Windows Live Messenger installation problem

By bs ·
I have Windows Vista Business installed on an Acer Aspire 9300 laptop, and have tried to install Windows Live Messenger. I have tried both v8.5 and 2008, and although the installation appears to complete successfully, when I attempt to start the application nothing happens. If I try to remove the application, a dialogue appears which informs me that I have to shut down Messenger in order to proceed.

Has anyone managed to overcome this and, if so, how did you do so?

had any problems with this at all, the only time Live messenger kicks up a fuss when I install it on any work station is usually down to Windows critical updates. Is the laptop all up to date?
