I recently partitioned my hard drive and installed Windows 7 64bit. My other partition had Windows 7 32bit. I used the Windows Easy Transfer wizard to move settings over, but I manually moved all my files. I've since installed Windows Live Messenger and Live mesh, but whenever I start messenger, it crashes immediately.

Here are the crash details it gives me:

I've tried repairing and I tried uninstalling then deleting all MSN and live entries in c:\users\username\Local, Roaming and LocalLow as well as deleting the settings in registry at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger\PerPassportSettings\

After deleting them, I rebooted the PC, then redownloaded and reinstalled Windows Live essentials but it's still crashing.

How do I get this to work?
