Hi Ya

Over the last i have suddenly started getting the following pop up when i log onto my laptop:

msnmsgr.exe - Application Error
The application failed to intialize properly (0xc)150004). Click OK to terminate the application.

So i click ok then i get the following pop up box:
Microsoft Windows
Messnger has stopped working
A problem cause the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and nofity
you if a solution is available.

I then close that and can carry on using my laptop fine apart from my msn messenger. I have unistalled it and tried to instal it again but then when i try and use it i get the above error messages again.

Anyone shed any light on this please, and what i need to do to firstly fix it and then enable me to use msn messenger again (i guess they are connected).

Thanks in advance!

Maybe give your security programs a run in case it is a virus.

I ran Windows Defender and avast! but neither found a virus.

Maybe turn off your Firewall and see if that works.Or download Revo Uninstaller and remove it using that.Then run C Cleaner and then reinstall it. Or wait till someone can give you some better information.

Maybe try Malwarebytes [free] or Superantispyware.Windows Defender is not as good at finding problems as those two.
