Using live messenger during windows update installation

Q: Using live messenger during windows update installation

Hello

Sorry this might be a dumb question, but will my computer be ok if I opened live messenger and sent a few messges while windows update was being installed on full load on my HDD? I'm kinda worried it would cause some bugs or errors since there was lag when I was typing, opening windows etc wtih live messenger.

Preferred Solution: Using live messenger during windows update installation

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Using live messenger during windows update installation

Just personal opinion, and others may disagree. I prefer to let Windows Update and other "critical" operations like system images, creation of restore points, etc not have anything else going on in the background. Whenever system files are being accessed, read, or written to, I'd rather have all of my computer's resources concentrating on just that one task. But that's just me.

Hi,
For some reasons, i could not install Windows live messengers 9.0. It says:

Messenger couldnt be installed because we had trouble installing this requirement.
Microsoft Visual Studio Runtime
An error occurred during the installation of assembly
'Microsoft.VC.80.CRT,publickeytoken='1fc8k'
Please refer to help and support for more information
Please close all other open programs, and then try again. It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working. hr:0x80070643

I am using Vista on a Dell laptop. I did not open any program when i install it and i tried about 5 different installation file.

Many thanks for any help.

A:Problems with Windows live messenger 9.0 installation

You might have some left over installation file information in your registry. Try running the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and remove any old instances of Messenger and Visual Studios you find in the output list. Download the cleanup file and save. Then run as Administrator.

Hello,

I would like to install Windows Live on Vista Business, Service Pack 1, and have obtained the only installer I could find from the official site. However, it installs to c: by default, and I see no options to change this setting. Since I use c: only for system files, I'd like to know if it's possible to manually install the program to another drive.

Downloaded Messenger 2011 onto my new computer recently; however, when I went to open it, it couldn't find the files it needed. Went searching for the program everywhere, nowhere to be found, not even on the Programs List. So, I decided, best thing to do would be to re-download it, but when the new installer opened, it said that the program was already installed, despite its apparent absence from the computer.
There is a similar problem with Adobe Flash - tried to re-download it, but it continues to believe it's on my system. Hopefully I explained the problem well :/

Any and all help appreciated.

I have had Windows Live Messenger installed for a long time and I used to use it a lot, but not so much recently. Tonight I opened it up to try to contact someone and it opened fine, but the window included a message telling me that there was a newer version available and asked if I wanted to get the newer version. I clicked "yes" and an installation process began. I had a choice of things to install, but the only item I selected was Windows Live messenger. The process seemed to take longer than what I would have expected, but I patiently waited until it reached 100% installed. Unfortunately a message appeared telling me that it could not install Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Toolbar (which I had not asked for) and the installation was aborted. It gave an error number 0x80004004 for the Windows Live Messenger and for the Windows Live Toolbar it said it was unable to uninstall an older version of Windows Live Toolbar.

So I figured I would just keep using the version that I had, only that version no longer works. When I click on the icon for Windows Live Messenger I get a message saying that it cannot locate Windows Live Messeger.lnk.

So I went to "Add/Remove Programs" and tried to remove Windows Live Toolbar, but there I got a message saying that it could not find WLToolbar.msi. I then did a "Search" of my hard drive and the search results came up with nothing.

So then I went to www.microsoft.com, searched for Windows Live Messenger, ... Read more

A:Solved: Windows Live Messenger Installation Problem

I found an answer on another forum. I went to microsoft.com and downloaded a program named msicuu2.exe. When you install and run it, it displays a list of programs that have been successfully or unsuccessfully installed by a microsoft install program. You can then select one/all of those programs to remove. Although (at least in my case), it didn't really remove the software, it removed whatever it was that was keeping me from being able to install Windows Live Messenger. Everything is working fine now!

Hi

I have a new notebook since today (Asus Aspire 5102) with Windows Vista on it.
I installed Windows Live Messenger but I can't connect to the .net network. It says that the firewall isn't set up properly for Windows Live Messenger.

Though, the firewall is shut down...

So I got no firewall up and running. I have the same problem with the Windows Vista update system, AVG Update manager. They can't connect to the internet.

The internet connection is fine, I can surf on the net with internet explorer and firefox.

Anybody has an idea what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Philip,

For windows live messenger you have to edit firewall settings. Windows Firewall can prevent the message from leaving your computer, thereby preventing the malware from spreading to other users. This post on firewall settings for msn messenger describes how to check if it's your firewall that is blocking msn messenger. It would be helpful for you to get your Live Messenger up and running.

When i click the link that takes you to the solution problem in g live website, guess what???. I cant open the webpage because my it says that the page cant be opened due to my Internet connection????????

I dont know if its because of a configurated program in my computer that keeps blocking me or if its something else.

I installled a new "Creative Webcam Live" unit yesterday for her birthday. She uses MSN messenger on the internet using the broadband line and the webcam is intended to provide streamed live video images when chatting to her friends.

The installation did have problems and claimed some files could not be located but I search the c drive for the files required, found them all in c:\windows\system and navigated the installation wizard to them when asked using "browse" and the installation seemed to run to successful completion.

The application software provided titled "Webcam Manage Center" seems to run okay, starts the webcam and we can see high quality real time streamed images in the video window on the screen. So all seems well.

