Serious problems encountered with windows live!!

Hello there, i've previously posted a similar thread, but ive clicked the resolved button , as NO ONE seemed to be able to resolve the problem for me, but i'll give it another go.

I had to uninstall windows live, and all its features, i.e messenger, photo gallery, writer, windows live toolbar, etc, about 2 weeks ago, and i used add/remove programs, and REVO uninstaller to remove all of it, and any leftovers. Noe what happens, i've go back to install windows live from scratch, and then it says download complete, and that ALL the programs are installed BUT when i go to all programs on my pc.....all i see is the windows live page, and then when i click on messenger, it downloads it AGAIN, but nothing happens. The main thing i need back is windows live messenger, BUT no joy for me. i really dont know what to do......i keep trying to download, again , but still same thing..the programs are NOT showing on my desktop. pls help!!!!!

Hi smackheadz, i have cc cleaner installed, but the windows live program is not showing on cc cleaner, so i guess its not there as i already used revo uninstaller and add/remove programs,. ...or what do u suggest that i do again with cc cleaner??

firstly run the cleaner then click on registry and scan for issues,back up the registry when prompted

Try a system restore to before you first downloaded windows live.

hello rdave 13 i did try system restore last week, but it seemed to be messing with my KIS 2009 internet security, as it says that it was corrupted, and my internet securityis more importnat so i had to set it back again, but even then, when i did the system restore, the problem still seemed to persist.
Smackheadz ive used the regisrey thing. so what do u suggest i try now?? try and install again? i'd like another suggestion first please
