Windows 7: Live Mail installation window pops up when I click icon in taskbar

Live Mail installation window pops up when I click icon in taskbar

I made a bad mistake. I wanted to install Movie Maker but it comes packaged with Live something or other, and it includes Live Mail, the newest version. Now, I do not have Movie Maker, don't even ask! But I have a newer version of Live Mail which I dislike -- that ribbon!

Can I uninstall the Live software and reinstall the old Live Mail? This install window that pops up is very annoying and if I click cancel it still loads Live Mail. I saw a similar case some time ago when I opened MSN Messenger.

I have another issue with System Restore but I will post it separately.

Thanks

Roxy

I think you can find versions of Movie Maker that have no connection at all with Live anything.

Movie Maker 6 from Vista works fine on Windows 7. You can find it on any Vista disk. Or maybe Google for Movie Maker 2.6.

Can you do a System Restore to a date prior to installing whatever you wish you hadn't?

You should be able to uninstall Live Mail Essentials 2011 in Uninstall a Program in your Control Panel.

Windows Live Movie Maker is available here.

Hello Roxy,

If you like, you could hide the ribbon in Windows Live Mail 2011 to see how you like it afterwards.
