I downloaded the new Windows Live Essentials today but I’m having trouble with the Writer. After opening the program it asks what blog I want to hook up with and when I enter the info, it will not accept it and I can’t get past that page. I even tried the " Start a new blog" and clicked on that but it still gives me an error report. I tried downloading the writer again but the download site said I already have the program and won’t re-download it. Maybe I should delete the whole thing and start over. I sent Microsoft an error report. I’ll wait to see what their response will be. I had the same problem with Chrome, the new Google browser. After downloading and installing that program, it would never open. I tried a number of times but had no luck, so I had to delete it. Maybe its my computer!
