    Control panel Mail causing Rundll32.exe crash


    Hi All,

    I'm having some outlook issues and need to get into the mail settings in Control Panel. However when I click Mail in the control panel I get the message "Windows Host process (Rundll32) has stopped working." (See below) and I cant get it in. This computer has just had a clean install of Windows and has barely any programs installed. The version of windows is 8.1 and if it makes a difference its Office 2013 Pro Plus.

    I appreciate any help.

    Cheers

    Another forum said to repair the install of office 2013 in "add or remove programs" which has fixed it
