..and yes, you can uninstall selected programs from Microsoft Live Essentials, leaving Live Mail if you choose.. See the link below:
Hope this helps.
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?
