    Uninstalling Windows Live Mail

    I would like to un-install Windows Live Mail but don't see it in the un-install programs list or in Revo un-installer...

    The only thing listed is Windows Live Essentials..

    When you uninstall WLE you choose which programs from Essentials you wish to uninstall. WLM is one component of the WLE suite.

    Thank you Ted....
    I knew it was part of essentials but I thought all would be removed and I like movie maker and didn't want to lose that...

    I'm glad we are in the same time zone...

    I installed Windows Mail in Windows 7, not live mail, and I may have had to remove essentials but it turned out I didn't...

    I feel like I got my old Outlook Express back..

    Only problem is there is no address book in it except when you send messages. Windows Mail only has a contacts list.

    @Banyarola, may I ask how you installed Windows Mail without uninstalling WinLiveMail? I just read about the process in sevenforum & it said that there would be problems if both were installed.
    I've been at my wits end over email since my old PC crashed & I bought new with Windows 7. Have tried several email programs & not happy with any so was about to install Incredimail but came here 1st to close out all my other posts when I found kellianns reply to mine about 'DreamMail' & am now on hold again.
    Thanks,
    grits
    p.s. Sorry about posting this in this thread but you opened the door.

    I didn't un-install Live Mail.
    Matter of fact, it still works..

    On startup it just asks if I want to make it the default mail program.

    On 7forum it says there MIGHT be problems and if so THEN you should un-install live mail.

    But, if there is a conflict I wouldn't know because I never really used Live Mail...

    I don't know why I didn't ask this in the 1st place: Can you please tell me how you got WinMail installed? Did you use DrWho's method or something else? I sooo want to try it due to reading that it's very similar to Outlook Express. Otherwise I'm going to have to settle for incredimail.
    I think I also asked the same question of kelliann but haven't found a reply yet.
    Thank you.

    It was pretty easy to do.
    Just print out the instructions and download the files they provide.

    I made an image before I did it but it went just fine and I'm using it now.

    Pay particular attention to what they say about 32bit and 64bit...

    Thanks Banyarola,

    I 'think' I understand the 32bit/64bit difference. Will have to get my printer going, right now it's not up to snuff with Win7.
    I am lost tho' about making an image? The only thing I've done along those lines since I got this new PC was to make the 4 disks for e-machine recovery.

    An image is a system backup so you can restore your system if something goes wrong..

    Macrium has a free image program you can check out at http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx

    When making an image you usually make it to another drive like an external hard drive..

    There is a forum here that you can also check out at http://windowssecrets.com/forums/for...curity-Backups


    I don't use Macrium, I use True image which you have to pay for.

    I thought I was being sooo smart & did the 'quicker' batch file as per EKMantis on page 112 but now find how dumb I really am ! After I unzip, & open next folder, there's 6 files (?) but now I don't know what to do. Will try to paste a shot to show you what I have. Can you help me thru' it so I can finally get WM?

    I didn't use those so I can't help you with that..
    I would suggest that you just ignore what you already have done and follow the instructions that were given...

    You have to understand that you are NOT INSTALLING WM...You are just activating it because it's already in Windows 7 but can't be accessed until you follow the instructions on how to activate it.

    Like I said earlier, print out the instructions and follow them step by step and you wont have any problems.
