Error 80040154: Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed

When trying to use Windows Live Messenger, A family member was getting the message "Error 80040154: Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." after I applied pending updates to Microsoft Windows. The recommended solution provided at Microsoft's Error 80040154: Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later., which was the page that came up when I chose the help option, was to uninstall Windows Live Essentials. The system was running Windows 7, so I clicked on Start, Control Panel, Programs and Features, and looked for Windows Live Essentials, but it wasn't there.

At How to uninstall Windows Live Essentials, there was a suggestion to try removing the program by running wlarp.exe from %programfiles%\Windows Live\Installer, but, though that directory existed, that file was not in it.

So I downloaded Windows Live Essentials 2011 from Windows Live Essentials 2011 - Download free Microsoft programs. The file that was downloaded was wlsetup-web.exe. When I reinstalled the software using that file, the problem no longer existed.
