I use IE9 and have no problems. What about that very last line: UPDATE: The IE 9 security patch from October 11, 2011 seems to fix these issues. See MS11-081: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer: October 11, 2011.

I tried to install the patch but got a message saying that it didn't apply to my system. I use Firefox so it wasn't a problem uninstalling IE9

Pity because some processes do whether or not you know it and IE8 is less secure. Perhaps that hotfix was already installed?

I have completed the tutorial and have been able to open winmail.exe. Two questions that I have I search this thread but couldn't find an answer to:
1. after this process I have two files on my desktop both called "desktop.ini" Can I delete them or move them somewhere other than my desktop? What are they?
2. will my attachments be moved if I follow the tutorial to move my email messages and folders? I have them on another computer and can copy them onto a USB flash drive or use PC Mover (which I have not yet done). Any suggestions?

I read the tutorial for moving emails, and know where the windows mail "app data" is on the old machine. But aren't the attachments in some other folders? Where would windows mail keep attachments in windows 7? If I remember, one of the things I didn't like about windows mail was that I couldn't specify where attachments were.
thanks

Is there a way to install this patch other than AutoUpdate? I don't see it listed in history for my computer, but it says I am up to date.

By the way, that's how it would be listed in WU if installed: KB2559049

I should have mentioned I am running Vista; however, I am having the same problems with Windows Mail as described in this thread. (The link above is for Windows 7).

OK well as these are the Windows 7 forums I didn't suspect that. Here are all the search results, you pick the right one form the list, note it goes on for several pages: Search results - Microsoft Download Center

Hmm. I am suprised nobody created an open source version of Windows Mail or Outlook Express that works just like the real thing including populating hotmail via their email client and creating the same directories/folders as you have in hotmail instead of just merging them now into your inbox like Thunderbird and other clients.

I know for me, I still MUST use IE since Google Toolbar requires it and only works in IE and no other browser, even Chrome!
