Hello Rachael sorry late reply those scan items just clear the lot it isalmost always junk / clutter.



By the by I see you are using gmail any reason? as I found it too"invasive" I use Hotmail and never a problem with it.

ICIT2LOL: OK - I've deleted all the unwanted items from the scan. Just to clarify, I don't use gmail. I use hotmail for the calendar reminders. I also have Orange.fr and BTcom email addresses that I have always used on Windows Live Mail.
As I've said before, the system used to work perfectly well. It's only the last 3-4 weeks that it's not been sending reminders.

Another question: Could it be my Bullguard security that I've got on the PC that has caused this problem.

Roderunner: I tried the link. Strangely enough I was already signed in. I created a test appointment with a reminder and I received an email alert. So that worked OK but obviously it doesn't show on my WLM as an event.

It would be nice to get everything back as it was - on one page rather than having to go from one programme to another.

So instead of opening Windows Live Mail do I open OneDrive instead. If so do I uninstall Windows Live Essentials and transfer everything to OneDrive/Outlook.com etc.

I've becoming more confused each day ..........

Hi George

I really appreciate all the time and effort you are putting into this explaining 'how to' but I'm really no further forward to finding a simple solution to suit my needs.

I've spent hours and hours going through forum after forum with people having the same problem as me. Weeks, months and years after this problem started, it seems that no-one can come up with a definitive answer and the problem cannot be fixed.

It only adds to other small problems within Microsoft that also cannot be fixed. As an example, try transferring files with long names to another drive. It cannot be done and there is no Microsoft solution after years and years of the problem - they just don't seem to want to address the problem. So I've resorted to getting a software programme to do it for me. With things like this, is it because Windows 10 has come out which means Windows 7 is slowly becoming obsolete. Even Microsoft themselves do not come up with any answer in their own forums.

I'm not having a go at you - in fact this is one of the forums that do make a real effort to help people along but I'm wondering if, from the screenshot in my message #3 that said 'Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files', that is where the problem lies. I replaced my hard drive with an SSD only a couple of months ago. I did a clean install of Windows then and everything has been working fine until this problem occurred.

Anyway, thank you very much again for your input.

Hello again George
'This link' is one of the sites I was looking at today. However, I cannot find your posting. Is there any chance you can send me the link please. It seems then that your solution is the only solution!

Hiyya Racheal problem still going and I am suggesting a reinstall of WLM might put it right it sounds a rather drastic solution and I know having all those emails download again is a pain but it is an option I would consider myself.
It just means going through all that wretched setting up of accounts but like I said I have done it in sheer frustration a few times before now.

Hi Rachel, sorry for the delay, couldn't find my post on Microsoft Answers.

Are you using this version of WLM.

Does your email show by default in the red box & it should be the one you sign in to WLM with.

Good evening George
The version I have of WLM is exactly the same as yours - see attachment (I had to Google how to find the version - things are never straight forward) and yes, the email shows the same address that I sign in with.
I've got to the stage where I think I'll call it a day with this. I might start to look for a standalone desktop calendar software programme, just to get me by, such as Rainlender. The reason I say that is that I think it's only a matter of time before we all have to update to Windows 10. I'm not looking forward to that at all. I've been very happy with Windows 7 until now....... I'm not very good with change and I believe if something is there, then it should work, and now this doesn't.
You've been very patient with me for which I am really grateful. I appreciate everything you've done to try to sort me out but I think we've come to the end of the line with this one.
Anyway, thanks again.
Regards Rachel
