RE: Windows Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to clos

I had this problem or a similar problem, plus lots of MS programs and certain
other programs had a huge delay starting up(such as administrative
tools-Services or the Stardock galaciv2 install program) It turns out that
it was an MDM-DCOM problem.

The solution to my problem was going into IE-Internet Options-Advanced
Tab-Disable Script Debugging(check this, you might also have 2 versions, IE
and Other, check both of those) That disables the MDM process, which is only
used if you debug your system(if you don't know what debugging is, you do not
debug:)

RE: Windows Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to

Well here is the only fix I found that works

I saw there was the IE7 Beta 3 so I downloaded it and had to uninstall the
Beta 2 to
Get the 3 so I uniinstalled it and then ran Live Messenger and it is working
now
I haven't installed the Beta 3 to see if it will work or not yet

this happens to me too, but only when I change my status to anything other than offline on ver8.0
