    Just upgraded to Windows Live Messenger and it installed 'successfully' but when I go to run the program it gives me an error message multiple times saying

    "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application."

    I have tried reinstalling it all several times but to no prevail. I'm incredibly annoyed after having to revert back to the original Windows Messenger which lacks the features of later versions, any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Is this a Sony Vaio?

    Apparently this is a known problem and to fix it you need to do this:

    Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove programs and remove:

    SonicStage Mastering Studio Audio Filter


    This should remedy the problem.
