The full user agent is:
Windows-Live-Social-Object-Extractor-Engine/1.0

Any ideas about what and why?

"Extractor" is one of the so-called standard deny terms.

Others; crawler, spider, download, harvest, email, larbin, Nutch, link, PHP, Reaper, Wget, fetch, curl, libww, and any variations of wording with similar definitions.

If bot makers are not able to come up with better thought out brand-names in their UA, than and IMO they don't even deserve consideration.
