Publisher's Description

Updates all of Windows Live services on Windows:

Windows Live Updater is a program which updates Windows Live Essentials (previously Windows Live Installer). It is a suite of freeware applications by Microsoft which aims to offer integrated and bundled e-mail, instant messaging, photo-sharing, blog publishing, security services and other Windows Live entities.

Essentials programs are designed to integrate well with each other, with the Windows operating system, and with other Windows Live web-based services such as Windows Live Photos and Windows Live Hotmail, so that they operate as a seamless whole.

Windows Live Essentials integrates perfectly with Windows 7, but isn't included in the installation by default. If you use Windows Live Messenger or other programs with the "Live" trademark, this program should be installed to provide additional online-based functionality with Windows.
