Hi Priscilla halyard,

As your MSN is corrupted, you should reinstall this software rather than trying to recovery it.

Search for the most recent update of MSN Messenger and install it. You should clean your registry before installing this software. There is much software for registry cleaning. Download any one and clean it. Now try a new starting.

Thanks.

Make sure that you are always running Office 2003 Service Pack 3 in order to continue receiving security updates for Office. I highly recommend that you visit this website: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/835404, so that you can find the answer to your question on how to restore your Antivirus software. Your Antivirus software has been unable to remove the file and that is why your MSN Messenger is corrupted.

If your MSN Messenger has that problem on the search option, I guess you shouldn’t be worried about it. MSN Messenger is a very old messenger application to still be using. Microsoft already replaced it with Skype. So if you have a problem with your MSN Messenger app on your computer, go download Skype for Windows. It requires Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 both 32-bit and 64-bit.

The MSN Messenger was released on July 22, 1999 and lasted until August 23, 2005 when Microsoft released the very last version, MSN Messenger 7.5. It was later rebranded under the name Windows Live Messenger. On June 19, 2006, Microsoft officially released Windows Live Messenger 8.0. It had 3 beta versions until its final release: version 8.0 beta 1, version 8.0 beta 2, and version 8.0 beta 3.

In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies. In 2013, Windows Live Messenger was discontinued. After Microsoft start ceasing the service, for 18 months, the service in China continued to be active until October 31, 2014 when it announced cease of operations. Microsoft announced on November 6, 2012 that the services Skype and Messenger would merge in the first quarter of 2013.
