It just keeps infomation of your windows live account so when you go on, for example, it auto logs you in. its a stupid way of doing this and is typical of windows.
Unidentified program thats starts without any request from user.
windows live
It seems to slow down internet connection speed while its up and tends to restore itself frequently after being terminated through the task manager. I found ending the process exceptionally sped up computer and internet speed.
Unecessary file having to do with Windows Live and related products. I kill the process whenever I see it. It starts whenever I run Internet Explorer, so I have to kill it often.
Needed when using Windows Live Messenger.

Best practices for resolving WLLoginProxy issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with WLLoginProxy. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
