My desktop has a Windows XP operating system. I wanted to install MSN messenger in my desktop and hence searched the internet. I soon realized that the latest updated version of the messenger was Windows Live Messenger.

I proceeded to download Windows Live Messenger from the internet. I successfully downloaded the executable file called "wlsetup-custom.exe" . I ran the setup file, and installed Windows Live Messenger in my computer. Initially after installation, the messenger worked fine.

After some time, the Windows Live Messenger just permanently refused to let me to sign in to my messenger account though i was connected to internet and all other internet based applications worked fine in my computer. I thought that the messenger application was having problem and thus decided to reinstall it.

I first deleted or uninstalled the current Windows Live Messenger from my computer successfully. Then i ran the setup file "wlsetup-custom.exe" again, but the installation application says that i already have "Messenger" installed and does not provide me the option to install "Messenger" anymore. The setup only provides me with options to install other accompanying applications such as "Mail" , "Photo Gallery", "Toolbar" and etc features.

I want to install Messenger again in my computer. How do i do it ? Any help is greatly appreciated.
