Error Reporting Keeps Showing!!!

Boot into Safe Mode and see if the computer will let you uninstall Windows Live. If it does, reboot the computer into normal mode and Re-Download the installation files for Windows live. Are there any details or technical information provided when the error message shows up? Also, outdated drivers have been known to cause similar issues.

Windows Live Messenger wont show up in add/remove programs to delete it as a Debug Error keeps coming up how could i delete it !?!?!?!

You could try to download and install it again,

or run the command line to uninstall it

Click Start
paste the below line and click OK
msiexec /x {0AAA9C97-74D4-47CE-B089-0B147EF3553C}

If that does not work you can try the ZapMessenger utility (works for some not others)

Not the first time you start outlook Express or anything, it may take a while, it may need to reconfigure to work without messenger
