Can't get windows live messenger to open - incorrect configuration

When I try to open windows live messenger, I get a message saying that the application configuration is incorrect.  I uninstalled the program and reinstalled and I still get the same message.  The message is: the application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.  Reinstalling the application may fix the problem.

  • I can't get WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER to download & install.

    I tried to download & install WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER on my system.  I am running WINDOWS XP (PRO) SP3, and it seems to work normally.  Download appeared initially, but after a FEW MINUTES, the green progress bar showed all 34% - and the download stopped.  I received a message telling me that the download COULD NOT CONTINUE.  (NO ERROR NUMBER, however)  The usual warnings while ensuring that I was connected to the internet, etc., were unnecessary.  I checked WINDOWS firewall settings and they seem to be configured to allow download of WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER will pass through it.  What should I do at this point?

    This may sound strange, but you need to do is to reinstall Windows live

  • How can I stop Windows Live Messenger open at startup?

    Windows Live Messenger opens whenever I start my laptop, and it does not to her PIN on the bar of.
    Short of uninstalling this program (if that is even possible), how can I stop to open at startup and it detach all the time in the taskbar?  Thanks for your help.

    Hello

    I can help you to stop Live Messenger from running at startup but don't know why it won't let you it detach from the task bar. It should leave you with the right button and choose "unpin this program from the taskbar".
    On the login screen when messenger starts first, click Help on the right with the (?) and in the menu on the button, put a check mark next to "show the menu bar.
    OK - now you can access the menus at the top of the window. Go to tools-> Options.
    In the window that appears, click "sign in" on the list on the left and uncheck the box to the top right ("automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on Windows ')
    Next time you reboot, Live Messenger doesn't have to load at startup.
    It may be useful to uninstall and download again to see if there is a updated version that works better.
    Hope this will help

  • How can I stop Windows Live Messenger issuing alerts every minutes, hours and days of the year? I don't use it.

    I do not use Windows Live Messenger, but he insists on the display of alerts telling me to connect. Why it does this and how can I stop without causing problems in other areas? I know nothing about it except that the people who try to contact me (I guess) can do it without going through channels such as email or telephone.

    I assume you have Windows Live Messenger, because you have installed the Windows Live Essentials.
    If so, a brief explanation...
    Windows Live Essentials includes some programs that can be installed or NOT, must be installed. You can choose whoever you want.

    Now, you have 2 options...

    1. you can disable. He will remain in the system but inactive.

    2. you can purely and simply uninstall it, and it will be out of the system.

    RE: Disable Messenger
    Open MSN Messenger > at the top, click on tools > click Options > column to the left, click on Sign In > straight column, uncheck all boxes > click OK done wnhen.

    RE: Uninstall Messenger

    Start button > in the search box, type programs and features > press the Enter key. Scroll down to Windows Live Essentials > right click it > click on uninstall...
    Follow the guests but be careful to screen > it will ask you what program to uninstall. Select Windows Live Messenger. Follow the prompts.
