Not sure if we will all have to update or not.
But worth a look I suppose.

Quite a few add-ons in that lot that I would not want to download.
I wonder if it gives you that option like the old version.

I just wanted to update my Windows live Messenger but when you press install it want you to download Windows live Essentials not unless it then gives you an option of just installing Messenger.

Yes thanks just did it.
Not very keen on the new messenger page.
I have had to run it in compact view to remove msn home page or whatever it was.
No doubt I will get used to it eventually.

Ive just installed windows live on a vista machine, and "seaport.exe" is now constantly running - any ideas on what it may do?

Its not removable from the usual msconfig/startup option within windows, and too many sites are giving out warnings that its nothing but test software from microsoft if you download any new messenger/chat related software :(

  theDarkness 10:00 01 Oct 2010 you were probably wise in not installing it. ps-sorry, didnt mean to hijack your thread! ;) lol

Googled seaport.exe.

Did you download messenger.
It is no big deal but when I open it it stays on the Taskbar and you have to open it again from there and when you sign in you have to click on the icon on the taskbar for it to open again.
It may be a W/7 problem or just one of my own. like I said no big deal just annoying.

maybe I should have removed the old verion first I just downloaded over the top.
