I can't seem to install messenger 6.2 on my computer, I
had it on my computer at one point but I had troubles
signing in, so I decided to uninstall in and then re-
install it again, except now I can't install it again. It
tells me the setup has failed with error code:'1603'. It
tells me to go to the help and support page to solve the
problem, but that doesn't solve my problem. I this
computer has the newest version of IE, and Windows XP.
Wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and found
out how to fix it. Thanks for your help in advance.

Greetings James,

Do you have Ad Watch running (it's part of AdAware)? If so, turn it off and then run the
setup again.

How do I know if I have Ad Watch, or AdAware? I don't
think I do.
