Windows 7: AWOL Windows Live Mail after update

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1
AWOL Windows Live Mail after update

After installing what appears to be a Windows Live update, now, each time I start Windows Live Mail, the pop-up logo appears for it, but, the window for the inbox doesn't. Then, I have to click to bring the window forward into view, which 2 out of 3 times it will appear as a smaller than usual window.

Since it is being launched from a button on my taskbar and not from a shortcut it's not likely being started minimized. I did have a startup shortcut that ran it minimized before the update took precedence of it.
