Can anyone pls tell me where i can run the 7.5 version of this chat without been told i need the newer version by MS & forcing me to update without been forced into a newer version.?
Ive downloaded the very latest to be confronted with freezes and some sort of manic CPU overload.? i had to "Control-Halt-Delete" every 30 seconds WHY MS? WHY o WHY..Are you moving forwards with your software or ramming CPU's...?

Did you download the 2011 version.If so I believe you need SP3 downloaded.

I must admit I am not to keen on the 2011 version.
I click on it to start in quick start and nothing so have click on it again to open.And when I sign in it dissapears again and I have to click on the icon again for it to open.
Mind you not sure if you need Silverlight downloaded to use it properly or not as I get a bit fed up removing it all of the time.
You can click on Windows Live Essentials in add remove and press repair.
There is also a roll back to the previous version that you had installed but forgot how to get to it.
I will have another look.

Not sure where I seen the rollback to the earlier version.
I can't find it now.

I downloaded this Update and was,nt happy with it. I tried it a couple of times just to see how it would go. I decided that it was,nt for me. What did I do next ? I did a System Restore to the time that it was installed & now I am back at the old one. But ! now I am getting notice once more that I have an update & guess what it is . Will wait & see if notice of update goes away.
