Windows Live Mail Not Shutting Down Correctly

  dogbreath1 20:11 15 Jul 2008

XP SP3 Windows Live Mail.

Not always, but sometimes, I close WLM and it 'disappears' as you'd expect.

A few minutes later, an error message pops up 'WLM Has Encountered A Problem And Has Had To Close....'. You know the one!!

Looking into this showed that WLM was often still displayed as running in Task Manager even after I had closed it down. The phenomena does not always correspond to when closing WLM occurs during it's checking of my email accounts.

Any ideas please??

After a bit more research, it appears to be a common problem. For me, doing a repair install through Add/Remove Programs did the trick.
