Whenever I log on, Live Messenger pops up and asks me to sign in. I don't have any friends that use Windows Live, so I don't need Live Messenger. How do I uninstall Windows Live Messenger without uninstalling all of the Windows Live Essentials?

You can go to Add/Remove Programs (or the Programs and Features section); when you select "Windows Live Essentials", the option is not Uninstall, it is "Uninstall/Change"

If you click Uninstall, you are able to choose the individual programs you wish to remove, in this case Windows Live Messenger.
