If you've done everything described,

by seanferd In reply to Windows Live Messenger

run the installer cleanup wizard, deleted the program folder, etc., try this.

Download CCleaner http://www.piriform.com/
and install it.

Start CCleaner, click Tools, look for any instances of the Windows Live apps, click on each in turn, and attempt to uninstall. If they do not uninstall, select Delete Entry.

Once you are done with that, click the Registry button. Make sure most all options on the left are checked. (Fonts and Start Menu Ordering are unnecessary here.) Click Scan. When the scan is done, click Fix Selected Issues. When prompted to backup the entries, click Yes, click Save. Click Fix All Issues, answering positively to any further prompts.

Run the Registry cleaner again. Repeat until there are no scan results.

Attempt your new install now.

Note: CCleaner is pretty handy for its primary function (the Cleaner) as well. But keep it or uninstall it as you wish.

Is this a single computer?

by seanferd In reply to CCleaner

"A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:C:\WINDOWS\Installer\Photo Library.msi"

Of course, Windows may just be reporting this in a weird way. If you have followed the instructions from Microsoft, you probably already deleted that file and folder. If not, do so.

Maybe this would work better to remove the entry in Add/Remove:

ARPCache Viewer
http://www.superwin.com/index.htm

Install and run this, then look for your program entry/entries in the list. Highlight any entry and remove it. You can always undo the action if necessary.

Very nifty program ARP Cache Viewer however did remove C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe and then ran install program for Windows Live Messenger which came up with 2 errors: hr:0x80070643 & hr:0x80004004.Prior to this had tried to remove Windows Live Photo Gallery size 22.27MB from add/remove received same networking error.

So still the saga continues how to rid us of the above network error!!

Appreciate any help that can be given.....

It may be that there are still leftovers

by seanferd In reply to Windows Live Messenger

Here is a thorough walkthrough. Of course, you might skip any steps already completed. Any program files which have refused to uninstall, find in the Program Files directory and delete the folder manually.

Also, make sure you have the latest Dot Net Framework for XP installed (version 3).
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en

You have at least Service Pack 2 for XP installed, yes?

Do you meet all other requirements for installation?

Do you run a Windows Home Server?
