    windows live mail freezes


    Hi all,

    Live mail freezes when receiving e-mail if I re-open live mail a second time during the same cession , I have to reboot

    to make it work , I used the repair program 3 times but no luck, I could be related to a message I keep getting that I

    have over 400 (and going up ) in my live messenger mail but if I go in messenger and click on the words that says I have 400 unread e-mail, it takes me to live mail with no unread mail,

    I removed all of the live essentials and re-install but I get the same messages and the same problems.

    Similar here. I have about 9,000 archived emails going back some 8 years. Nearly lost them the other day when they were corrupted. Luckily I had a backup or three. Blast W8

    Wouldn't say it is solved as yet though.

    Try changing compatibility to windows 7 - mine works fine. If it still causes problems, run the compatibility troubleshooter to find the correct settings.

    Thanks ukbadge. I didn't realise there was a compatibility mode & troubleshooter. Will give them a try.

    Well, WLM runs better about 80% of the time, albeit, much slower starting up. Rest of the time it freezes at the logo

    I actually ran it twice. Re-run the compatibility troubleshooter, when it finishes say it didn't work and it will re-run. Then it should be ok.

    ukbadge, TY for the tip - I think (with fingers crossed) the compatibility trick worked for me too.

    I think I solved LIVE MAIL Freezes and Stalling!


    My Live Mail was constantly stalling. To Receive or Send, I needed to Restart my computer every time, several times a day, which was troublesome!
    By long research and reading massive posts/solutions,
    I gathered all the knowledge together and:

    1. Pressed WINDOWS & R buttons together (on Keybord)
    2. Typed or Copy/Paste: %appdata%
    3. Top: App Data / Local
    4. Found Windows Live (yellow folder)
    5. Found and DELETED RSS Feeds!
    I was also contemplating to Delete Calendar, but I was affraid that maybe Dates won't show on my emails?

    By all means, I am not computer expert. Just so happy that my email works perfectly now and wanted to share it with you.
    I don't know for how long will continue to work flawlesly. I hope this is it!
