    Completely uninstall messenger
    Delete the messenger directory
    In an explorer window go to tools>folder options >view and check the show hidden files and folders box
    Go to c:\program files\msn messenger and delete winmm.dll, if it won’t delete, this is because you have messenger running - close it and try again
    Reboot pc

    Re-install Messenger

    Put tools>folder options >view and check the show hidden files and folders box
    Back to normal

    Done

    So, after completely removing Messenger and re-installing it
    Plus removing the entire folder (found in C:\Program Files\Messenger)
    You still get the same error?

    Try without uninstalling it first

    Note: I personnally removed the entire of Messenger long ago
    So my information is limited on this, but should still work.
