Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
After reading many other forums that said add this and that or delete this and that first but none of them worked until i found your advice, Brilliant worked first time thank you very much !!
I can not see any Windows Live components in programs list...
When I try to reinstall it, it shows that it is already installed on my computer, but it is not working!
Do not see it and can not uninstall it.
What to do? I need Messenger...
When my messenger was down I used www.ebuddy.com (not advertising) But thanks for your help I finally re installed messenger!
I consistantly kept tring to find how to uninstall but I couldn't figure it out.... and I am usually really smart when it comes to computers. So... I used google (not adv.) as a search engiane and I searched how to uninstall ''Windows Live''.... but I couldn't get a good answer until i came to Leo's sight.
P.S. If it wasn't for Leo I would be stuck right at this very moment!!!
What I did? I deleted all of its files. LOL

Awfully i didn't find any Windows Live Essentials in my add & remove programs i hope you can help me thanks
OMG! Thanks, you have relieved me of having to re-image my computer!
Okay guys i had the same problem as some of you. I wanted to uninstall windows live beta so i went to control panel and did it the obvious way. Later i decided i\'d made a hasty decision and wanted it back. So i went back to the site i downloaded it on and it didn\'t work. it said i still had it even though i swore i uninstalled it. Zapmessenger also didn\'t work for me and neither did those Run codes because the file i had deleted couldn\'t be found.
Finally after days of searching for the right solution i discovered a site and downloaded a program called Windows Install Clean Up which can be downloaded here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
This is completely safe, no viruses or anything if that\'s what some of you are worried about.
After it\'s downloaded go to Start, All Programs, look for Windows Install Clean Up. A box will come up with a list of every thing you have on your computer. Scroll down the list until you find Windows live Essentials, Windows live writer, Windows live Messenger and whatever else you want to get rid of. Select them one at a time and click delete. And that\'s it! you\'re done. From there you should be able to install whatever version of messenger you want.
This works seriously so try it:)
P.S i copied this message i wrote from another site, im trying to help as many people as i can who are having this issue as i realize trying to get rid of wlm 9 is almost impossible to do. i gaurantee this works.
It's good advice to remove the window live messenger but unfortunately, I could not remove it from my system. When I change/remove the Windows Live Essential, it didn't ask me to choose the program that I need to uninstall. After the Window Live Essential is removed, the Windows Live Messenger is still in my system. could you please give me more advices to solve this problem?
