Default MSN troubles


Over the last couple of weeks i've been experiencing issues with MSN since accepting a MS update or six. Last time i back dated my machine a day and it cured teh fault, this time gowever i'm unsure of how far back i need to go.

When i try opening MSN i get the following message;

C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messanger\msnmsgr.exe

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.

Of course thats just great but i have no idea what the hell it means nor how to over come the problem other than doing a reboot from before the update came through.

My machine is a Toshiba Equium, about four years old and running on Vista 32bit if that helps in any way.
