I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Recently I started getting an error message on every boot: "There was a problem that caused parts of the windows live id sign-in assistant to be disabled." I have tried to install the correct version 6.5 for Windows 7 according to the Microsoft website. (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15106) When I try to install this version, I get an error message telling me that a newer version is already installed. I have tried to uninstall the newer version (maybe incorrect version 7.0 for XP :??: ) but there is absolutely no entry in the Control Panel's "Programs and Features" for me to uninstall the Microsoft windows live id sign-in assistant. I have checked with my Revo Uninstaller Pro software and likewise there is no entry to remove the assistant. I have checked services.msc and again that service does not show up as being there. I uninstalled ALL windows essentials, rebooted, and then was able to install the correct version 6.5 of sign-in assistant as noted by Microsoft. I then reinstalled all of windows essentials 2012 and rebooted. I am back now to the original error message: "There was a problem that caused parts of the windows live id sign-in assistant to be disabled." I may just live with the error message each time I reboot as long as my mail is working correctly! I am not a newbie but I am stumped. Can someone please help me? Thank you.

Believe me I've just spent the best part of 30 minutes researching your problem. Google Search reveals it to be very common but I've come across no fixes for it. And it's something I've never had to deal with because I don't use any Windows Live applications.
