I downloaded and installed Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows Live Photo Gallery. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Now PSI tells me that Windows Live Mail is insecure. I tried to uninstall it but it is not listed in Add/Remove programs or Revo Uninstaller. There is no obvious uninstaller in the Windows Live folder in my Start Menu. I'd like to get rid of it since I don't use it and I don't want to waste my time trying to keep it secure.

EDIT: Forgot to add these directions if you want to go ahead & remove.

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the program to 'expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if you are unsure what to do next.
