  1. Since loading Windows Essentials (primarily to get MoveMaker), I noted nasty degradation in my Internet.

    Upon some research (using Spybot S&D), I found two LSPs loaded form Windows Live (which I don't need at all).

    here's what was discovered:
    • Namespace Provider 8: WindowsLive NSP GUID: {4177DDE9-6028-479E-B7B7-03591A63FF3A} Filename: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live\WLIDNSP.DLL
    • Namespace Provider 9: WindowsLive Local NSP GUID: {229F2A2C-5F18-4A06-8F89-3A372170624D} Filename: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live\WLIDNSP.DLL
    I elected to remove these two LSPs, using the LSPfix tool zip -or-the standalone LSPfix.exe.
    Be sure to select ONLY the WindowsLive NSP (one shown, two deleted) and immediately allow a reboot.

    The other choice would be to uninstall Windows Essentials.
    If you need the MS Access db engine, it can be downloaded and independently installed :)
