    I have Windows Essentials -Photo gallery, Writer, Mail, Messenger and Call installed in my system.

    I do not use any of them. I cannot uninstall them. I've started a thread about the removal but anyways, they just sit there doing nothing.

    I just wanted to know if you guys have the same experience.

    Best Wishes,

    I remember Windows Live being a pain in the ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ to uninstall and reinstall before, i know how it is for you, I think it has improved, not sure though, I use Total Uninstall to deal with stubbon programs nowdays.
    I use the Mail client, works good.

    If you make a full system backup before installing something like that, removal is as easy as restoring that backup. Uninstallers are unreliable and often leave a lot behind.

    Regarding the poll question, I don't have Windows Live or anything else that MS considers "essentials" on any of my systems.

    Yes, I have Windows Live Mail installed, been using that for a long time instead of Outlook.

    No I do not, it doesn't serve a purpose for me.

    Me too. Serves me well. I had some weird issues with Outlook 2007, so I changed over to Live Mail and like it a lot.

    Messenger, Live Mail and Photo Gallery here. Mail and photo gallery are surprisingly good if your tied to the MS Live ecosystem, messenger is a bit clunky.

    Cheers, Nick.

    I use Windows Live Mail religiously and I install Windows Live Messenger even though I rarely use it now ( I guess it is habit, I mostly use Facebook chat now which can also be added to messenger).

    I never install movie maker or the other things.

    I love Mail. I like it better than any email client I have ever used. I have been using it since it was called Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta years ago.

    I quite like Windows Live. It's a tad heavy on my notebook though. Sometimes it's easier just to have Hotmail on a bookmark.
     
  17. Same WLM only, but I did have Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant on Windows 7.

    Since I upgraded to Windows 8 RP, it's only WLM. :D
