Windows 7: Windows Live Mail can't delet junk mail

Windows Live Mail can't delet junk mail

I'm running Windows Seven Ultimate on a AMD Athlon 2700 machine at 32 bit. I now have had two junk emails that I cannot delete. I get an error message saying an unknown error has occurred. I tried moving the email to the inbox, but it would not do it. I also went on my server, which is Comcast and these two emails are not there. I'm perplexed.

Can anyone help?

Hiya, welcome

Try turning off your anti-virus email scanner an see if it works then, Unknown Errors are usually cause by interference from your anti-virus email scanner.
before doing so though, wait for confirmation from someone more experienced than me.
