  1. Not a valid Win32 application?

    I have downloaded NineMSN Messenger and when I run it it gives me a message stating it is not a valid Win32 application. My operating system is Windows ME. Help!!:( :confused:

    You sure you got a good download? Tried re-downloading it? Sounds like the file is corrupt to me.

    You may not be able to redownload it if it "thinks" it finished it. If this happens, clear your donwload cache in Internet Exlplorer by going to Tools/Internet Options/Delete files

    If you are using a different browser other than Internet Explorer and don't know how, just ask.

    This problem is almost always due to a corrupted download, which redownloading almost always fixes. Good luck.
