You doing it right!
The only thing is that folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
is hidden.
You can do this
Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

Or in that folder on your screenshot edit address bar and simply add
\.CACHE
at the end of the address + press Enter.

OMG woo thank you, it work.

Some rep coming your way

Do i have to keep those folder or can i delete them?

Also do you know if there is a way of hiding a specific picture folder in Photo gallery?

Also if i wanted to remove it later on, how would i? as it doesnt not appear in the Live uninstaller.

I believe that C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
folder is safe to delete, since it is only temporary cache.

As for removal, solution is a bit weird, but 100% working. In order to get rid of MS Live installed this unusual way, you need to INSTALL the same MS LIVE regular way on top and then uninstall it regular way from Programs and Features. Uninstaller should delete both.

I am not sure what do you mean by that (I am not actually using Photo gallery much). Screenshot would help. PM me if required.

Well it wont let me PM you, so i will try and ask in better detail.

You know how photo gallery get all your picture from the my Picture folder, is there a way to only select what folder from my Pictures you want. I have some sub-folders that i dont want included.

I know you dont use live gallery often, and you've been great help

Sorry, PM was blocked, it is working now.

I believe that it is not possible to "hide" sub-folders from showing in Photo Gallery.
As a solution I would suggest move those folders elsewhere, but have links to them in My Pictures folder.
Photo Gallery ignores links.
