    Enstalling windows 7 Live Essentials.

    I recently decided on certain Windows Live Essential programs that I wanted to install on my HP computer. There were only 3 programs that could be unchecked (deselected) since I did not want them: Windows Live Mesh, Messenger Companion, and Family Safety. There was no option to deselect Messenger, Photo Gallery/Movie Maker, Bing Bar, Mail, and Writer. I only wanted Gallery/Movie Maker and Mail programs. Is there any way to delete messenger, bing bar and writer programs from my computer? Windows 7 is driving me nuts. Thank you.

    I would suggest uninstalling the Windows Live Essentials you installed through Control Panel, Programs and Features, then download and install the components you wish from this page.

    Look over your system carefully to ensure that they are not already on your computer.

    A no deselect option means that more than likely the programs in question are already on your system and slated to
    be upgraded to a newer version of themselves, hence not being able to deselect any of them.

    Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and double click Windows Live essentials. Follow the prompts and you should be able to uninstall the apps you don't want.
