    Trouble Downloading Windows Live Messenger and Microsoft Messenger

    Ok I have been having trouble downloading windows live messenger on my pc for
    a long time now.........everytime i go to install it brings up this error
    " The page cannot be displayed The page you are looking for is currently
    unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or
    you may need to adjust your browser settings.

    Please try the following:

    Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

    If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is
    spelled correctly.

    To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click
    Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should
    match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or
    Internet service provider (ISP).
    See if your Internet connection settings are being detected. You can set
    Microsoft Windows to examine your network and automatically discover network
    connection settings (if your network administrator has enabled this setting).
    Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
    On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
    Select Automatically detect settings, and then click OK.
    Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then
    click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have
    installed.
    If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings
    can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the
    Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0,
    SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
    Click the Back button to try another link.

    Greetings,

    Well since it appears your problem is happening on both the PC and Mac, it's obviously a
    network problem of some kind as opposed to some sort of software problem.

    I'm afraid their probably isn't anyone here who can directly help you with this as it's a tad
    difficult to deal with such problems over e-mail or newsgroups unless you specifically know
    the problem.

    However, have you tried downloading it from the Microsoft Download Center as opposed to the
    actual Messenger site? If not, try from here:
