Windows live essentials manual uninstall?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i format my harddrive, reinstalled win7, downloaded the lastest version of windows live messenger. and i HATED the new version. (becuz now, my internet friends knows my real name ><)

so i tried downloadining an older version, but it says it cant install it cuz i already have a new one installed.

so in a FIT OF RAGE.......

i went to the program files folder and deleted the whole windows live essentials folder, and emptied the recycling bin. then ran ccleaner and cleaned up the registry.
i tried installing an older version of windows essentials again, and it keeps saying i still have the newer ones installed, so i went to the control panel, opened up programs and feature, and went through the list, BUT I COULDNT FIND WINDOWS LIVE ESSENTIALS.

so now i redownload the newer installer of essentials, and hope and pray it has some kinda repair function, but to my demise it says i already have live messenger installed.

so now i'm STUCK on how to remove completely windows live messenger and on how to install an older version of it.

anyone can help me? >______________<
