Preferred Solution: Windows Live Essentials installation issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not sure if normal discussion, non-question threads are allowed, but...

Seriously, Windows Live Essentials is such a hassle to install / uninstall / reinstall.

When I went to delete Messenger to attempt a re-install, it wasn't listed in add or remove programs, so then I had to go delete the folder in Program Files x86.

Then I had issues with the Windows Live Essentials thinking it was still installed. Even CCleaner wasn't enough to get rid of whatever it was tricking the installer into thinking it still existed.

In the end, it took a long time of browsing forums and so forth until I had to use third party tools to get it to work. People have had to develop their own dedicated tools for this specific problem.

Seriously, Microsoft, the creators of the Windows OS, and one of the most established companies in the world, should not have such crappy problems. I'm so annoyed that I actually had to rant somewhere about it.

But, for future reference, is there any more simple way of repairing MSN without going through all this again?

If anyone here knows anyone that has anything to do with the development of Live Messenger : Pass this info up. It's seriously a headache to deal with. I love the features of the programs themselves - the Essentials Antivirus is enough to protect anyone's computer (who won't download dumb crap) and messenger is good (except blocking people in nearly impossible now). It's just the installation that's so...crap, really. You shouldn't be nearly forced ... Read more

I downloaded Windows Live Essentials for the messenger but now I would like to unistall it. I went to Uninstall/Change Programs in my control panel to uninstall it and I noticed a program called Windows Live Mesh activex control for remote connections. What is that for? and can I uninstall that as well? My dilemma here is that I cannot seem to uninstall Windows Live Essentiials. I double clicked on it in the Uninstall/Change Programs list and and was given a window that gave me the options:
1)remove one or more Windows Live Programs
2)Repair all Windows Live Programs

I clicked on the first option but it never let me choose which programs to uninstall. It just quickly flashed a window that said "uninstalling" and then it showed me "Done! Your programs you selected have been uninstalled." I didn't get to select anything to uninstall though. In the end, Windows Live essential is still installed and I can't get rid of it.

Any suggestions guys?

A:Uninstalling Windows Live Essentials and windows live mesh activex control for remote connections

Someone else will have to advise you regarding Windows Live Mesh. I know nothing about that. For Windows Live Essentials: If you cannot remove WLE using add remove programs try Revo Uninstaller. If I remember correctly it will not ask which components you want to remove.Here is how to use Revo Uninstaller: 1) First we download it from here: Revo Uninstaller Free Version. Scroll down the page for the free version download. You can skip this Step if you already have it installed. However, you may need to update it. If you have it installed already, and you need to update it, go ahead and open it up and click the AutoUpdate Icon next to Help. The use of this program makes registry changes based upon what you select for removal from the Registry. Before running Revo Uninstaller please run ERUNT before proceeding to back up your registry in case you make a mistake. 2) Select the Program to remove from the list of programs and click the Uninstall button: 3) After selecting the program you want to remove, and confirming you want to uninstall the program, then you will want to select the Advanced Option: 4) Click Next. This will start the uninstaller for the application you picked. When the uninstaller is done, and it proves to be successful, and a reboot is required, then select NO and continue the below steps. 5) Follow the prompts during the uninstallation of the application. Once it closes you will be at this window: 6) Click Next again. Once the window is do... Read more

I am trying to uninstall Windows Live Essentials. I have tried to uninstall it through the control panel but that doesn't work. Windows live mail crashes every time I try to open an email with an attachment that can only be opened by windows live mail. So I figured that if I could remove the entire suite of windows live essentials and then reinstall it I could fix the problem. Other than using a big hammer I wonder how I can ever remove windows live essentials. Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone know if Microsoft is going to replace Windows Live Essentials as I heard on a cnet message forum administrator that Microsoft will no longer offer that suite or programs?

I used to use Windows Live Writer to blog but I needed more features, especially with uploading a set of pictures to a gallery in a post as if it were being uploaded to WordPress' gallery themselves.

Windows Live Mail and Live Writer have been awesome and since Windows Live Messenger was replaced by Skype, is it possible for Microsoft to replace Live Writer, Live Mail and other Live products?

