I went to Add & Remove program, I only see Windows Live Essentials but I'm not sure if it's the theme or the Live Messenger.

I don't know how to uninstall the them but Windows Live Essentials is a program pack that gives Windows Live Photo Gallery, Windows Movie Maker, Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Messenger.

Does the delete button work when you click Essential?

I didn't dare to click the delete button of Essential.

I don't know how to uninstall the them but Windows Live Essentials is a program pack that gives Windows Live Photo Gallery, Windows Movie Maker, Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Messenger.


Oh, speaking of Windows Live Mail, each time I going to hotmail, my msn icon starts appear on the right side of the windows bar. Is there a way to disable it each time I visit hotmail? (I don't want uninstall the messenger lol)

Well on a XP with no themes downloaded, it has all of the themes listed above, except essential. I guess it would be safe to delete it. But if you're nervous, make a system restore point just in case.

And for your second problem, I read this

And apparently, that is a feature. Do you use Internet Explorer? Because the feature can only work in it. I believe it's enabled by default and cannot be altered (I assume as I see no settings). I would recommend switching browser to
Firefox, Opera, or Chrome as they are faster and more secure if you haven't so already
