Windows 7: Too many folders

12 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 8.1.1 Pro 64-bit

Is this the version of Windows Live Essentials you have?

Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3505.0912)
No. I have ver. 2011 Build 15.4.3555.0308 I just downloaded that in May.

I thought that was the latest ver. I went to the web site and downloaded it again. They don't tell you which ver. it is. I haven't installed it yet to see which ver. it is. Do you have to uninstall the old ver. first?

Thanks Clint

No you don't need to uninstall the old one first. I didn't and had no issues.

The latest update of Windows Live Essentials has fixed that issue. Those folders will no longer appear.
Thanks pbcopter, I think it's fixed now. I installed the latest update and deleted the folders again. It's been around a week now and none have come back. Thanks again. I wonder why that don't come in Windows update? Looks like at the web site they would tell you which ver. is available, instead of guessing which one it is. Thanks to all that answered.
