You get a "massage" really ? :D 
First the directory looks all messed up, right click properties and make sure to correct the slash before windows and default install is NOT the windows directory.
I would do a thorough virus check and malware first. The correct link would be "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" see if correcting the link fixes it.
