    Greetings Jordan,

    Although this could be caused by a variety of things (it's trying to access a control which
    isn't registered), generally the control that's not registered correctly is the Microsoft XML
    parser.

    The Messenger Support blog has a write-up on the steps to do this, so just head over to the
    following link:

    Cause: MSXML library may be corrupted and may have to be reinstalled

    Troubleshooting steps:

    Step 1. Re-register msxml3.dll

    - Click on the Start menu, select Run and type the following:
    Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\msxml3.dll

    Hopefully, you will see a window popup that says: DllRegisterServer
    succeeded in C:\Windows\System32\msxml3.dll is succeeded.

    Step 2. Restart your computer and sign into Messenger again

    if it registers with success and you still get the error number then
    download this
    http://download.microsoft.com//downl...ip-neutral.cab

    unzip and run setup
