Try right clicking the installation executable and choose Run As Administrator. By default, even an administrator account in Vista doesn't run with administrator privledges unless you elevate the action using user account controls.

    Try downloading the program from here:

    Save the file to the desktop, then right click, RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (IF using WIndows Vista), if not using Vista just run the file.

I can't install windows live messenger, it encounter a network error while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\Messenger.msi

I found the site below and thought of your situation. Here is the message I received:
"Network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:

Error Reporting Keeps Showing!!!

Boot into Safe Mode and see if the computer will let you uninstall Windows Live. If it does, reboot the computer into normal mode and Re-Download the installation files for Windows live. Are there any details or technical information provided when the error message shows up? Also, outdated drivers have been known to cause similar issues.
