Windows Live Messenger Problems.

  Edward-207256 16:59 08 Dec 2008

I've recently purchased a new Acer Aspire 5920 laptop and I am having trouble installing Windows Live Messenger. It came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home, has a 250GB harddrive and 2GB DDR2 Ram. I get the following message when the installer tries to run:

"Sorry we couldn't install these programs."

Not installed: Messenger
Not installed: Sign-in Assistant

Any help would be much appreciated.



P.S. I've been guided to place this here because it had no success on the helproom forum. Any help is much appreciated.

That didn't work, i had to disable Windows Firewall for it to install, then i re-enabled once installed and all is fine. Thanks for the help.
