Preferred Solution: Uninstall Windows 8 Mail (but after i have installed the fix to make Windows 8 look like Windows 7)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


My sister-in-law?s Window Mail is now inoperative and now wants to use Windows Live Mail instead. I have installed a Windows Live Mail POP account for her on my computer which is working satisfactory but she wants her old Windows Mail messages.

I managed to have save her Windows Mail message store file for her and I am attempting to make it work in Windows Live Mail.
I have replaced the Windows Live Mail message store file with the Windows Mail message store file
but it does not recognise it and when the recover option is used nothing happens.

Any ideas please how I can make the old Windows Mail message store open in Windows Live Mail.

How do I uninstall the bunch of applications that came preinstalled with Vista and don't show up in any uninstaller? I have:
Windows Mail
Windows Media Player
Windows Meeting Space
Windows Movie Maker
Windows Photo Gallery
Windows Anytime Upgrade
Windows Marketplace
standard games like freecell

I don't know which are part of the OS and which are standalone applications I realise I probably can't uninstall Internet Explorer, but how do I uninstall the above?

A:Uninstall Windows Mail, Windows Media Player, Windows x, etc.

hello ohana
those are all part of the os. but if you go to control panel > programs and features > turn windows features on or off (left hand side) you can turn some of them off. i dont know about uninstalling them.
as for IE , that is the only browser microsoft will let do the updates. so if you plan on updating .dont uninstall it.

Now when I start the computer I get promt to pick one OS at the beginning. I've only use windows 7 and wish to delete vista.

Q) how do i delete vista on C drive

Now i have reversed the procedure to unistall windows mail from windows 7 and reinstalled the windows 7 mail folder to get it back to original, that also worked great.
BUT I had put a windows mail short cut on my desktop which was still there.
I opened it and BAM i was receiving emails through windows mail (which I did not want to happen).
I deleted the short cut.
Now there is a windows mail icon on bottom right corner of screen that I cannot open or delete or anything.

I have managed to activate Windows Mail in W7 but can't seem to make it the default mail/news application.

Perhaps W7 needs alternate programs before it allows the default to be set?

I really wish Microsoft hadn't decided to ditch it as I can't stand Windows Live Mail - it's a nightmare when you have 9 email accounts like I do. Also it is great for their newsgroups.

Good Evening Folks:

Got myself a problem trying to uninstall Windows live mail. It started when I got error message 0X800cccoD. As per MS instructions, I ran System Restore to a time previous to the last update. Nothing changed. I then ran Restore to the farthest previous automatic restore point at which the restore function would operate. No change. The next step was to delete the Windows Essentials app using Revo uninstaller. The icon for the app disappeared and Revo indicated it was uninstalled. I then tried to reinstall Live Mail and was informed that it was already installed. I checked my C/: (x86) program list and it showed the program was still installed. Following that I ran the Revo forced install function and it came up with a whole list of files which I deleted. I again tried to reinstall the program and was told it was still on my computer. Another crack at a forced install came up with nothing. I then went to my C/: (x86) program files and tried to delete the listing. I was informed that I needed special permission from some goofy installer which I could not find. I then tried to install it using the AVG Shredder function and this got it off of the list. I tried to reinstall the program again with the same result. Windows told me the program was still on my drive. I then went into my registry and deleted every reference to Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Essentials that I could find. Once again the reinstallation gave me the same results. So, as it stands... Read more

I would like to uninstall internet explorer 7 and windows mail off my computer running with vista.

I have looked through every single page that has come up in google about this subject and none have an answer!

I want to have IE6 and outlook express, please let me know how to do this! I'm getting very frustrated and going back to XP will void my warrenty (which is the only reason I haven't done it)!

On another thread in here, Courtneyc said:
IE7 is not integrated into Vista (or XP). In fact, the whole reason IE7 exists is that Microsoft lost the lawsuit.
IE6 and below required the operating system to function, so therefore, can only be installed on XP or below. Vista cannot support it.
However, you can completely uninstall IE7 and install something else. You no longer need IE7 to do updates in Vista. It has an independent program to do that.

So is there at least a way to remove 'Windows mail' and use outlook express again? I hate windows enough as it is, now I can't even check my hotmail from OE...... grrrr. At this point I would even use regular outlook.

I tried updating Windows Live Mail to the latest version using the web installer, but it kept failing and rolling back the installation. I then downloaded the full offline installer, but the same issue occurred.

I decided to uninstall Windows Live Essentials so I could try and install the latest versions of Mail and Messenger. The uninstall completed (or it seemed to), but while Messenger was gone, Windows Live Mail was still on my computer and functioning normally.

