Windows Live Photo Gallery
Full user review
"Forget this,it's useless."
None. I tried the other version-Windows Live Photo Gallery for Windows XP and both Windows XP and Windows 7. And it froze on both operating systems. So it's not a Windows 7 or Windows XP issue ,it's this program. And 2011 version was no better-same problem.
This program caused me nothing but problems on both my Windows XP and Windows 7 laptops.I tried the Windows XP version on both Windows 7 and Windows XP.It was a disaster and the 2011 version,well that was even worse.That has a horrible ribbon toolbar making it confusing to use. And it froze and crashed just like the XP version did. There are 2 versions of Windows Live-2009 for Windows XP,Windows Vista and Windows 7.And Windows Live 2011 for Windows Vista and Windows 7.which most people don't use or like,so they use the 2009 version. But while Windows live messenger and mail for Windows XP is great on Windows 7 and XP,Photo Gallery is TERRIBLE. It crashed and slowed down both computers I tried it on. So I had to uninstall it. It also comes bundled with a lot of other software-Windows Live Sync and some other things,which could be the cause of the problems I had with it.
So need I say more? so forget Windows Live Photo Gallery it is nothing but a disaster and you will uninstall it like I did. as it does nothing but crash and slow your computer and freeze it. just stick with Windows live Mesenger for windows XP,which works also on windows 7. and also windows live mail for windows XP is good and works on Windows 7. You don't need 2011 version for Windows 7.but stay away from Windows Live Photo gallery both versions are terrible. You are better off using the default Windows photo viewer that comes with both windows XP and windows 7. Not this- Windows Live Photo Gallery.Andrea Borman
