    Windows Live Essentials installation issue


    Good day.

    Running win 8, I d/led Windows essentail live from this link : Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials

    After installation I got error messages for missing files like attached file for messenger.
    I tried to uninstall the package but could not find it on uninstall program or windows features.

    I need help to install one correctly or to removed it from system.

    I mainly need this package for movie maker, I will be much happy if I get alternative freeware.

    Thanks and regards.

    If you wish, you can try:
    1. Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live if the folder existed.
    2. Download https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds . select the portable version so you don't have to install it.
    3. run CCleaner to clean up the registry.
    4. Try to re-install Windows Live Mail

    You could try running in administrator cmd prompts---

    sfc /scannow

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then--
    sfc /scannow

    again & reboot.

    dism hangs at 20% for a long time.

    They should look similar to this---
