hi, hope someone can help, i have just returned from hols, and when i tried to sign in to msn messenger i got a message saying i must download new version, i have tried to do this about 10 times and it downloads ok but then rolls back every time, i have tried it with firewall disabled but no success at all, any advise very much appreciated.

I don't think you can use the older versions any more for security reasons.

trying to download new version but it just rolls back everytime.

Try uninstalling the older version first, rebooting and reinstalling WLM. Found under windows live essentials in add/remove.

thanks dave but i have already uninstalled older version, but still unable to install new version, it gets to 100% then rolls back.

I don't know if this will work but try a manual download from here; click here
If your older version is uninstalled then try running Ccleaner's regietry cleaner first then the Softpedia link.
Ccleaner; click here

Don't know if it will help(never used it) but maybe worth a try?
