I'm on Windows 7 Home x64, and have ran into a major issue with Live Messenger(which I use daily).
I have full offline installers for both 2011 and the last Wave 3 2009(14.0.8117.0416) Suites. Both give the following errors:
Live Essentials 2011 Offline installer(official):
An unknown error occured. Error:0x8007064c Source WLXSuite
WL 2009 offline installer(official):
You already have a more recent version of Windows Live.
Next steps: If you want to install this older version, first uninstall any later versions that are on your computer.

The 2011 installer also says it is updating messenger, I don't select anything else. Then last 2009 installer says their is a newer version that needs uninstalled even after the following procedures.
- MS Help pages provided all basically lead to using uninstall from control panel. Which I've uninstalled all Live components including watcom safety scanner and portable SQL from.
- I've followed online instructions for manually deleting folders from Program Files(x86), Appdata, and some others under \User\All Users and the one for the one account on the machine.
- I've used CCcleaner 3.01, ASC 3.7.3 and Beta 4 with deep scan along with deleting folders, and checked their uninstallers for Live components too, and none were there.
- wlmuninstaller.exe tool reports nothing, but after a failed install it finds something, but failes to clean it under all user admin privilege.
The same errors still occur after all of that. Google searching I see people on forums suggesting reinstalling the OS cause MS doesn't even know how to fix this, but I'm hoping someone here can help.
NOTE: I don't have System Restore or any other state freeze utilities going, and I don't have any real time AV going(I sometime scan with defender, anti rootkits, and online scanners).
NOTE2:I posted this on windowslivehelp.com, before looking to see if the place was active or not, hoping I can get help here.
