Windows 7: "Windows Live Mail has stopped working" - Files describe event; Fix?

"Windows Live Mail has stopped working" - Files describe event; Fix?

Three times in the last 24 hours this warning has opened on my Desktop, after I have just closed Windows Live Mail [WLM] . After the warning disappears from the Desktop, WLM opens yet again.

-wlm-has-stopped-working-20110604-0127.jpg

Naturally I've allowed the issue to be reported to MS and sent the information, but I note that there is also a File that describes the event, in this case:

C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp\WER21C8.tmp.hdmp

Is there any way that I may attempt to either fix or resolve this issue myself? For starters, I haven't a clue about how I access the quoted File, and if I did, I don't know what to do with it anyway.

Or is this yet another of those situations where you just grin and bear it until MS come up with something to resolve the issue? Hope not 'cos it's mildly annoying...

1) Ignore error message.
2) Do a "repair" of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features
3) Use the Disk Cleanup utility
3) Use sfc /scannow via the command prompt window.

I prefer WLM 2009's User Friendly GUI (filehippo.com), but it would randomly stop working (same with WLM 2011's bloatware)- Usually After a Send/Fw:!?

No amount of full re-installs/Repairs..., would make it go away?
Well after Googling Many forums, I Finally found the Easy Solution!-

Go to Tools/Spelling, scroll down & select your Language Editor, and make it Default...

ENJOY!

Mate! I must be thicker than 10 bricks in lentil soup!!

Can you please post a snip of exactly where you are referring to. Or a search stream.. eg;

here > to here > select here > to here > etc.

By the way, an attempt to repair in Live Essentials [as advised above] repeatedly failed through 'loss' of Internet connection...using Wifi - very frustrating that a connection to repair could not be made, as that would seem to be the optimum method of repair.

Cheers

Either that or you are using WLM 2011! The instructions I gave are for 2009 where there is a simple menu bar with a "Tools" item. However I'm sure the 2011 ribbon interface has an icon that will provide the Tools or Options window. Good luck finding it.
