I have MSN6 installed. When trying to upgrade to MSN 7 I couldn't. I got an error message saying

this application has failed to start CRYPTNET.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem

I decided not to upgrade after seeing this . I then noticed my MSN 6 had been completely disappeared. I tried to reinstall MSN 6.2 but could not. I got a message saying I had to upgrade to MSN7 in order to complete installation.
I can't install 7 because I'm missing this CRYPTNET dll!
Help me get my MSN messenger back! :tazz:

You could also click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace system files, you need the XP CD, it runs a blue progress bar and goes off when complete
