    That's the same as this:

    Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials

    It loads the file download

    How did you uninstall in the first place?

    Does not make any sense to me that Windows Essentials is installed if not listed in the Programs and Features installed program list.

    I just completed an install, uninstall, reinstall, and uninstall of movie maker and photo gallery with no issue.

    How about this:

    Do the previously mentioned folders exist?

    You have to clear/remove the orphaned entries of Windows Live Essentials (and/or component Messenger, Movie Maker, etc.) in the Windows Registry.

    It will be a tedious task but not insurmountable. Good luck.

    It seems Ccleaner could remove un-needed registry entries.?

    And just a note.
    When I installed the new Movie Maker I already had an older version installed.
    Now I have 2 functional Movie Makers.

    Thanks to mdmd for clarifying the link I posted was the same.
