Im having the same exact problem!
Reinstall Live messenger about three times. Just after putting my id and
password, it freezes and i can never talk or send a message.
Is there a way forward. Going to install Skype and forget about Live
Messenger i think.
Even install Messenger 7.5 but before log in a message displays that to
continue it needs to upgrade the version to...... u got it, Live Messenger
8!!!!!! Microsoft is driving me crazy!!! Even considering of going to MAC.
