Windows 10: Live Mail 2012 crashes regularly in Windows 10

    Live Mail 2012 crashes regularly in Windows 10

    Even after replacing Live Mail 2011 with 2012, I find that it still crashes on and off with the message "something unexpected has happened and Windows Live Mail must close".
    If I reboot, it works fine, but I don't want to have to reboot every time this happens.

    I can't offer much advice, WLM 2012 works fine for me in Win 10.

    Does it fail the same way with WLM 2011 as with WLM 2012?

    I am trying to determine what the circumstances are. So far:
    • It happens after awaking from hibernation, but I am going to shut it down before hibernating for a couple of days to see if that helps.
    • It does not happen on my laptop, only on my desktop.
    • Next time, I will shut down other programs and see which seems to be interfering.

    But is there any place a log is kept of the shutdown?
    Thanks for any help.
