the problem is that i can't just reinstall or redownload msn, each time i try it doesn't work anyway. Even if i try to update, it doesn't work. My computer crashed and all sorts of problems started happening. The only msn i can use is the one that is included with Internet explorer (6.0 i think), but there isn't much features with that so i just use ebuddy for now.

btw i had made an error in which its not 0x0000142, but 0xc0000142, so i fixed it on my first post
