How do I fix error code 80004005 on Windows live Messenger
After the Live essentials installer locked up during the installation process, resulting in the live messenger etc not being installed correctly I have not been able to run Messenger on my computer. Since the installation went funny I there is no Windows
Live Essentials removal available in programs and the setup file says that Live Essentials is installed and won't uninstall or let me reinstall to fix the install. After several months I tried the setup again and it updated my "installed MSN" and I am now
able to open Messenger but it it produces error code 80004005 and I haven' t been able to find anything helpful with a google search.
I can click troubleshoot however all those tests pass without a problem and my Messenger then is stuck with various things grayed out (such as the sign in button) and the program must then be restarted in order to try to log in again.
I think there are various files missing so a reinstall may fix my problem but I do not know where to begin to uninstall messenger without the removal option in programs. Is anyone able to give me the steps to do this manually or a free utility that will do
the job for me.
