NS update failed

W7 64 bit. Today update KB2434419 failed to install - note said "failed" - no ref No. This is a Windows Live Mail 2011 update - I do not use WLM, and a window appeared asking if I wanted a complete installation or update already installed - I chose the latter. Tried a system restore but when I checked for updates there were none. I suspect the installation went in ok as the seperate progress window completed. I am not too bothered as I use Outlook 2007 for e mail.

Sorry heading should be MS, not NS!

This is for Windows Live Essentials you do not need to download live mail or messenger if you dont want them.
I would not use Windows Update in case it downloads the whole lot of them.

This is what it downloads all of them I think.

It will give you the opertunity of removing which ones you don't want when the download starts.
If you don't want to use any ignore the update.

Thanks for that. I wondered why the update was offered as I do not recall loading windows liv essentials before.
I think it installed as in your link.
I will probably uninstall it and hope the updates will not, thereafter, be offered.
