This application is very advanced and comes with lot of the requirements to be installed on the system and before the new download the Windows Live Essentials 2011 that you have downloaded from the website is not proper so you necessitate uninstalling the application first from the laptop and then again trying to download it. If you do not remove it and going for another download of the same application then it will generates a number of the problem.

The error code 0x80040705 is the error for the out of bound string and these mostly occur when there is a Virus attack on the system from the internet sources. So to resolve these use a strong antivirus such as the Avast, AVG etc. to scan the system completely then try to download the application this time you will get the solution for sure.