I heard a while back that MS was dropping the "Live" branding on their products and I think they were re branding a lot of stuff with the "MSN" brand. Time will tell.

Hello everyone...
Love you, hope you can help me,
I have been using Windows Live Essentials for a long time, until i started to have issues with it (many of them), so i have moved on to alternative software. (For e-mails i use strictly IncrediMail now, happy with it).
One of the issues was with Family Safety app - i installed it, used it, moved on to Norton Parental Control, the problem is every time i removed Family safety from my live account it kept coming back (just like in old horror movies), instead of Jason X i got Family Safety X, how bout Family Safety VS Norton Parental Control for a nice horror flick?
So i had to msconfig and just disable it there 9 not really a solution)
My major issue is that i can not uninstall Windows Live Essentials, and i have tried everything. Could not do it from control panel add remove programs, could not do it with the original install file, there is just no such option.

What should i do, i really want to get rid of it.

Thanks a lot in advance...

1. I have uninstalled live essential and it has taken out messenger that i use everyday..

2. Is there a standalone messenger version for 2010 or 2011 and where can i download it from. Without the essential package

When thinking about it will i still get that shitty essential package again with a standalone version of msn messenger, reason why i'm saying this is because a friend of mine recently installed msn messenger and he got the essential package and what annoys me is why is microsoft bundling programs together...

If you have any previous versions of Windows Live essentials installed the Windows will want to update it. As it's optional you don't need to install it if you don't want to. The size is the estimated size once ALL items have been installed.

Hello Seven Forums,

I started out with Win7Pro that just had Windows Live Mail. Then came along Windows Live Mail Essentials 2011 which reported to the greatest thing since the wheel. However I really do not like the program, especialy the NAG to long into Windows Live using my ID etc. I have not been able to remove that NAG so I want to remove the essentials part but KEEP the garden variety of Windows Live Mail. 6 moths ago I did this but it removed windows live mail so had to download it from Microsoft and re-install it, so I would like a better uninstall so as to keep windows live Mail only. Can anyone suggest a simple way to do that. I have exported what messages I want to keep along with my address book.

I would appreciate any help with this. I have another question but is unrelated so will post another message for that question.

If these are coming up through Windows Update, you need to update Silverlight (a browser plugin), but installing Windows Live Essentials is optional. You can right-click and "Hide update" if you don't want a particular update to show up again.Live Essentials has some decent software in it, but if you don't want it, feel free to decline it.Silverlight should stay up to date, however, so let that one install.

Hi...
I'm relatively new to Win 7 Home Premium (64-bit) and have just discovered it doesn't include Windows Movie Maker which was on XP.
However, I noticed online Windows Movie Maker 2.6 is supposed to work with the above.
It downloaded fine but when I went into 'All Programs' and clicked on Windows Movie Maker, nothing happened.
I noticed also the icon next to it was a blank one and not a 'Windows' one.
Checking Add/Remove (I actually use Revo) the program was definitely installed.
Nevertheless, I uninstalled then reinstalled. No joy. I then uninstalled it completely.
I then noticed Windows Live Essentials contains the Movie Maker.
I selected only the 'Photo & Movie Maker' from the list and downloaded.
However, the same thing happened as with Windows Movie Maker 2.6. Also, same blank icon.
I must be missing something simple here.
Can anyone help?
Many thanks

I just downloaded and installed Windows Live Essentials 2011. When I tried to watch a movie I have in my media library through my WDLive TV device it would not let me login to network shares. After some investigating I uninstalled Windows Live Essentials 2011 completely and was again able to log into network shares on my WDtv Live.

Evidently there is a problem between WDTV Live and Windows Live Sign in Assistant in Windows Essentials Live 2011 and it blocks access through my WDTV. I could not find any way to just uninstall the sign in assitant so have totally uninstalled Windows Live Essentials for now.

I'm on Windows 7 with a DV7 64 bit laptop. I'm having problems with Windows Live Mail because when I click on inbox, sent. deleted etc nothing happens. The only way I can get to my mail is to use 'Find' or to go to my Plusnet account. All of this is a nuisance.

