Windows 7: Windows Live Mail won't open or delete mail

If not, then unistalling and reinstalling Avast without the email shield option checked is what fixed it for me.

Thanks for Help

I started having problems with Windows Live Mail shortly after installing Bitfinder Antivirus Free Edition. Following your suggestions, I uninstalled this program and my Live Mail problem went away. Thanks for your suggestion and thanks for maintaining this forum.:)
