Go to my website and

This will work 100 procent correct..

Some files of Windows Live Messenger are always left one computer even if you had uninstalled that program !
This program removes all files that had came with that program and other !!

When i tried to remove exemple Adobe Dreamweaver CS 3, i had tried many kinds of uninstallers for programs..
This uninstall program works when it is registerd !!

I instale perfect unistaler but they ask me for the key and that I need to register on that. I don want, so how can I get the key?
Well if you have windows 7 go into the windows icon at the bottom of the screen, then go into control panel. Now just look about and you should see unistall programe, and that should be at the bottom of the open window. Now you should see unistal programe near the top, click on that. Ok now it should come up with all your diffrent items and just look for windows live essentilas. Press that and you should just see all the windows live items that you have on your computer. At the top you should see windows live mesenger click on the that and then unistall and that should take windows live messinger off you computer.

THANK YOU! I feel so silly as it has taken me months to uninstall msn messenger!!
thank you.. I didnt know it was hidden in "essentials" awesome!
To stop MSN messanger from starting up, click on search, trype: msconfig go to start up go to windows live un click the tic, then apply, click ok, then it will ask you to reboot, should be done
That ms config is good to control programs if one of them is causing conflics with your computer
i cant uninstall it anyway
