Windows Live is a complete set of software apps and services developed by Microsoft. Although most of these are web apps which can be accessed with the help of your web browser, this is not necessarily the case. There are other tools that need to be installed if you’re planning on using it.
I would have really liked to explain Windows Live wholly, but alas you wouldn’t have read this post. Not that I’m not any good or anything, it’s just that Wikipedia has already done a better job (yeah, I know, it’s a pity!).
Ah, anyways, let’s look at the toolbar thing now.
Windows Live toolbar is that box in your browser where type in the keywords to perform web searches. Okay, you probably know that already, else you wouldn’t be reading this article! Anyways, the toolbar thing is really cool. Want to know why?
Here’s an exercise which should make my point clear. Enter something in the toolbar. Yeah, go on, type something!
See how suggestions come up below it. You just need to click the relevant suggestion; you don’t have to enter the whole thing. How cool is that!
Moreover, smart menus pop up the moment you highlight texts. And within these, you’ll also be able to get map previews and weather forecasts (and that’s why I stopped watching TV!).
Now that you’ve a rough idea of how cool the toolbar is, let’s get Windows Live help to reinstall this toolbar. Read on!
Windows Live help instructions
- Click Start and then select Run.
- In the Run dialog box, type in “appwiz.cpl” and then hit Enter. This will launch the Add/Remove Programs window. Yeah, this is where you decide which program gets to stay and which, doesn’t. Kind of like the Judgment day for programs (if that makes any difference to them!).
- Select Windows Live Toolbar and then click Uninstall. Once the un-installation is complete, click Finish.
- Now reinstall the latest Windows Live toolbar version. Just click Run. The installation should be a breeze, just follow the onscreen instructions.
- Choose to Accept terms of service and then click Next.
- Click Finish at the end.
Yeah, that’s all the Windows Live help you need. Have a nice day!
PS: By the way, Wikipedia is really boring!
