Problem found - Uninstall MSN messenger using Windows Cleanup.

If you can't login and u get a '80072ee6' error go to:

* Close off MSN Messenger

* Go to Start

* Click Run

* Enter the following in the box: regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

* Re-Start MSN Messenger

If you get the 'Setup failed, 1635' error check this thread:

And Use this tool to clean up the installation: 'CleanUp Utility';en-us;290301

Hope that helps, have fun
