Windows Live Messenger

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit, and I have just installed Windows Live messenger.  Everytime it loads, i get a message as ;
"A newer verion is available.  u must install the newer version in order to continue.  Do u like to do this now?  And the options are Continue and Cancel.  
Even if I were to select continue or Cancel, the same message appears again and again.  
And when I hit continue, I get an error to say that the version I have is a new version, and do I wish to continue.  And the program that is being is Skype.
Hope the experts can please advise me how to troubeshoot this problem.  I have still not started using this program or set up my msn account - the free version.
Thank u

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
