Using Vista
I cannot get my Windows Messenger to open.
I am unable to open any attchments to my e-mails or view items I have scanned over to the PC
Any suggestions would be helpful

Have you got the latest update for it.I did read somewhere if you do not have the latest update that you will no longer be able to get e-mail messages.But I suppose that would not stop messenger from opening.Can you do a repair of messenger in Add remove.
Or maybe remove it and download it again.

Not quite sure where you would download it from.Would it be Microsoft?

latest version windows messenger is 5.1 & windows LIVE messenger is 14.0.8064 0206 which can be downloaded from MS site.

That is the version that I use.Check what one you are using. Help.About Messenger will tell you what you have.
If you are using the same version just now.maybe better waiting for further information on how to repair it.

buteman's version 9 has been withdrawn due to beta stage.

Oops.Forgot about the two versions.Windows messenger 5.1 is not needed and is a bit of a nuisance if it is Windows Live messenger that you use.
Thanks kdt for the reminder.

Oops again.I use it and it says nothing about it being a beta or I would not have downloaded it.
I downloaded it from Microsoft so will have to have a look and see what the problem is.
Thanks once again for the information.

Looking on the Microsoft site it gives you this one as the latest.

Getting a little confusing just now.maybe better waiting until you get the latest confirmation from others.Sorry about mix ups.
