Windows 7: Good Substitute Software for Windows Live Essentials

Good Substitute Software for Windows Live Essentials

Have been using the Windows Movie Maker and Live Photo Gallery components of Window Live Essentials since
original install of Windows 7 that happened in 2013. Have just done a fresh install of Windows 7 and wanted to reinstall them through download installer. Problem is they just will not install. After downloading the installer and running it things progress to about 1/3rd of install process and then just sit there with no further progress.

Am aware Microsoft is phasing out Window Live Essentials so can someone tell me how to obtain Windows Movie Maker and Live Photo Gallery OR alternatively recommend Microsoft or other product that are similar
to these two. I am not wanting super complex/elaborate software for these purposes and I liked these two as they were basic without being bare-bones; nor where they overly elaborate and beyond my needs such as say something like Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Thx in advance....GAry

Hi WHS can you tell me if the Fast Stone Image Viewer will allow one to have several pictures opened at same time with separate window for each picture. Also most image software will allow reversion of edited image back to its original state...do you know the folder location where originals are kept.

Have been using VLC for years and love it but I was not looking for a video player but a video editor much like Windows Movie Maker. Any suggestions? Thx..Gary

Here is an editor that I use because it is lossless. But it has certain restriction. You cannot mix apples and oranges.

Thanks all for your help. I will look into that software as they sound good. In meantime have been able to install Windows Live Essentials which is the problem that started my query. Recently did fresh install of W7 and have had to wait for Windows update to catch up with Windows Live Essentials so its installer will work.
WLE is dependent on Windows Update downloaded and installed.

Windows Live Essentials
Please could someone advise me how to get my show webcam feature back on the new messenger? I really dislike the new features. I have tried using an older messenger, but as everyone will probably know, it forces you to install the newer version when you sign in :cry: Thanks guys Kirsty

Windows Live Essentials
Has anybody had issues installing Windows Live Essentials? I've already tried the online version that downloads only the utilities requested, and the full 134MB download version, but only "Writer" and "Silverlight" will install onto Windows 7 BETA x64. What's up with that?

Does anyone know if Windows Live Essentials is a required program for Windows 7? I see it sitting there in my list of programs sucking up about 86.5 MB of space, and I doubt I've even opened it up once. I just wanted to check if it has some important components... Thanks

Looking for a very good substitute for Peer Guardian 2
Peer Guardian 2 seems to have been abandoned. I feel that it's a very essential program to have working side by side with Vuze, so I've been looking for a very good anti-spying substitute for Peer Guardian 2, which are very effective in blocking off unwanted spam connections from malicious people....
