Windows Live Messenger (formerley MSN messenger) is a hugely popular instant messaging client. Ever since it got re branded with this whole Windows Live thing, Microsoft ceased to provide standalone installer for it. That means, you have to download a small setup file called the windows live installer and then select the Windows Live products you want downloaded. The installer then downloads the selected products over the web.

This is all fine unless you have a computer that has limited connectivity to Internet (you pay per minute for Internet connection, you have a very slow connection etc). It can be a bitch to download the 16MB setup file over the web after each install on such connections. Fortunately, the standalone installer is still here.
