Updating windows live messenger

Microsoft is alerting users that some changes coming to Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and MSN accounts will prevent email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012.

After installing Windows Live Messenger (WLM), which previously known as MSN Messenger, the messenger instant messaging client will automatically start and load itself on Windows startup.

Autostart of Windows Live Messenger allows frequent users or IM addicts to quickly sign onto the WL Messenger service to chat with friends and contacts.

Loading and starting the Windows Live Messenger when Windows starts slow down the startup process, and for people who seldom or rarely uses the Windows Live Messenger client, letting the program runs at the background waste valuable system resources.

Here’s how to disable and turn off auto-start of Windows Live Messenger to forbid, prevent and stop Windows Live Messenger to automatically starts up.

Filed under: Compatibility with this software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup.

A separate x64 version may be available from Microsoft. Microsoft encourages you to save that e-mail from Outlook for later use.So that makes me think (or hope) that this update is for later use and should only be applied once WLM stops functioning.I will just use my Windows Live mail the way it is until it stops working then I will once again attempt to install that update and see if it works then.Perhaps that update involves changing the update server and that server is not yet operational.But if that is the case I wonder why that are not clear about that in the e-mail?
