Did you happen to update MSN? That happens to old MSN shortcuts after you update the program.

Run it from Start > Programs > MSN Messenger and you should be fine.

No I didn't update msn, I used a program on my computer and it restored every thing back to when the cpu was purchessed, and then when i went to use msn 6.2
it said parameter incorrect so i looked around and theres and older version of msn that works, but i want my msn 6.2 to work i tryed updating it but it dont work for some reason it says it installed but when i open it its still the old version of msn
i mean i tryed updatibg the working version of msn

Go to Start > Run and run this command

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

This will remove any version of windows messenger. Now go to http://messenger.msn.com and get the latest version of MSN messenger.
