How to downgrade from Windows Live Messenger 2011

So I downloaded Windows Live Messenger 2011 (included in Windows Live Essentials) but I absolutely hated it and missed my previous version. I decided to downgrade only to find out that was gonna take me a while. At first I tried only uninstalling Windows Live Messenger and not the whole Windows Live Essentials but that wouldn't let me install another version of I decided to get rid of the whole thing. I went to Control Panel and uninstalled the rest of Windows Live Essentials 2011.

I then restarted my computer and installed this file...wlsetup-all that can be found here:

Choose Download Windows Live Essentials (Messenger) 2009 – English (full)
I now have my favorite version of Windows Live Messenger back and running smoothly.
I forgot how great it was being able to draw, to adjust volume during a video call, having the nicer emoticons and more....


p.s. If you are having trouble when trying to install Windows Live Messenger 2009 (file wlsetup-all) you might wanna give ZapMessenger a try.
