Assuming you (or your computer manufacturer) have installed it, Go to the Start Menu-Control Panel-Programs and features- and uninstall it.

I did not install it. It is there when I bought a Windoes 7-installed computer from Dell. I checked "Uninstall or change a program" and
"Turn Windows features on or off". Live messenger is not listed.

"Windows Live Essentials" appears to be the umbrella uninstaller for Windows Live Messenger and all the other Windows Live products you may have installed. Click on its Change/Remove. You'll be asked if you want to Uninstall, or Repair a Windows Live program. Select Uninstall and click Continue. Then you'll get the list:
Make sure that Messenger is checked and click Continue.
At that point, it should be uninstalled.
