A friend of mine just updated his desktop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now Live Mail fails to open correctly. I get the splash screen and the wait pointer and nothing. If I open Task Manager and close it, then Live Mail will load (sometimes I have to do it twice) but the title bar is transparent and not all the controls work. I've tried a repair procedure, and uninstalling and reinstalling with no success. I'm also not getting Compatibility Mode as an option in the icon properties.

I've suggested that he just use a different email program but he seems locked into WLM.

Any ideas would be appreciated!
