I received an answer from Brink about what you are trying to accomplish, Click here for his reply
, and I thought some more about your situation.
In order for http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
to work you would have to have an actual crash, so that would not work.
I then approached your problem from a different direction, and searched if there were any results for:
'windows live mail is running but not responding'
Your problem may be due to an update back on 1-11-2011. Microsoft's (MS) reasoning for for KB2454826 Attachment 164968 MS response when users started to complain 'Windows live mail (WLM) is running but not responding'.
Scroll down a bit, there is an automatic FixIt at this link.
This FixIt is dependent if:
This issue can be caused if all the following scenarios apply on your Windows computer:
- You have Intel integrated graphics driver Igdkmd32.sys (32-bit) / Igdkmd64.sys (64-bit) versions 22.214.171.1244 through 126.96.36.1991
- You have Windows Update KB2454826 installed on your computer
- You are using Windows Live Mail versions 15.4 and later
Source is at above link.
I have it, but I do not use WLM, so I have not noticed it.
As I see it there are two ways you can look at this:
You can un-install KB2454826 if you have it, and not worry about it. Make sure you do it in Safe Mode, and your machine is restarted!
Or use the FixIt, but MS is telling you, you will have to update your intel drivers
p.s. Thank you for putting your system specs in.
