I tried looking in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSSoftwareMicrosoftWindows LivePhoto for a registry hey to delete but there was nothing there.
I alsdo deleted the file named Pictures.pd6 at C:Users[username]AppDataLocalMicrosoft Windows Photo Gallery but the tag suggestions are still there.
I heard there was a navtree file that you can delete but my computer does not have this file.
I don't use Windows Live Photo Gallery and other than a few links, I can't find a way to remove the tags. Here's a link however I think this is an older version of the gallery tool so it's probably no good to you:

@Steve Adobe Bridge definitely works for me and the more you use it the more useful it becomes, it makes me wonder why I overlooked it for so long.
It includes camera raw so if you have raw images it is easy to recover under and overexposed detail, literally you just drag a slider and the results are non-destructive.
It also works on jpegs, you can adjust the saturation or sharpness, fix colour noise, graining, colour cast and fringing all at the drag of a slider.
You can adjust specific tones and saturation levels just by dragging on an area of the image.
Bridge does so much that half the time I don’t even need to open Photoshop but images can easily be transferred if needed. You can also select multiple images and transfer them into Photoshop as layers of the same file.
As for adding tags to images I have now created several metadata templates in bridge containing masses of information which can be used to either append to existing metadata or replace it entirely across multiple images with just one click.
You can create your own categories and sub categories to filter images. Then it’s just a case of checking or unchecking the relevant boxes for each category or subcategory to display the images you are looking for.
You can also create and name collections of images for easy retrieval later. You can group images into stacks for easy viewing, display images in a Carousel format, create PDF contact sheets, web galleries and more.
I like it.
I've found Google Picasa to work really really well for facial tagging and you don't need to upload the tags to Google Picasa Web Albums either.
Safe, accurate and very easy!
