How to Uninstall Windows Live Mail

I want to remove Windows Live Mail but it's not listed In Programs and Features. I can't find an uninstaller listed any where. How do you remove this thing from your computer. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Hello squid,

Windows Live Mail is part of Windows Live Essentials. Run the uninstaller for Essentials, and you can choose which components to remove.

Hope this helps,

Jonathan_King i tried it with a foolish way... 1st deleted WLM(windows live mail) folder from program files, then shortcuts & then WL essentials. Actually i wanted to reinstall... & now whenever i run wlive installer it shows that i already have WLMail & WLMessenger.

i also deleted it from regedit but problem is same.

Does the program still show up in Programs and Features? If so, download Revo Uninstaller, and thoroughly uninstall it.

Then try reinstalling.

To Jonathan_King,

I'm having the same problem as squid.
How do you find Windows Live Essentials uninstaller, though?

I'm getting that 'Essentials' doesn't exist on my computer, yet I have all the stuff it comes with.

Thanks

Hello tunasandwich and welcome to the forums.

x64: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Installer

x86: C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Installer

Look in there for wlarp.exe.

If not you can always download the setup from there site.
