I have Windows Vista and use Windows Mail. Every thing was working great but now when I use spell check and highlight a misspelled word, click "change",  my screen turns gray, a message "Windows Mail has stopped working" appears and my composed email is deleted. HELP!

Hi Maurice941,


Do you currently use the old "Windows Mail" or the newer version "Windows Live Mail" ? Usually the crash you just described occurs on the older "Windows Mail" because there is some sort of interfering between the Antivirus in your system and Windows Mail. I strongly recommend the upgrade if you haven't done it yet :)



Also, If you are using the old version, have you tried to reset your Windows Mail settings? If not, you can follow the steps in this tutorial: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/62560-windows-mail-problems.html
