    Windows live messenger is not opening in Vista

    My Acer laptop runs in Windows Vista Home Premium. Last week I have installed the new version of Windows live messenger. Even after successful installation, I am unable to sign in to Windows live messenger. What should be done to overcome this problem?

    Hi,

    Trouble that you are encountering can come from a variety of sources, let me mention a few.

    Uninstall the Messenger from Control Panel > Add/ Remove Programs option. Then reinstall it again.

    Try to delete all content of Recycle Bin in case you have deleted any of Windows Live Messenger earlier.

    A very quick solution is that you can get WLM to work by right clicking the icon and selecting 'Use as Administrator'. This should allow WindowsLiveMessenger to open without recurring error message.
    Try them.
    Thanks.
