Advice re uninstalling Windows Live Essentials 2011

by michhala / April 2, 2011 7:38 AM PDT

New computer came with Windows Live Essentials 2011, plus I have a large Windows Update for it waiting in the wings. I would like to uninstall all the Windows Live programs and possibly keep Windows Live Mail in the event I might one day use it...or not. I also have MS Outlook on my computer.

Is there any reason why I need to keep the Windows Essentials 2011 family?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

The link you provided has been in my Favs for a week Happy Although it is not always obvious, I research before I post here; but having said that, I still feel the need to get an educated opinion before I take any action.
