    Your issue is resolved by uninstalling your previous version of Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs control panel; Restarting your computer; Then back at Desktop install the newer or different version.

    In many cases also temporarily disabling your anti-virus' Real-Time scanner before the install of the new or different version, as well as the above, will resolve the issue.
