What is wlidsvc.exe?

Part of Microsoft® Windows Live ID by Microsoft

What is it?

Microsoft account (previously Windows Live ID) is a single sign-on web service developed and provided by Microsoft that allows users to log in to many websites using one account. Microsoft account allows users to sign in to websites that support this service using a single set of credentials. Users' credentials are not checked by Microsoft account-enabled websites, but by a Microsoft account authentication server.
Description of wlidsvc.exe from Microsoft
Windows Live ID (formerly known as Microsoft Passport) is a service that allows you to use a single e-mail address and password, referred to as credentials, to sign into most Microsoft sites and services, as well as those of select Microsoft partners. Create your sign in credentials (email and password) once, then use them everywhere on the Windows Live ID service. Use Windows Live ID to sign in to MSN Messenger, MSN Hotmail, MSN Music, and other sites and services! Windows Live ID works with Passport Network sites.
