    I am running Windows 7 Professional.
    I do not wish to use Windows Live and although I have a large hard drive, the program does create many folders and files as well as several thousand Registry entries. Is there any reason why I should not uninstall it using an application such as Revo Uninstaller?

    If you don't want to use it, uninstall it but I'd try Live's own uninstaller first.

    There will be folders and email that remains after the client is uninstalled.
    Check your store folder's root directory for some of these. Also look in:
    C:\Users\[username]/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Live Mail, or some variation thereof.
    Backup your email prior to doing so.
