Hi john landale :)

Windows Live Mail is a component of Windows Live Essentials. In order to remove it, go in your Control Panel, under Uninstall a program and uninstall Windows Live Essentials. From there, it'll list you the components that are installed. Check Windows Live Mail and pursue with the uninstall, then it'll be gone.

Hi Aura, Thank you for your help but I get as far as 'uninstall a program' then I can not get past that. There is no mention of 'uninstall windows live essentials' . I have checked the list several times and I cn not find that instruction.

  • Once this is done, click on Go and wait for the scan to complete;
  • Once the scan is complete, a log will open. Please copy/paste the content of the output log in your next reply;
