  1. Hi Guys,
    had the same error messages when trying to log on to msn all week, "update unsucsesful" then a "messenger needs to be repaired.......". Not working, IE 7 not working. Infact the only way to get online was to install Firefox from a PC Utilities disk.
    I do get a brief flash of "MSN Explorer is being updated................" message.
    Any ideas guys.

    An exact error number would help if there is one.

    Make sure your system is free of malware by completing this guide.

    Try getting the updates by booting into Safe Mode with Networking.

    Try reinstalling the applications.
