others come by... Hotmail/Live Mail has in the last couple of days started to offer fully encrypted mail (not just for login). Likely the update includes the updated encryption for the SSL connection. You still have to go to the site and confirm you want the higher security. See News post # 6 of 18 here:
There was some comment near end that some (parts?) of Live mail won't function w/ SSL.

I hope I'm in the right forum to make my inquiry. Since it involves a Windows Update and I think "security" when those come down the pike (LOL), that's why I'm in this forum.
Recently an update came down with the newest version of Windows Live Essencials 2011. I only use the email portion of Windows Live and nothing else. I checked the appropriate box to reflect that when doing Windows Update.
For some reason it will not take. It gives me no reason, just that it has failed. IF I am unable to get the latest update onto my pc, and continue using the "old" version of the Windows Live Mail program, is my pc at risk for bad things to happen -- emails get through with bad stuff?
I do use the Avast Free Version and have it set to scan all emails.
Just added info -- I also cannot get the latest Net Framework 4.0 installed, but have found that I really don't need it unless I use programs that require it -- and I do not.
Any thoughts on this please?
