Windows 7: Block sender list does not work

02 Dec 2011   #11

windows 7 home premium 64 bit

Re the "repair" of Windows Live Essentials.........
You're almost there.........
To do the repair, once you're in Programs and Features, right click on Windows Live Essentials, left click on "uninstall/change", and then you'll receive the option to repair Windows Live Essentials........left click on the repair and let it rip.........(see the attached)

IIRC, it's a bug in WLM 2011 that you have to do a "repair" to fix this problem. Use "Control Panel>>Programs and Features" to do a repair of "Windows Live Essentials".
roncurr; I carried out the repair ok. It appeared to solve the problem in that a junk address is added to the blocked senders list and a message saying so is displayed. However; when you restart Windows Live mail and recheck the blocked senders list; the offending item has removed itself. Example is "" A similar address "" is blocked and remains on the blocked senders list
