Hi all
I want to install Windows live messenger and get the following error:

I have admin account, so have full access. Can i try to insert it manually or why whould it give this error.
Another thing (might be related) i tried installing yahoo messenger it says succesfuly install but it doesnt open. When i go to the place where i installed it and click on the *.exe file it just does nothing. I did virus scan with SAS,HouseCall and my Bitdefender and found nothing.
This is very weird.

Thanks in advance.

You could try uninstalling any previous versions of microsofts messengers first.
Just a guess.
