Latest version of Windows update breaks Messenger

I noticed this problem a week ago. After that the automatic windows update, Live Messenger gives a fatal startup error. The error message reads "Windows Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience. »

If I restore my computer to before the restore point "software distribution service 3.0", it works perfectly. I also disabled the automatic updates in the Control Panel, still today, I found exactly the same problem and a system restore point at 2:21 in the morning, labeled "software distribution service 3.0.

I have to say that I'm terribly disappointed that a windows update would break a windows product, and moreover that the deactivation of the automatic control panel updates does not, disable, auto updates and allows this process continue to run unwanted on my PC.

It is the first line of the error report.

AppName: msnmsgr.exe AppVer: 14.0.8089.726 AppStamp:4a6ce533
ModName: wldcore.dll ModVer: 14.0.8089.726 ModStamp:4a6ce514
fDebug: 0 Offset: 00002ee5

I have not installed at all new program last month, so I doubt that there is no conflict, and restore to the point before the update immediately fixing it seems to point to the update as being the culprit.

    Hi John,.

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state and check the status.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Place your system in the clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. You must follow the steps in the article mentioned below to perform a clean boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: see 'How do I reset the computer to start normally after a boot minimum troubleshooting' to reset the computer starts normally after troubleshooting.

    Hope this information is useful. Please feel free to answer in the case where you are facing in the future other problems with Windows.

  • What is the latest version of Windows Media Player compatible with WM 6.5?

    I have a HTC Touch Pro 2 running Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone.  What is the latest version of Windows Media Player, I can use?

    You can not.

    Your question was not entirely clear.

    WMP is for XP, not the HTC device. If you have Windows mobile on your HTC, then it will be a Media Player built into it. If you have the latest version, AFAIK you update from 6.5 to what is the latest version of Windows Mobile. If its 6.5, then you already have the latest version.

  • Windows Update breaks black Lenovo 2 sensors, inevitable system upgrade

    Hello world

    Played with the 2 black of Lenovo for a few days now and I live the boring problems.

    I don't know the exact origin of the problem, but I don't know that one of the windows update break sensors causing its functioning and the breakdown of some features.

    • Try using the search or the PC in Metro UI settings feature freezes the tablet.

    With each update, I made sure that no update driver is selected, but that doesn't seem to help.

    And the most annoying part is refreshing that the tablet takes forever... (2-3 h)
