Windows 7: WLM endless download loop

WLM endless download loop

When I enter WLM, it doesn't get out of downloading mail. When I try to exit the program, I see that it's rapidly downloading 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 messages (which I do not have on my email server). It appears to be stuck in this loop. I don't know what, if anything, I did to cause this.

I thought about repairing the installation, but there is no listing for WLM in Programs or under Windows Live Essentials.

Help, please. Thanks.

Problem solved. It was an AVG issue.

Control Panel/Programs and Features/Windows Live Essentials/

At the top of the P&F window is an "uninstall/change" button which opens a window in which you choose to uninstall or repair your complete installation of Windows Live Essentials. Even if you've only installed WLM there are several components that can be repaired, one of which is called "Mail". At the end of the repair process it gives you a list of all the Live Essentials programs you have installed that were repaired, one of which will simply be called "Mail".

If that doesn't work you can uninstall Windows Live Essentials which should make it dissappear from P&F entirely. Then go back to the original install file on your PC to choose which Live Essentials you want. Start with just the mail program until you're happy it's working. You can always go back to the file to download more of the Essentials. To find the install file just type wlsetup-web in the start/search box.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I realized that it took a double click on the Windows Live Essentials to bring up the uninstall or repair buttons. I did that, but as I said, it was an AVG problem, not a WLM issue. After I reinstalled AVG, WLM worked fine.

Did that also fix the XML file sending problem?

Nope. I'm wondering if it's an AVG problem, not WLM. I might close AVG and try it.
