Hi everyone,\nYesterday I installed my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OS using the costum\ninstall because I wanted to whipe clean my Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop. And\neverything is working so far, except that I can't install the Windows Live\nMessenger.\n\nI've tried downloading the setup from download.live.com, microsoft.com, and\nusing the Windows Update, but it doesn't finish to install. I've watched and\nattempted to run the Windows Live Setup about 6 times. And it's always the\nsame thing. At around 98% it's installing the Windows Live Call, and when it\nreaches 100% it rolls back.\n\nI also tried downloading the Msn Messenger 7.0 and attempting to update the\nsoftware. For the record, I can't even use the Msn Messenger 7.0 because it\nsays that I need to update it. And I can't update it because apparently I'm\nnot connected to the .NET Messenger Service. I tried testing the connection\nand it didn't work because of an invalid character script error. After that,\nI checked the Advanced Settings and ran the tests; my TCP and HTTP Proxy\nConnection is working.\n\nI'm currently using Kaspersky Internet Security and I even checked to see if\nthe firewall was blocking it, but the Windows Live Setup is treated as a\ntrusted software. I even attempted to turn off my firewall to see if it made\na difference. No luck so far.\n\nThe error says:\nCheck to be sure you are connected to the Internet. You cannot download\nWindows Live programs unless you're connected to the Internet. hr:0x8104000d\n\nI honestly don't get it. I'm currently connected by LAN with an ethernet\ncable, but I also tried unplugging it and connecting to the internet using\nWAN.\n\nThe only possible cause of this problem that comes to mind is that I had to\nuninstall the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility before I could uninstall\nWindows 7. But I already ran all Windows Updates. Not that it made any\ndifference since I was already connected to the internet.\n\nAny ideas on how to fix it?
