    Can't get email program

    Just bought a new computer and I HATE WIN8 but they got me where it hurts because you can't even buy a computer now without it.

    So. How do I get an email program? I do not like Internet mail interface. I have roadrunner. The tech at the store said I could connect by Outlook but when I get to Outlook it wants my email and pw. I don't have one.. hello? I am trying to get one. There is no option to register. HELP I'm losing it here. Sometimes when I try options in the Mail place I get a blank screen that won't close..there is no way to close it. I had to restart. I wish I had just repaired my old vista computer.

    Windows Live Mail (a desktop email client similar to Windows Mail that you had on Vista) doesn't come pre-installed with Windows 8, but is instead part of the Windows Essentials package, which can be downloaded at the following link.
    Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials

    You should be able to find your Time-Warner/Roadrunner POP/SMTP settings here:

    Generic info on setting up Windows Live Mail can be found here:
