Change your Windows Live Passport password, uninstall Windows Live Messenger, then boot your computer into "Safe Mode with Networking" by pressing F8 repeatedly during start-up. Then open Internet Explorer with add-ons disabled by pressing Win+R (that's the Windows key between Ctrl and Alt, and R at the same time) then type in "iexplore.exe -extoff" (without the quotes) then hit enter. Now go to


Download and install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and at the end of the install, select to run and update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. After it updates, tell it to do a full scan of your computer and finally once that's done, select everything it finds then press "Remove Selected".

After that, download Windows Live Messenger directly from here:
