Start

Windows Live Essentials
Click change/remove
It will then give you the option to pick which ''essentials" you want to remove. Ex:Messenger, Mail, Photo

Or Try this:

1/ Click the Start button
2/ When the Start menu opens look to the Right of the menu and you should see an option called 'Run'
3/ Click on Run to open the Run dialogue box
4/ In the Run dialogue box type: RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
5/ Next press the OK button
6/ If all goes well you will be asked to restart your computer. Click Yes to restart
7/ Hopefully Messenger should now be removed

Incidentally you might find it easier to 'copy and paste' the above command line into the Run dialogue box rather than typing it yourself.

Or you can try this third party Windows Live Messenger Uninstaller.
blog.eddsn.com » Windows Live Messenger Uninstaller v0.01

Or you can try the Windows Live Solution Center.
Windows Live Solution Center
Error: could not locate INF file 'C:\Windows\INF\msmsgf.inf'.

Hang in there ZeroManArmy, I'm countin' on ya. Same problem here. Microsoft is the 500 lb gorilla, but with enough tenacity this Live crap can (say it's true!) be removed.

If not, we can move to Europe. The EU doesn't stand for Microsoft restricting trade or bullying users.

I look forward to seeing if any of these Windows "geniuses" (thank you, Apple) can get you through what should be a very simple issue--removing a f'ing program or two. Ever tried removing a program from an Apple system? Takes less than three seconds and always seems to work. But I digress (and dream).

Hi ZeroMan

Take a look @ this site, maybe it will help:

Installation error 0x80070643 or 0x800706d9: You need to turn on Windows Firewall
OR try this one

and attention to the RESOLUTION part

Good luck
