Click Accounts and on the ribbon select Properties. If you have more than one account just select the account on the left side and then Properties.

The first time I tried to Install, I mustve disrupted it because I ran into the same issue. My fix was to run System Restore. No need to uninstall OS

Don't feel bad! When installing here I ended up restoring the entire system from an image due to a bad install of some type. I have a feeling it's still a bit too buggy for many and could cause problems for those that don't see immediate favorable results.

That was actually a first seeing that happen here! I've seen bad installs of finished programs and even bad installs of Windows on occasion but not seeing a Window Live beta completely trash other softwares installed?!

From the brief look at it once on that was something different to see. I didn't care for how the Messenger contact catagories were rearranged however. The word here is just be a little cautious with this release when downloading and installing to make sure things go as they should.

If you select "Download now" it downloads wlsetup-webd.exe which installs the complete package.

If you select "Choice the programs you want" it downloads "wlsetup-webc.exe" and it will give you the choices and also will update the ones you have install already.

They have just moved "wlsetup-webc.exe" to the "Download Now" button and is the same version from yesterday.
