Windows live mail is not reinstalling

hi, i want to reinstall WLM(windows live mail)...whenever i run wlive installer it shows that i already have WLMail & WLMessenger on my system. actually i've done a foolish thing... that i deleted WLM folder from program files, then shortcuts & then WL essentials from prgrams & features.

i also deleted it from regedit but problem is same.

If you uninstalled it a few days ago, try to use sytem restore, from a point prior to the uninstallation.

It should be returned and then we can decide on the next step.

Lets try this. Make a system restore points, in case a small problem turns into a big one

Try number 3 and 4.

Three is bascially what has been tried, but give it another .

Then try 4. Hopefully this will get rid of all remanants of WLM

Be sure your have a system restore point made in case number 4 does more than we want.

I will post as I get ideas. I just remembered, WLM appears as Windows Live Essentials in CP, does that show?

Control Panel>programs>Windows Live Essentials.
