First, you mean you installed Microsoft Security Essentials, correct?  Windows Live Essentials is a suite of different products (mail, photo gallery, messenger, movie maker).  Security Essentials is to be downloaded fromwww.microsoft.com/security_essentials .

If so, you must remove OneCare.  Then, you must use the OneCare cleanup tool in this thread:List of anti-malware program cleanup/uninstall tools

Then, you may have to reinstall Security Essentials.

Regarding Choice Guard, review this thread:  http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msestart/thread/71fd720e-5fc1-460b-ba78-5f2eafbf3eba

And, if you have any other problems, you should probably open a support case with Microsoft: https://support.microsoftsecurityessentials.com/Default.aspx?scrx=1&st=1&wfxredirect=1