However, when she starts up the internet connection and signs into MSN Messenger with the live video option enabled, the session starts okay with good streamed video working too but quickly (after around 30 secs) the video streaming freezes and the image remains static and does not reset itself.

This is a slightly annoying problem. I've disabled Windows Live Messenger from starting up, both through Messenger's options and through MSCONFIG. The program doesn't start when Windows starts. But when I log on to Windows Live Mail through a web browser, Messenger starts up on it's own. I cannot figure out a way to disable this. I've looked through Live Mail options and can't find anything to denote starting up the program. I only use my Live Mail account for junk mail, but need to check it occasionally and would prefer it if Messenger didn't start up on it's own.

I find the assocation of windows live mail and messenger very annoying. In WL Mail, I use both my hotmail and gmail accounts. I prefer to save my passwords so I don't have to enter them every time I open my mail. However, if I get WL Mail to rememberr my passwords, my hotmail account automatically pops up first when I want to sign into WL Messenger, even though I never use hotmail in messenger (just the gmail sign-in). So now, I always have to change the sign-in information on messenger because somehow it prefers my hotmail account.
Simply clickinig 'forget me' in WL Messenger is not the solution since this also makes WL Mail forget my hotmail password, so I have to enter this one very time I open my mail.

So somehow I would like to dissociate the two, to have WL Mail to remember my passwords, but WL Messenger to forget the hotmail account. Does anyone know if there's any way to do so? I hate these automatic associations that you don't have any control over!

I have Norton SystemWorks 2001 which I have installed on both a desktop and laptop. Yesterday I installed it on my second desktop and it installed OK but won't recognize the Live Update feature. I get the warning message that I need to update but when I click on Live Update I get an error message saying that Live Update isn't installed. I've tried reinstalling it to no avail. Could it be that Symantec will allow only so many installations since they have no way of knowing whether it's a reinstallation on the same computer or a new installation on another computer?

The only other possibility which I can think of is this: In making the installation I didn't allow the Clean Sweep feature to be installed. But I don't see how there could be any interrelationship between the two.

Windows Live Messenger likes to randomly crash whenever I receive a response to an IM that I send. It doesn't do it any other time. I have tried to uninstall, restart, reinstall about 15 times now, with the same results almost immediately.

I use McAfee virus scan software and have a clean report on a full scan, I also have used Malwarebytes full version and done a fulls can on that- also clean.

This computer is only four months old. Other than this issue it seems to work fine, although I did have a random BSOD today. I'm considering wiping and reinstalling everything. I know how to do that.

Can anyone think of anything that might help this issue? Is there a registry entry or something that might be causing it?

A:Windows Live Messenger help

There has been a lot of trouble with McAfee lately. Maybe you should uninstall it for a while (but make sure you use the MCPR.exe) and use MSE instead.

Hello,

I am writing today about my Windows live messenger , its perfect I mean I can play msn games im email (00-02%/CPU 36,9800/Mem Usage) my friends but if i go into a voice chat/web cam conversation it just sucks the cpu from my computer. I have tried on windows Xp and Vista on the same machine and they both do the same thing in voice/cam chat (90%/CPU , 13,368/Mem Usage) . but on a different machine that blows compared to mine it is the same (00-02%/CPU 36,9800/Mem Usage) whether im in voice/cam chat or not. any one have any ideas.

I have done clean installs of both os's and windows live messenger.
and Installed DirectX worked for a moment but then came the sad defeat again.

2gb RAM
111gb HDD
Intel celeron "?" Prosesser

-Thanks, FusionLord.

From what I read on their site for system requirements, it says that XP 64-bit aren't supported (of course, oddly enough, they're supported on the 64-bit versions of Vista and Windows 7.... )From: Windows Live Messenger System Requirements

No matter how many times I uncheck it from the start up in msconfig, it seems to find a way to re-check itself. Any suggestions on how to make it stay OFF!?

Hello Sound Designer,

Did you uncheck this option below in Windows Live Messenger from the Tools - Options settings?



Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi there,
Since I have installed WLM I'm getting SQM files building up on my hard drive root directy. I delete them but they keep coming back. I did not subscribe to there customer feed back form ( Or what ever they called it ). What can I do to stop this from happening? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi 98vulcan...

unfortunately, you cannot disable this aspect of WLM. These files are created by design everytime you close the program.

You can revert to a final release version of MSN Messenger instead of WLM or perhaps use Window Messenger instead....but then you would lack the functionality of the latest version of WLM.

To me it's just a minor annoyance, each file created is less than 1kb which I delete at logon using a batch file.

Hope that helps :)

Hi,

In the top right control selections, the left one of the several there (hover your cursor and you should see [Show Menu]), select that. You should see a pull down list, with [Tools] and then [My Emoticons]. There you will be able to see the ones someone has added, and then select and [Unpin] them.

Close Msn, go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe" and change it to Vista compatibility mode.

When signing into wlm the page opens and as soon as it connects an error message appears (with the option to send to microsft; which I have done 20/30 times now) and then wlm shuts down. This sometimes then crashes IE. THIS ONLY HAPPENS ON ONE MACHINE - I can sign on on another PC with no problems, and a friend can sign on from the machine that wont allow me to sign on. WE have uninstalled wlm 8, deleted wlm from the registry and reinstalled - the same thing happens.

ANy ideas?
