Guide to Windows Live

Windows Live Movie MakerWindows Live is a set of web-based applications and software products for the web, Windows OS and mobile platforms. Launched on November 1, 2005, it borrowed and enhanced Microsoft’s MSN web-based applications and products and integrated many services with the Windows operating system. Windows Vista came up with the Windows Live Essentials suite, a software package that offers various services and applications, including Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Messenger and Mail. Applications outside the Windows OS include the web-based Skydrive, OneCare Safety scanner and many such services.

Here at Brighthub, users can find many informative pieces on Windows Live, including guides and tutorials on using OneCare Safety Scanner, Movie Maker, Windows Live Contacts and Windows Live Wave and Hotmail reference guides.
