View Full Version : Windows Live Mail error

28-06-2011, 06:15 PM
I cannot create emails with Windows Live Mail, when I click on the button a box appears saying a problem occured and to try again. I have uninstalled / reinstalled about 4 times now and still the same problem, it worked fine last week. Any ideas?

Welcome to PF1 :)

Little bit more info please:

What version of windows are you using, and what Antivirus software do you have installed ?

Have there been any updates, or programs installed since then the problem appeared ?

You could always try running system restore back to before the problem began to see if that fixes it.

Had issues with live mail. Couldn't receive mail. The problem disappeared on it's own in about 3 days.

Version of windows is 7 (64bit), using Avast antivirus. I can receive emails but when I click on the button to create email the error box comes up. I am going to try the system restore this morning and see what happens

Ok an update must have come in because when I turned on the computer this morning and checked the email I clicked on the button and I can now do new message, reply & forward. I wish MS would stop mucking about with their products, If it works then leave it alone.. Old saying "If it's not broke DON'T FIX IT!!"
Thanks for your suggestions cheers
