Best bet Moggers,reinstall Msn messenger...and if you have the addon Messengerplus...remove it,its more trouble than its worth.

How to remove addon's:

TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS > PROGRAMS > MANAGE ADD-ON > HIGHLIGHT MESSENGERPLUS (if on your system) DISABLE

Try running Ewido click here then run ccleaner click here also worth running this click here
Run these,reboot and try msn.This should with a little luck rule out any registry errors or malware.

These are all free.

You may like to think about running these on a regular basis.
