    Hi, hoping someone can help me here. I've used MSN Messenger just fine for
    around ten years now, and version 7.0 for a number of years. A few days ago
    it stopped working, and even deleting it from my computer and reinstalling
    from the Microsoft website doesn't solve the problem.

    When I log into MSN Messenger, it briefly opens and displays my contacts (I
    can see who is or isn't online), but then within about 2 or 3 seconds an
    error message pops up, and the program closes.

    The error message reads:

    "msnmsgr.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will
    need to restart the program. An error log is being created."

    Restarting the program just repeats the error, and reinstalling the program
    still generates the error.

    No changes have been made to my computer, and I cannot install a newer
    version as no newer versions exist for Windows 2000.

    Firefox is my default browser, but IE6 is installed.

    Any help would be appreciated.
