Do you have or use any plugins for it? If so, switch them off or preferably uninstall them.
Additionally, open Internet Explorer.
Go to Tools
>Underneath "Browsing", find "Disable Script Debugging"
>There may be two options that say the same thing, disable both.
>Also disable "Enable Third Party Browser Extensions"
>Click Apply & then OK
>Try Windows Messenger.
If this fails, you may have to uninstall and reinstall Windows Live Messenger.
While the computer is booting, gently tap (continously) the F8 key. This will bring up the safe mode window. Use the arrow keys to move up to the selection 'last known good configuration' Click enter and let the computer do it's thing.
Hopefully this will correct the problem for you.
