Windows Live Messenger has stopped working

  1. Hey,

    I just bought a new laptop yesterday and I have Windows Live OneCare
    installed and Windows Vista and everything works well except for Windows Live
    Everytime I log into my account, it signs in, but within 5 secs it comes up
    with "Windows Live Messenger has stopped working: A problem caused the
    program to stop working corrently. Windows will close the program and notify
    you if a solution is available"
    And it never finds a solution, I just click "Close program" and it exits
    At first I thought it was Norton AntiVirus, as I had a two month
    subscription to that preloaded into the computer, as Norton had prevented
    access to Messenger on the home computer, but I uninstalled Norton and
    installed OneCare and it is still doing it.
    Does anybody have any idea what is going on with my computer and if I can
    fix it?

  2. Never mind, it was the Windows Live Today that was stuffing it up!

    Well, Apparently the problem is with the latest version of Messenger and not
    older versions. If you download Live Messenger 8.0 it works find no DEP error
    or any kind of error. You can download Live Messenger 8.0 from:

    Although it is not the latest version but its better then not using one at
    all. Hopefully Microsoft will find a solution soon.

    Hello, I am still having a similar situation happening with my brand new
    Vista system. Upon opening certain, not ALL emails, i get the message that
    "Windows Live Desktop Has stopped working" and then the thing shuts down.
    VERY Frustrating. I have recently reinstalled windows and for a while, it i
    did NOT do this, but now, after installing Windows ONE care, now it closes
    the application down. Does anyone have any solutions for this terrible
    problem???? Thanks!
