Hi, about an hour ago a storm far away knocked out power in my area. My computer obviously shut down as a result. Windows Live Messenger was one of several programs running on my computer when the shut down occured.
After booting up my computer again when power was restored, everything worked fine except Windows Live Messenger which now refuses to open. It gives a "Windows Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close." issue... no other real information is provided.
I am running Windows XP SP3 fully updated, with fully updated drivers. I attempted to "Repair" Windows Live Essentials... and I even attempted to reinstall Windows Live Messenger via the installer downloaded from the net. Neither option worked.
The Error signature is as follows:
AppName: msnmsgr.exe AppVer: 14.0.8117.416 AppStamp:4bc935af
ModName: wldcore.dll ModVer: 14.0.8117.416 ModStamp:4bc93503
fDebug: 0 Offset: 00002ee5
If any other information is needed, just ask. I would appreciate any help in this matter.
