What is this and can I delete it? When I click to update it, it just takes me to this web page.

It is EOL and was installed in support of very old programme(s). There are numerous other threads on this forum dealing with this issue like this one

You have not stated what version of Windows you are using so it might not be totally relevant to you.

The programme should be residing in Control Panel>Program and Features and can be safely uninstalled but it will cripple any very old program it supports like Windows Live.
