Vista 64 Ultimate, phenom 9850, mushkin pc 80004gb asus m3n HT mempipe deluxe

Hello,
I have had a problem with my pc for around 3 weeks. I have Mcafee protection running and use various measures to keep my system running smoothly. Anyway to cut to the chase I started having a problem with windows mail. It continuously opens up while I am working on tasks. It also sends me a message saying it cannot open as a precious version is still running. I sometimes receive this message very quickly and repeatedly of over 100 times. The windows mail I have reduced and put to the side in an attempt to ignore it. However it keeps reopening so while I am typing it breaks my type as I have to click on the screen to rid myself of the ever opening mail.
The steps I have taken so far....

-disable windows mail (this released a torrent of messages saying windows mail could not be opened)
-Full virus scan
-ccleaner software
-superantispyware
-vundofix
-malwarebytes
a reformat of hard drive
a repair from startup including bootrec mbr boot and mbrfix

The problem just keeps on recurring!
I do not know what to try next...

Any help/suggestions will be warmly received.

cheers Mike

Just a shot in the dark here, but..

Maybe a faulty keyboard, or stuck key, resulting in Windows Mail continually trying to open from a keyboard shortcut.

See if the problem persists with a different keyboard, or with the keyboard disconnected.
