Windows Live

Windows Live is a suite of programs that include Mail and Messenger. Be prepared for a long wait while the program installs. As usual it is bloatware and might not install properly if you don't have the correct version of the Windows installer program that manages Windows program installations! This and a set of other programs such as Messenger come under the Windows Live umbrella.

I couldn't install the program due to a Windows Installer error which lots of people have and is a real pain in the neck.

Download the latest version here. There is also a nice matrix of the different versions.

Windows Live Mail

Windows Live Mail is the replacement program for Outlook Express, although nowhere on its website does it say so.

Windows Messenger


A-Patch allows you to remove all the components you don't want from Windows Messenger.

Internet Explorer 7

It disables your Outlook Express to Hotmail connection and you need to download a patch to fix the error - WindowsXP-KB904942-v2-x86-ENU.exe. A pity IE7 does not warn you when you install it - how easy would that be!
