« on: 18. December 2007., 03:54:42 »
I just got my new computer, Vista, & my MSN (windows live messenger) hasn't really been working right, i removed it & downloaded it again but nothing.

Hi Yummie.

Welcome to SCF Community!

Don't worry We will try resolve this soon as possible! 

First try to Repair your Windows Live Messenger with this instruction:

Repair Windows Live Messenger

Some problems may require you to repair Windows Live Messenger.
To repair Messenger:
In the notification area on the taskbar (near the clock), click the Messenger  icon, and then click Exit.
On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
Under Currently installed programs, click Windows Live Messenger, and then click Change.
Click Repair.

Second try to Turn Off DEP with this instruction::

Disabling Data Execution Prevention (DEP)

Run a command prompt as administrator. From the start menu, select "All Programs", then "Accessories" and right-click on the "Command

Prompt" shortcut and choose "Run As Administrator". From here you can use the following command to disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP)

with the following command:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

Keeping your command prompt open, run your setup or other process being stopped by DEP. Then, to turn it back on again, do the same and

run the following:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Restart your PC (After turning DEP off) to start Windows Live Messenger.

If this doesn't resolve problem, please provide us a error code (something like this Error 81000301)

I'll be waiting yours reply.
