    Well thats not the usual,

    Do you get a message on your screen or does the software just not work?

    Regards

    Strange,

    Here are some messenger alternatives i have tried on Vista that worked

    Pidgin IM

    Instan-T

    Sim IM

    Miranda IM

    Easy Message

    If you are stuck with Windows Live Messenger then try StuffPlug which is sort of like MessengerPlus except it attaches itself to your current 'Official' Messenger service Smile


    I'm wondering if the software your trying to download has a license where by Vista is detecting it and stopping it from working,

    Try some of these free Open Source products and let me know if ANY of them work on your Computer

    Open Source Windows


    Regards
