Hi everyone!

I have this frustrating problem with an installation of Windows Live Essentials on a Windows 7 (64bit) machine. I previously had Windows Live Messenger and Mail installed, but then installed Microsoft Office Outlook to replace Windows Live Mail. I attempted to uninstall Windows Live Essentials to no avail. I think messed around it and have tried ever so many registry tweaks, cleaners and scripts to try and remove all traces of the Essentials suite. It seems completely uninstalled (even now I can see no sign of any Windows Live product).

On reinstalling Windows Live Essentials, I now get an error which is highly frustrating:

I have tried the fixes for similiar errors but yet again to no avail. I appreciate any answers :thumbsup:

Thanks
Jay

"Essentials" should be changed to "Messenger" in each place it appears in the subject and text because the problem/s discussed concern Windows Live Messenger, not Windows Security Essentials (Windows Live Essentials does not exist).

Yes it does exist. The poster isn't asking about MICROSOFT Security Essentials, which is anti-virus/anti-malware.

Windows Live Essentials is the applications suite which includes MSN Messenger, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Windows Live Writer, and a few other things.

I'm looking at Add Remove Programs, and Windows Live Essentials is listed, because I have a few of the components installed, and that is where they are listed in Add Remove.
