Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows 7 Essentials

I have Windows 7 Home Premium...
And have hear about a feature called 'Essentials'.
I believe it is for downloading things like Movie Maker.

I have search Essentials in the start-menu seach bar but only get things like Nero Essentials.

Is this maybe only available in Windows 7 Ultiamate?

I have a Packard Bell bought from PC World.

(Even When I type in 'ess' I get nothing..)

Any Suggestions?

Its called MSSE - Microsoft Security Essentials and it is a AntiVirus from MS itself. You have to download and install it and its free. It is also good and light on resources. Go for it!!!

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?
Windows Live Essentials
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
