Msn "failed to initialize properly" error

Had a bit of problem with my computer lately, was trying to install some CAD software when my computer froze, restarting was pretty much my only option - computer was not responding to anything. When the computer started up again all seemed fine, but msn will not start up.

I keep getting this error when trying to open msn:

msnmsgr.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004).
Click on OK to terminate the application.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, Done nothing. Also ran Registry Mechanic and Crap cleaner but they didn't help with this problem either.
