Almost everybody I know has had a problem with messenger live (If thats the one you've installed). Some have removed it, sending an email to Microsoft telling them why they don't like there product and the problems you have had. I personally recommend sticking to an older version. Reinstalling it has worked aswell.
Most of these problems were in the beta and were not fixed before it was released.

The one that I have installed is MSN Messenger 7.5. I'm not sure if this is the 'Live' version that was mentioned, but it is not a Beta.

As far as what it is trying to install I am not sure, it comes up with "The wizard helps to install software for 'Unknown'". I carn't find any mention of what it is.

Strange how it comes up with unknown... I suggest sending us your HijackThis logfile for analyzation to make sure this isn't malware related.

I have just copied underneath the HJT file, but I also had a look at the device manager and it has in it 3 things under the section "unknown devices". One is RAID controller, which is fine seeming I don't use that config, and 2 others are listed purely as "unknown devices". I'm not sure if this means anything but anyway. Thanks for you help guys.
