My System Specs


Yup as other have said, Windows Live Essentials (it's in Windows Update for that matter), is MS's replacement to Photo Gallery, Mail, Movie Maker, etc. I think they have done this to prevent the issues the EU has with MS including software. So now it's all optional programs installed at the users request.

I don't have any issue with it since I typically install Windows Live Messenger, so all those other programs are in the selection while I do so. I use Windows Live Mail to check all my Hotmail/Live email accounts since I personally hate their web interface. And Windows Live Photo Gallery is my default viewer too, works perfectly. And can even show my RAW pictures after installing the Canon RAW Codec.
