Ok trying to install windows live messanger on my computer after it broke a few weeks ago. It wouldnt install and gave no reason why. Then when i closed it it opened up a hlep window which said that my windows update possibbly isnt working. Clicked on tools ^^ then windows update and it said the paged had loaded but it hadnt there was just a white page.
So i went into program files and ran internet explorer off a different user clicked windows update and it said this:

Files required to use Microsoft Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer. To continue:


Register or reinstall the files for me now (Recommended)
Let me read about more steps that might be required to solve the problem

^^ there were 2 options so i click the first and it says its downloading and registering and then says its finished, but it loops around and shows the same message which i got to start with :) any ideas how to fix this? any help appreciated.

To repair windows updates: Download Dial-a-Fix from the link in my list of programs below, unzip the folder and click dial-a-fix.exe. Check Fix Window Updates and click Go.

Do you have XP installation CD? If yes, insert it into the drive, click Start > Run. Type sfc /scannow (note the space in the command) and press Enter. Let the repair process of system files continue until the dialog box just disappears.
