Windows Live Messenger/MSN (Or Any Program) Refuses to Open

Usually this happens because there is already a msnmsgr.exe process open in the task manager.  To remedy this, open up the task manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del and clicking Task Manager, or Start > Run > taskmgr.

Find all instances of msnmsgr.exe and end those processes, and then reopen the program

This fix is usually applicable to programs other than MSN.  In a way it is also a general solution for programs refusing to open.