However, when I try I can't bring up the windows which would enable me to do so. ( see 'How to remove and reinstall Windows Live Rssentials - I can't get past 3 and 'uninstall' doesn't happen) Could this be because there is a slight modification to the Hp supplie software, and if so Can anyone tell me how I can uninstall then reinstall.

2.) Searched for these with Find Everything and uninstalled all of them.

Mail.msi
MailLang.msi
Companion.mui.msi

WindowsLiveSync.msi

3.) Then what I did was run Windows Update and installed Windows Live Essentials 2011 rebooted.

Then I got the Installer back in Program/Features and ran it and Repaired it. Everything is running fine now.

The correct way to remove AVG 2011 is through its program folder via Start > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs / Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7.If for some reason the AVG uninstall failed using the normal method of Add/Remove, download and run the latest AVG installation file as described here. As noted on that page, do not use the AVG Removal tool which is intended for versions prior to 2011. When the AVG Installer windows appears choose the option to Remove and click Continue to allow the AVG 2011 uninstaller to run. Restart the computer when done.As a last resort you can use the uninstall/cleanup utility (AVG Remover) provided in AVG 2011+9.0+8.x Uninstall/Re-Install Instructions. After restarting and removing the folders, stop where instructed to Stop here if not re-installing.AVG Remover eliminates all the parts of your AVG installation from your computer, including registry items, installation files, user files, etc. AVG Remover is the last option to be used in case the AVG uninstall / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.AVG Download Tools: AVG RemoverIMPORTANT NOTE: Before removing your existing anti-virus, you should download and save the setup file for the anti-virus you are going to replace it with. After doing that, disconnect from the Internet, uninstall your current anti-virus, reboot and then install the replacement. Reboot again to ensure it is working properly before reconnecting to the Internet.

I usually use Skype, but sometimes I use Windows Live Messenger. One day, I saw a newer version of this program, so here's what I did:
1) I downloaded the newest version
2) Installed.
When I was installing it, it deleted the old version. When I was installing the new version it installed in about 0.000000001 second. I was like: WT* . But when I click Close, nothing opens (The installation said, that if I click close, it will open). Then I opened Start --> Clicked All Programs --> Searched for a folder named Windows Live or something --> Found it --> Empty.

What should I do?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Which site did you download the updated version from?

Was it a genuine Microsoft site?

Something certainly doesn't sound right so I'd be inclined to run an anti-virus scan, and then use Microsoft's system restore to a point in time before you downloaded the update.

Malwarebytes is pretty good for this job.

You can get the latest version of Windows Live Messenger here.

I get a pop up that says that I have updates to install. One is Windows Live Essentials 2011. When I try to download it, I get a msg that says: " Couldn't install programs. You already have different build flavor of Windows Live." Then under help I get " \If you want to install this version, first uninstall the version on your computer." I checked and Windows Live Essentials 2011 KB2434419 is listed several times as follows: Failed 10/21, successful 10/21, successful 10/27, successful 10/28. The pop up also has Error: 0x80280008.

If Live is already installed, why do I get an update notice? Do I need to uninstall all the other downloads? I have a folder Windows Live but no sub-folder or other folder that shows Live Essentials. Windows Live shows 30 updates over the last month or so. Do I need to uninstall the Windows Live Program. I have an uninstall program, Revo Uninstaller, that shows a Windows Live Essentials Program. Should I uninstall it? Basically, how many of these should I uninstall? Or how can I get the notice to download to stop appearing?

Thanks!

Looking for a direct link to a windows live installation that is direct and offline?

Links would be appreciated, I cant seem to find any thanks...

A:Windows live essentials Offline...

Here you go: Essentials - Windows Live

That is pretty much a direct link.

Not sure what you mean by an offline link though. Are you looking for a source other than Microsoft's site?

How can I do this completely?
I ask because I have uninstalled the programme via the Control Panel but when I try to reinstall I am getting various errors , some of which refer to updating the junk filter which is in the Windows Live Mail.
I imagine that with a clean uninstall that this error would not appear .
But would a 100% clean uninstall mean the loss of all my emails?

thanks

A:uninstalling windows live essentials

If you don't want the junk filter, stop using Email & revert to writing letters.
