A week ago suddenly I was unable to open any emails in Windows Live Mail/Hotmail.  I can see all the messages are listed but cannot open them.  I get a message saying "A problem occurred while trying to open this message" every time I try to open a message.  I can open the messages if I go online under https:// but not under my email.  I looked at the Microsoft site and tried all the things they suggested.  I uninstalled Windows Live Mail and reinstalled it.  No change.  I downloaded the Microsoft Silverlight.  I checked and have Internet Explorer 11.  I have tried to repair the Windows Live Mail.  Again no change.  I don't know how to get back to where I can actually view my emails in Windows Live Mail.  I am frustrated.  Any ideas.  By the way, I have restarted after each of the above.  I changed my security settings for junk mail to medium.  I suspect this happened after an automatic update.

Hi Vegreville :)

It seems like you're not the only one with that issue. You are using the Windows Live Mail application right, and not accessing Hotmail/Outlook from your web browser?

  • Download MiniToolBox and move it to your Desktop;
  • Execute it by double-clicking on it;
  • Check the "List Installed Programs" checkbox;
  • Click on the Go button;
  • Once the scan is complete, a log will open.
  • Copy/paste (select the Notepad, press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C to copy, and Ctrl + V to paste) the content of the output log in your next reply;
