  1. I cant install Windows live messenger. I uninstalled the program a while back and now im trying to reinstall it. The download program says the Windows Live Messenger is already installed on my computer. There must be some files still left on my hard drive but I cant find them. does anyone know what I need to delete manually so I can reinstall this program?
