Windows 7: JPG attachments in Live Mail

JPG attachments in Live Mail

I am new to to Seven Forums and have a strange problem.
When I open a JPG attachment in Live Mail, it Immediately creates a folder in Recycle Bin named WLMDSS.tmp. Properties reveal the path C:\Users\Client\App Data\Local\Windows Live Mail\WLMDSS.tmp.Emptying the Recylce Bin does not remove the file from the System, it still remains at the above location. Disc Cleanup will not remove it. I have scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot, and Live One Care. All returned No infection. Can anyone Help?

Windows 8 Pro w/MC 32-bit

WLM 2011 has at least one bug (not the one you mentioned) that can be fixed by doing a repair install. It's easy to do so why not try it? Go to Programs and Features/Windows Live Essentials and choose a repair. It will repair all components of Essentials that are installed already, including Mail.

Thanks Roncerr,
I have already tried the repair you suggest. I have also tried Uninstall/Reinstall Live Mail only and Uninstall/Reinstall all Live Essentials. I have found instructions for a complete Uninstall of Live mail that requires editing the Registry. This is beyond by expertise currently so I will seek the help of a Tech.
Thanks again for your help.
