If your Windows Live Messenger does not appear in your add/remove programs use this tip to remove it from your system.

Go to the Start button, select run, and copy/paste the following into the box :

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

Click OK and the above command will run for a few seconds before disappearing.

There will not be any popup windows or notifications that the uninstall completed. You're done!
