    I found an easy method to Uninstall Windows Live Messenger 2009 Beta. Goto Start > Run and type the following command and press enter - this starts the uninstaller.
    Code:
    msiexec /x {B1403D7D-C725-4858-AACC-7E5FA2D72859}

    Hello,

    1) Uninstall Windows Live Messenger via Add / Remove Programs.

    2) Get Windows Install Clean Up and installs it

    • Start Menu>> All Programs> Windows Install Clean Up.
    • In the search window and select any lines that begin with "(All Users) Windows Live."
    • Click on "Remove."

    Best regards.

    actually i've found that it's better to uninstall windows live messenger completely and then reinstall it.....the best way to do that is to open the folder where you saved all the msn files the open the installer folder and one of those installers let's you choose if u want to repair or uninstall.....after a few minutes ta-da! you've successfully uninstalled windows live messenger 2009.
