Tech: Uninstall Windows Live Messenger on Windows 7

Windows Live Messenger isn’t visible in the Programs and Features list in Windows 7, however Windows Live Essentials is, and clicking it will open a menu that will allow you to uninstall Live Messenger.  I really dislike the interface on Messenger, but I put up with it so I could use the voice and video chat services.  However messenger recently started starting itself and opening up chat windows randomly so it is now banned from my system.  I’ll use Pidgin instead, or try to convince my coworkers to use Google Talk.
