        About MS Office Live Service

MS Office Live is an online service developed by Microsoft for web hosting, document sharing, etc. Many Windows Office Live applications and plugins help Windows users easily access this online service. These Office Live applications were designed to work smoothly with all MS Office applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Publisher. However, with the advent of cloud computing technology, Microsoft has discontinued its MS Office Live services.

OneDrive cloud service – or formerly known as SkyDrive – has now replaced the Office Live Workspace service. Similarly, the cloud-based Office 365 service has replaced the Office Live Small Business online service. Therefore, if you have any of these old Windows Office Live application installed in your OS, you can now remove them from your system and move on with the trend.

From now on, you will have to use Microsoft’s One Drive and Office 365 services for your document sharing or web hosting needs. In short, all the Windows Office Live applications and plugins installed in your system have now become useless. So, it is better to remove the unwanted programs and utilities and free up some space.

Uninstalling the Office Live applications

Whenever you update the Windows OS, many of the Office applications in your system also receive updates in the process. To uninstall them, go to the Add or Remove section in your OS Control Panel.
