When you went to Uninstall programs, did you click on Turn Windows features on or off?

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

it's listed in Programs and Features as Windows Live Essentials..

- if you click the option to uninstall, you get a list of programs that come with the Windows Live suite..

- select Messenger from the list, and the uninstall will take place, leaving the remaining components on your machine..
