well I did a quick search and found a way to keep it running and minimizing to system tray.

Windows Live Messenger - Taskbar or Notification Icon

Is this a tip to keep it running in the system tray? because if it is, its not working for me... :'(
Not really, it just minimizes it to the Taskbar and it continues to check for new mail.

I've been getting the word on FaceBook not seeing any problems either. It went right on here and once all was set with the contacts had to look over the new emotions seen with this release.

The uninstall gave me the option to repair so I did that. It churned away for awhile and then told me to to restart. Them I tried again to install the new and it went right through to the end. Mission accomplished! So if you are running into this type of difficulty try the 'repair' option on uninstall.
Better yet, instead of repairing the beta and then installing the final version over the beta, just uninstall the beta and install the final version.
The reason I attempted the repair and was glad it succeeded was so that I wouldn't have to reset any preferences, passwords, settings, etc. That's why we do this update thing I suppose.

Does the Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 have no timeline again??? If so, its not for me. I think WLE is again going to install a lot of things I don't want to bog my system, so no thanks if that is the case.

When going to install you can opt for the custom options where you pick and choose rather then see everything go on all at once. The Movie Maker and other options besides Messenger and Mail are simply unchecked to avoid seeing them downloaded and installed during the initial setup.

Here I opt out of the Blog writer and Movie Maker to start with always going with the custom not full install option. You may want to take that route or simply removed the Movie Maker if you run into problems having it on.
