Windows 7: Windows Live Messenger Issues

If the build number is the same, yes, you can try just copying the .exe file and see if it works.

Some Live Essentials installations get "corrupted" i.e. you're unable to uninstall them if you used, for example, Ccleaner to remove the actual setup files needed for uninstallation. Did you try downloading a fresh copy of the Essentials installer from their website and using that to uninstall? I clearly remember a message in Ccleaner telling me that if I remove those setup files, I must have a new copy of the Essentials installer in order to remove those programs instead of just running the uninstaller already on your PC.
