Unhandled exception for links in Windows Live Messenger

description

When I click on any link within a Windows Live Messenger (MSN messenger), it gives me an unhandled exception.
 
Here are the details.
 
 
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.
 
For example:
 
<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>
 
When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Exactly the same here.
I made the "Browser Chooser.exe.config" with jitDebugging enabled and clicked a link in live messenger (Ver: 2009 Build 14.0.8117.416) no exception come up, but created an (not too helpful) error report (attached to this comment)
This is a great tool! Please fix this bug someday :)

Keep up the good work!
