Windows 10: Win Live MAIL problem Solved

    Win Live MAIL problem


    I have a new laptop with Win10 installed and ever since downloading WinLive Mail, Win Live Mail has given me problems.

    It spends hours saying it is upgrading, I cannot get rid of it unless, I shut the laptop down and remove the battery. This is ridiculous. Anyone else with the same problem and an answer as to how to fix it?

    Frankly, I am fedup with the goons who put Win10 on the market without proper protection for customers. I already have had one laptop made completely useless by installing Win10 and I will be really furious if Win10 blows up this new laptop as well.

    Suggestion only :
    If you can use WLM at all, open it, backup the emails you want to keep.
    Go to Programs and Features > find Windows Essentials ( either 2011, or 2012 )> right click at it > click Uninstall.

    Use the link below and reinstall Windows Essentials 2012.......

    Adding................. I have been using WLM since the early days of Win 7.
    I have WLM on Win 10 Home and Win 10 Pro. Not a problem.

    Many people use WLM on Win 10 machines without issue, I personally use it on several machines with Win 10 and have no problems so I don't think it's an OS problem.

    Maybe uninstalling/re-installing as davidhk suggested will help. That would be where I would start.

    Thankyou for your helpful reply. I, too have used WLM since Win 7 without problems. I just wonder what this constant downloading has done to my laptop. I will have to re-install. Such a nuisance.

    Well...... so far WLM seems to be doing OK. I repaired it instead of uninstalling. I should have thought of that first before bothering other people with my complaint.

    Yes. I forgot about the Repair option all together.
    Good to know you have the problem sorted.
