    It seems that MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger are both being posted
    here. Seems that I have the only post on the WLM Discussion ;)

    Last night I couldn't use WLM until I updated. Install failed 5-6 times.
    Even went directly to the download. No conflicting prgrams or so it said. I
    shut ESET and Malwarebytes and other systray apps down - still failed.
    Removed WLM via Add/Remove feature via Absolute Uninstaller (did not show in
    Add/Remove - strange?) The next install failed. Removed all Live
    applications, Installed - success. Launced WLM and told me I needed to update
    (*&^%^*( grrrh! Rebooted an all is OK now, except Family Safety failed to
    install. Most of this occured with the previous update as well, but didn't
    have to uninstall all the Live applications.

    Looks like the conflicting programs were its own ..... lol

    Why am I forced to update something that on my system is working, not borken?

    Now running Version 2009 14.0.8117.416

    I just read in one of the other posts that the WLM discussion has been
    closed. Well, isn't that just dandy ... It would be good then to let the
    poster know that it is so and not allowing a post ... Now I feel kinda of
    (*$^[email protected]#O)(* Oh well, not the first time. Anyway, I hope the original post is
    helpful to some.

    Help and Support for Windows Live Messenger (downloaded from
    http://download.live.com) can be found here:

    Typically a forced upgrade happens because of a security issue or the inability
    to continue to support the older version due to a planned change in technology.
    An optional upgrade is offered to provide new features and bug fixes.
