  2. Greetings,

    You may just want to do a manual install from the Microsoft Installer files (MSI) themselves
    (that's all the installer downloads).

    You can grab them from here:

    I don't know if I did anything incorrect but I downloaded the files on your
    page , and I notice messenger did download on my system . But it was
    unresponsive and wouldn't open . I had Messenger on this same system , but I
    recently just did a total factory reset and loaded windows 7 again .

    download the Windows Live Essentials from the Windows Updates it give me the
    same message error .