I then tried running the offline installer again. It didn't recognise that Mail was installed (as usually it says "the following programs will be updated: Mail") and the installation of Mail fails every time with one of the following errors: -

Couldn't install these programs: Mail

An unknown error occurred.
Error: 0x00000001
Source: Mail

Or sometimes it's this one: -

Couldn't install these programs: Mail

It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working.

What this other program could be, I have no idea. The only apps that run in the background when I boot my PC are PS3 Media Server and Virtual CloneDrive and I've tried disabling those, but it doesn't help.

So I'm now stuck. I can't uninstall Mail because the uninstaller doesn't even recognise it as being installed. I can't update it because the install fails every time. Trying System Restore didn't h... Read more

I've got an Dell inspiron 1300 with XP sp3.

There is a windows installer popup that is asking for instal disks for Corel Photo Album 6. I don't have the disks as the computer never came with them. In my research for a fix, I have found that sonic update manager was the culpret for other people.

I have the option to cancel the setup, but when I do it immediatly starts right back up.

I tried uninstalling the corel program, but windows won't let me install or uninstall anything while that windows installer is still up. I can't even shut down properly. If I end the process via the task manager, it starts right up again.

I have tried using AdvancePCTweaker. AdvancePCTweaker was able to install and run, and I tried uninstalling Sonic Update manager, which in my research found to be a likely cause. I tried to uninstall it, but I once again was blocked by the windows installer that was already running. Sonic update manager appears in the add/remove programs list, but it does not have an option to remove it.

I also tried running the Windows Installer CleanUP Utility, but it would not install because of the already opened windows installer.

I reinstated Windows Mail on my 32-bit computer running Windows 7 Professional. As your tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ows-mail-.html warned, Windows Mail didn't reinstate correctly until I uninstalled Windows LIVE mail 2011 (it didn't break my heart to do THAT!). But now, everytime I log into Windows Mail I am asked whether I want it to be my default email program. I click "yes," but then next time I log on to Windows Mail, I'm asked the same thing. I've gone into Ctrl Panel>Internet Options>Programs>Set Programs>Set Default Programs, but Windows Mail is not an option there. I know someone in a previous thread said that this can be cured by installing Windows LIVE mail (or Incredimail, which I've not hear of), and then there would be two email programs to choose from--not none, as I have now. Then, in theory, from that "list" I could select Windows Mail as the default.

I am reluctant to do that at this point. I have a sneaking suspicion that this problem may be related to the fact that Windows Mail appears ONLY as a Shortcut in my Start Menu. I can't find it listed as a full program anywhere (i.e, in the Uninstall Program list or All Programs). When I followed the reinstate tutorial, I was unable to manually edit the registry key because at the HKEY_CURRENT_USER &quo... Read more

A:Can't make Windows Mail default email program

Hi MarneWY. Can't help you much on setting Windows Mail permanently as default but here's my story. Like you I used the Windows Mail reinstate hack since Windows 7 did not ship with an Email program. Works just fine for my needs. Then I tried to install the just released SP1 update and it will not install on my machine with the hack in place. Unfortunately there is no "hack reversal" proceedure so I ended up having to do a CLEAN windows install - lot of hours. I'l have to do the same for my daughters laptop as I modified hers too. Now, after I got mine reloaded, I installed Windows Live Mail and found it to be a quite acceptable Email Prog. I had avoided it at first because I thought you had to have a Live ID and that my email would be stored somewhere on MS servers. Not so. Everything is still on my machine and the learning curve for WLM has fairly easy. Wish I had not jumped so fast on the Windows Mail reinstatement.. Anyway, one man's story. I wish you luck with your quest.

We have two computers now and used to have one. hooked up a router and everything works fine. My question is how do you set up outlook express using the sam ISP for both on different computers.
such as

Now say the person using the 2nd computer say his name is Dave Chuckles so he would want the e-mail address of [email protected]

How would or could you set that up because when it asks for your password when setting it up you have to give them the same password that you got from the same ISP and then it doesn't work. Is there a way to do that? They want to use outlook express to not hotmail or incredimail or yahoo mail or gmail would like to use outlook express. Is there away,

An elderly friend of mine ordered a new laptop, and asked me to help her get it set up. We did fine until we came to email. Her 8-yr-old Dell system used Outlook Express (ewww) with the POP userid that the local cable company, who provides our broad-band Internet, had set up for her years ago. Not surprisinly, I couldn't find Outlook Express on her new Win7 laptop. Windows Help informed me that it was no longer included in Windows, and that the replacement was Windows Live Mail. It asked me if I wanted to install that, and I said I did. I picked "Run", and the install program ran successfully and informed me that it needed to restart the system to complete the install, to which I agreed. When the system came back up, I was suprised that there was not a WinMail icon on the desktop or in the taskbar. I opened the Start Menu to look for it, but was unable to find anything about Windows Live Mail. The folder named "Windows Live" contained only one icon, for "Windows Live Mesh". There were also single entries for some photo and other useless stuff, but nothing for mail.

