windows messenger - side by side configuration

my windows messenger is no working as 'its side by side configuration is incorrect'.

I have not changed anything...
Anyone else had this problem?

Googling this showed a couple of possible solutions.

System Restore back to before the problem occurred.

Uninstall Messenger and then reinstall. click here

thanks, but my laptop then says " can not locate INF FILE C:/WINDOWS/INF/msmsgs."

Messenger might be on my D drive - if that makes a difference?

No it doesn't because the path given is to the Windows folder which I assume is on C.

What version of Windows and Messenger do you have.

Target is C, see below:
"C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe"

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%INFmsmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

I am on Windows Vista
