Windows 7: Can't update Windows Live Mail or uninstall it

07 Dec 2010   #21

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
 
 

I tried setting the permissions on the registry key, but it wouldn't let me change them.

I also keep a system image on a spare hard drive (all my data is kept on a completely separate drive) so I tried restoring from that backup, but when I tried to update Windows Live Mail, I got the same error messages again, lol.

In the end, I formatted the partition and did a reinstall. I keep up to date installers for all my apps on a different partition, so it wasn't a major hassle to reinstall Windows then reinstall all my apps. All this hassle just to update one program, lol. Oh well, it's all sorted now, so thanks for your help.

I know your pain, even when as prepared as you are when ...we can't take it anymore and go for the clean install again.

Sorry we couldn't prevent the reinstall for ya.

...I'm sure you'll not have any problems now and thats a good thing.
