    Windows Live Email


    All of a sudden my Windows Live email opens up automatically when I turn on my
    computer. I have check all over my PC for auto starting, such as Startup folder, Task Manager,
    and services. I cannot find any where that my Email should be starting up automatically....
    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. I know that WLM does not have support any longer,
    however I really like it and am not ready to change to Thunderbird or any other email program.
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Ron.

    If you exited Live mail, then shutdown, does it restart?

    Have a look at this.

    Add Shut down Context Menu in Windows 10

    Try looking in either
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    or C:\Users\The User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Also, make sure you close WLM before you shutdown or restart.

    Thanks both of you. HOWEVER, I have tried those and have not found any way that WLM should start
    up when I turn on my computer, and I always turn off any running programs before shutting down at night.
    I am at a loss !!

    Okay lets try this.

    Hold shift key down and then click shutdown. This gives you a fresh copy of Windows when you power on.

    Thanks Caledon Ken,
    I will certainly do this when I shut down. But in regards to WLM auto starting, It does not do it ALL THE TIME.
    I'm not so sure that a Windows update did something???? Who knows? I plan to shut down in a minute. Will let
    you know what happens.
    Thanks again

    You can also go to Programs and Features, Uninstall a program and find Windows Essentials, click on it then click on Uninstall/change at the top. When it starts it will ask whether you want to uninstall or repair it. Try the repair and see if that will correct the problem.

    Well I shut down WITHOUT holding down shift key and WLM started up automatically.
    Then I shut down holding the shift key and WLM did not start up automatically.
    Three things
    1: do I have to hold shift key from now on ?
    2:Or is there a fix?
    3: still don't know why it does auotstart.

    I could try to "repair" or "change" however since Microsoft has stopped support for WLM, I would
    rather not try anything to it, just in case...
    Oh well, I guess I can live with the shift key.
    Perhaps ,who knows maybe it will correct itself in time ????
    Again thanks

    Holding the shift key down prevents Windows Fast Startup from engaging.

    You could disable this feature.

    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    I would not be expecting a fix for an unsupported product. That said patches get patched.
