    hello again guys.

    so i went to go on windows messenger today, and as soon as i clicked it, it said that the 'program had stop working'

    i've tried un-installing it, but i can't find it anywhere on my list!
    i've gone into my program files, and deleted what i could then.

    now i re-downloaded the program off their site, and each time i go to install it it, says I've already got it installed. but i can not find it anywhere in my program list

    It sounds like it's half uninstalled, so that it thinks it's gone, but it hasn't.
    Try downloading Revo Uninstaller - it's freeware, and it should hopefully try and get rid of any remnants of WLM :smashin:
    Let me know how it goes :thumbsup:

    Which OS are you using?

    When you deleted it from Program Files, did it remove all files if not what was left?

    Have you tried doing Add Remove Programs and clicking Change -> Repair?
