3 out of 5 eggs Windows Live Essentials? 02/28/2014

This review is from: Microsoft T3H-00011 L2 LifeCam HD-3000 USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros:

Good picture quality.
Worked on Windows 7 right out of the Box.
No software installation, or so I thought, read below...

Cons:

Cant remove funky base or mount to tripod.
Wants to install software I do not need nor want.

Other Thoughts:

I can't explain why this cam works out of the box but when it's left plugged in when I reboot it wants to install software.
Quote:
"Setting up your LifeCam involves the following steps:
1. Downloading and installing the latest software.
2. Installing Windows Live Essentials
3. Connecting your LifeCam"

Um... I do not want Windows Live or anything to do with Windows Live. Now I got to figure out why it's intent on putting it on my computer and IF I can remove it after it's hijacked me without it bugging me again.

Feels like just like Google forcing everyone with a gmail account to get Google +. I'm getting rather sick of corporations compelling or forcing us into their social networks. It's all an effort to mine personal data.