Some Googling on the Internet turned up a note that you could run it manually by entering "winmail.exe" in the Run box. Things went from bad to worse when I discovered that this laptop doesn't have a "Run' button on its Start Menu!! I have no idea why - on my Win7 box, it is between "Help and Support" and "Shutdown".

I say this only half facetiously.

Ditch Windows Live Mail due to the ridiculousness you are experiencing. It's enmeshed in the whole Windows Live morass that I doubt your elderly friend needs.

Something like Thunderbird is a standalone email app that can be configured to highly resemble Outlook Express--which I used for years and wish was still around. I don't like web mail.

Actually, no facetiousness at all. That's my considered opinion.

My computer is about 6 years old, it is running Windows Vista Home Premium.
Now when I try to open Windows Mail the following happens:
I get a window titled "Windows Mail Storage Recovery" that says: "Recovering the Windows Mail Database". That window disappears and I now get a window titled "WinMail.exe" that says: " Windows mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows Mail message store. Windows Mail was unable to locate its message database. If you've move the database files to a new location, click OK to Reset the database path to that location. Otherwise, click Cancel to proceed, any existing messages found will be available under Orphaned Accounts. (0x00000000).
I click on the OK button and I get a Window titled "Browse for Folder" which already has the "Windows Mail" folder highlited. I click on the OK button and I get a Window titled "WinMail.exe" that says: "Windows Mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows Mail Message Store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. (0x80004005). I click on the OK button and I get a Window titled "Windows Mail" that says: "Windows Mail could not be start... Read more

A:Installed & Cloned New Hard Drive - Windows Mail wont open

Well...a cloned drive is an exact copy...so programs that worked before should work on the cloned drive, assuming no drive problems.  I'd have to assume that problems now...were problems before the clone was made.
Why did you change drives and clone?
Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.

MS and their mail systems are giving me grief. I have a Vista 32 PC using "Windows Mail" and want to transfer email folders (lots) and messages to Windows 7 using Windows Live Mail 2011.

Note: Windows Mail was a replacement for Outlook express on Vista.
Windows Live Mail 2011 is a replacement for Windows Mail on Windows 7.

I tried a couple of things.

1) Basic Export and ImportI exported relavent files: Account info, Contacts and all the messages to a folder (in Windows Mail format) on old computer and used the old "Addias" transfer - copied folder to stick and RAN it over to the new computer.
- Imported (using the Windows Mail format) the Account info successfully,
- imported the Contact info successfully.
- Import Messages - appeared at first to be successful

Issue: Message folders appear to be renamed and some folder names have been truncated, not all folders appear to be there. (Looks like "long Name folders greater that 8 characters get truncated)


2) Tried the "Easy transfer mechanism (Vista and Win7 transfer utility) - but couldn't get the new computer to see the Vista even though I could see them on the network. I thought that this would transfer the folder names correctly.
I'm about to try a time consuming effort of coping folder by folder (export/Import)
What I am more concerned about is that the individaul messages may have the same issue Ie not all coming accross and subject names being lost.

A:Solved: Troubles transferring Windows Mail Vista to Win7 Windows Live Mail 2011

I get a little nauseous just thinking about Windows Live Mail 2011, much less expending effort to use it, but I would try installing it on the Vista and see if it has the option right up front of importing stuff from Windows Mail. If it does, and happens to work correctly, then all you would have to do is find its files and copy them over.

By the way, are you putting on airs with "Addias" transfer? We plebeians just used "sneaker net."

I cannot figure out how to get all of my email stores moved from my old PC (Windows Vista/Windows Mail) to my new PC (Windows 7/Outlook 2013). Is there a way to successfully do this or do I need to give up?? When trying to use the export function for messages in windows mail it comes up with an error message to say 'The export could not be performed. An error accured while initializing MAPI.' All my email accounts are POP3. I did find the email stores and transfered them manually to the new PC but I opened them on the new PC in outlook then only a small fraction of emails was there and they were all jumbled up and my folder structure did not transfer. Can this transfer be done or not? Hope to get some useful answer. Cheers, Torsten.
