "Add and Remove programs" from the control panel does not clean it enough.
This link below is what you have to use. Take care using it. but it will allow you to Erase and Remove the Old Messengers you used. Once you download and run his App. It will allow you to remove all the instances of the Windows Live Messenger. Live essentials and all
MSN's - ONLY !!!! Erase and remove them one by one. After that Restart and then you have done A Total removal - ready for your Clean Install. But again only the Windows Live, and windows Live Messenger and the MSN "ONLY"! TAKE CARE USING THIS ! Once you removed all Windows Live Messenger and/or MSN from You sys ten. Then it will allow you a CLEAN INSTALL, I had so many problems with WLM but it Noe works fine after I lost my MSN. Paste this Link in your Browser and Install it.

http://windowsinstallercleanuputility.com/

One you do the above MSN and the last Windows Live is Gone forever, Allowing you a brand New Install.
I know, I know windows should have installed this in your system and do it automatically, But Hey ! The Local computer shops need your Money too... But It takes a while to get used to it but Once the above is done in One Month of Chatting you forget about MSN. Note : Windows has removed this Utility fron their Catalog for the Dangers It Poses to unexperienced Users.

When I'm on msn, everything's okay accept my status appears as 'away' but it won't let me change my status to 'available' but it will let me change it to 'busy' and 'appear offline' I went on control panel and went on 'repair' and it worked, but a couple of days later, the same happened again. I went to repair it but it's not working. I don't want to uninstall msn just in case I won't have it anymore. What do I do? :/

I have the same problem. I tried to uninstall the windows live messenger from add/remove program but i cant find the windows live messenger. I guess re-installing the program might fix this.

I guess, some of the windows live components was infected with a virus and quarantined. when i removed my antivirus, the components got deleted.
