having spent nearly 3 weeks getting rid of error 8007007e i thought i had seen the end of windows live messenger problems. But no. After signing out of my first successful post 8007007e session, the next time i signed in it looked to open ok, briefly showed the WLM contacts window, then shut down, leaving a WLM icon in the task bar. If you move the cursor over that icon, it disappears. So i tried signing in with a different id. Success - thought i'd cracked it. Emailed all my friends to give them the new id. Signed back in later - same thing, it closed itself after a few seconds. By way of a test i set up a new id - first time i used it it was fine - on subsequent log ons it just closed after briefly displaying the contact window.
I am very reluctant to do a reinstall because i know windows & other uninstallers don't do the job and leave bits behind, and when you try a reinstall it says you already have messenger. Even if you get past that, that road leads to error 8007007e and all its frustrations.
So - any suggestions on what i can do to stop WLM closing? Googling to find a solution i'm amazed at how many problems people are having with this program... it's about time MS released a working version!!
