Is it normal to have to disable firewall when downloading Windows Live Messenger. Also after download is saved to disk, the download disappears, just goes away and no download is done.

Where did you download Windows Live Messenger? Did you purchase it at a store in a disk or did you download it off the internet?

I advise you to run an anti-spyware and/or malware and/or anti-virus scanner on your PC. If it doesn't find anything, remove everything Windows Live Messenger related from your PC and re-download it.

I noticed that when downloading Windows Live Messenger, that the dialogue box which appears does not indicate a "download" but an "install.exe" operation. Is this the normal procedure.?
