Good day.

Running win 8, I d/led Windows essentail live from this link : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentialsAttached File  msnmsgr.jpg   11.92KB   0 downloads
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. mad.gif

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.

 This solution is from ..    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/how-do-i-reinstall-wldcoredll/2075e9bf-2e5a-e011-8dfc-68b599b31bf5?page=3



Please....make a RESTORE POINT before you attempt this


How to set a system restore point







. It seems the new Windows Live has grouped the wldcore.dll and wldlog.dll (used by Messenger, Contacts and Mail) to a folder c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared


Maybe because I did upgrade install it screwed up things.

The solution was simply copy paste those 2 files wldcore.dll and wldlog.dll from c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared to

  • c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger
  • c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Contacts
  • c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail





if all of that is a bit too much.....

In this topic you post that you had install Avast.  You should not have two antivirus installed at any time.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable. Why? The primary concern with doing so is due to Windows resource management and significant conflicts that can arise especially when they are running in real-time protection mode simultaneously. Even if one of them is disabled for use as a stand-alone on demand scanner, it can affect the other and cause conflicts. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up regardless of whether real-time protection is enabled or not. Thus, using multiple anti-virus solutions can result in kernel mode conflicts causing system instability, catastrophic crashes, slow performance and waste vital system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, each anti-virus may try to update their definition databases at the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.
