Same Exact Problem Here
I seem to have exactly the same situation as exlained by abigail65. Windows 7 Home Premium. Control Panel/Uninstall Program.... click on Windows Live..... box comes up "Repair or Remove a Windows Live Program".... click Remove & get window saying something like "requested program has been uninstalled".... No window popped up asking which Windows Live module(s) to uninstall. Windows Live Messenger still in programs list.... right click & click "Open file location".... Windows Explorer opens folder>> "C:/Program Files (x86)/Windows Live/Messenger... Folder shows all Messenger installed files inclucing "Msnmsgr.exe" executable program file. What gives???
