    Hi Pepper987222,

    Try this

    a) Go to add/remove programs and uninstall MSN messenger

    b) Go to registry
    Navigate to these locations


    and remove all entries of MSN messenger

    c) Run that windows messenger removal command again
    Start --> run ---> RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    d) Restart your computer . Download the latest MSN messenger 6.2 . Install it and check what happens
