You can grab the full installer by installing it on a machine via Windows Update. Once you see the splash screen for the Windows Essentials installation, simply navigate to "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\Install" and copy off the "wlsetup-all.exe" file for version 2011.
The application can not be virtualized as it contains system level service named "Windows Live SignIn Assistant"
It seems that installing MovieMaker without Photogallery is 'unpossible'.
get the wlsetup-all.exe (e.g. from here: http://www.compit.se/?p=134 ) and try the following:

To Uninstall all pakages at once use the wlarp.exe in C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Installer with tthe /quiet parameter. For me using this file in its origin doesn't work. I had to copy it onto the server.
