After installing Windows Live Photo Gallery, I still have the Vista built-in gallery lying around ... is there any way to completely get rid of it (ideally, uninstall) and only use the Live photo gallery for all image viewing?

Thats it.. Windows Photo gallery is now disabled
Just right click on the image you want to open and where it says "open with" choose the program of your choice. This will then become the default program for opening that type of image.
