Uninstall it with a program like Revo uninstaller. This also dumps the register of the program and sometimes that will solve your problem.
Or: look in microsoft's database for problems. I found answers to my problems many times. This page is for windows messenger http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/

Windows Live Messenger is not Responding TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS
a. In WINDOWS XP, click Start, click Run, type Control Appwiz.cpl in the Open box, and then click on OK to open the Add or Remove Programs item. In WINDOWS VISTA, click Start, type Control Appwiz.cpl on Start Search box and then press on ENTER. b. In the list of installed programs, search for any third-party toolbars, such as MyWebSearch Toolbar, Smiley Central, Messenger Plus, Kiwee Toolbar, Info Pen or MacroGaming SweetIM and then uninstall the program. c. Restart the computer. d. Sign in to Windows Live Messenger.
If the issue persists, it is possible that you have corrupted files associated with Windows Live Messenger. We will do what we call a Clean Install. This is different from the usual uninstall and reinstall process because here, we will completely remove all the components of Windows Live Messenger and install it anew. I know that the steps are lengthy and technical at some points.

all i can think of is make sure all files are gone then re-install or try running as administrator

I had that problem once, it was due to a runaware msnmsgr.exe process. Press CTRL ALT DELETE, locate the msnmsgr.exe process and click end process.
