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//down...C35-EC1F888AC156/en/Contacts-ship-neutral.cab

unzip and run setup

Live Messenger has become a nightmar!! Every day there is a different error
code.
I wished so much to have the old version of Microsoft Messenger installed
without any "Live" or other whatever is screwing up the system!!!
I do not have WS7, I am not using Internet Explorer 8 - I have tried to
install the older versions of Messenger, but it "updates" it automatically to
the Live Messenger

Does anyone have a solution how to install and keep the old version??
Thank you
RH
