    I reformatted my gf's laptop with windows xp pro (what she was running before) i've updated everything, installed sp3, updated all the drivers.

    Now the last thing i have to do is install live messenger, the problem is every time i try to it says "Sorry, we couldn't install these programs"

    anyone got any ideas?

    I've tried restarting the lap top and installing again, and downloading the setup file again

    does it give a reason why it won't install?
    delete the old ones, reboot, run the installer

    it never gave any reasons, just opened up a web page that gave a few things it could be, i tried all of them and still didn't work

    i did a system restore to right before i installed all the windows updates, i skipped over installing sp3 for now and am installing the rest to see what happens this time around

    did a system restore and didn't install sp3, i'm guessing it was something to do with sp3 because all is well now
