    Bill,
    More information is needed. What brand of computer do you have? What error message do you get when you try installing? Are you having problems with other error messages or other programs not installing?

    Do you have current up to date virus and spyware protection?

    I had a similar problem due to a corrupt Microsoft Installer program. If you are getting an error message, copy it and paste it in a reply. Do a google search on the whole error message.

Unable to send e-mails in windows mail


In Win Vista Outlook is reconfigured to WIndows Live mail, so the only solution is to use this version , but you can transfer your account settings from earlier computer with outlook installed... there is a link how to do that, but it leads to another site then another etc.

Siplest explanation is : from outlook_> export everything to a file, and then tranfer it to windows live by "import"

Everytime i start my computer.. there is always a window on the upper left that says: setting up personalized settings,Configuring Microsoft Windows Mail 7 in Vista?that is why i have to again reinstall...


Windows Mail is part of the windows live essentials update pack. If you do not use the features of this pack the easiest solution is to remove this update and not show it again. If you do that the Windows Mail configuration should no longer appear. If you do use the features of Windows Live essentials then just configuring the mail correctly should stop it from trying to configure every time you boot.

To remove the update: go to control panel>add or remove programs> on the left side look for view installed updates> click then click windows live essentials and uninstall at the top

Hope this helps

How to download outlook express to send mails


You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.

I have just installed windows 7 and i lost my email ,how do i get it back


I assume you are referring to a desktop email program such as Outlook Express that was part of XP or Windows Mail which came with Vista. In Windows 7 there is no desktop email program included in the OS and you cannot get Windows Mail back. But, all is not lost. You have choices. You can download and install Windows Live Mail which is very similar to Windows Mail. http://download.live.com/wlmail Or you can choose Thunderbird which is a fantastic free desktop email program. http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/ The choice is yours.

Windows live mail keeps freezing


Reinstall it, and if you are using it on vista, and its a version made for xp, which is possible, right click on the icon for it on the desktop and click on properties. there should be a tab that says compatability. select the operating system as windows xp. and that should do it. if not, you may have internet problems. If you are talking about checking it online, and not on the actual program (windows live messenger, which you can download from here: http://get.live.com/messenger/config) then you should probably install the program and then try accessing it.

Verify the setting via Manage accounts on your XP machine (the one the email client works on) in whatever email client you use on it and verify and edit if need be the setting in your Windows Live Mail on your Vista home Laptop.
