Have you tried to repair Windows Live Mail? Scroll down this article until you reach "optionally try to repair first". As johnnyrocker says it changed to Windows Live Essentials and then to Windows Essentials.

click here johnnyrocker said it changed to Windows Live Essentials and then to Windows Essentials. With the advent of Windows 10 support has now been phased out althought it can still be used. See this article.

Repair would be your best bet.

If one particular e-mail address is giving you problems you can delete it then reinstall it again to see if that sorts the problem out.

Or sign into your e-mail Via the internet as that sometimes refreshes your email in WLM.

I find that deleting the email in WLM then installing it again works best for me, But then I do not have anything really important to loose.

last night i wondered if an sfc would work, so i opened cmd and entered the details only to be told that i need to be an administrator to use the console.

please advise.

rightclick on the windows flag at bottom right, choose Command Prompt Admin

oops (senior moment) of course that should be bottom left on your desktop or at the top on the taskbar wherever you've got it (you might have moved the taskbar to one side)

The 'Windows flag' is the icon of 4 wavy squares, here's a pic of part of a taskbar with it at bottom left
