    I made what i now realise was a mistake in upgrading to Windows Live
    messenger from MSN messenger 7.5.
    Now none of my messengers will restore or maximise - they just sit in
    the systray or taskbar. The right-click context menu will open, but that
    is all. I don't get any errors, just no response. Windows Live Messenger
    will allow me to right-click and select 'send instant message', and it
    opens my buddy-list, but it wont allow me into the main window to manage
    my buddy-list or change any settings.
    I have uninstalled them all, reinstalled, used olderversion.com to
    replace my original installation, and have currently had to give up and
    use GAIM (which isn't bad but has no webcam features).
    I use xp pro sp2.

    Any thoughts?
