Windows 7: email error windows live mail/server error 0x800CCC90

david already answered the licensing question: Yes you can use the exisitng product key over and over
re: product code and your notes
Use the COA on the sticker first, your notes might refernce an Office product - not sure (I can't decipher my notes either ). If that fails you might have to activate Windows using the phone option. Since you've only install one previous time and it was over a year ago, it is doubtful that the key has been flagged, but you never know.

Ms is fairly good about their licensing.

Windws 8 - dunno. If I were moving to Eight, I would not get the RT version, get the Pro. I've heard a lot of grumbling about Eight, but that doesn't mean much - I've heard a lot of grumbling every time MS does something new. People resist change and they grumble
I've heard a lot of good things about Eight, mostly great perfomance and speed.

I've only been on Seven for anout a year and am in no rush to move to Eight. Do you need it? What does it offer that Seven doesn't?

Go to an office store and play for a while on one of their systems. See if you feel comfortable with eight, learn a little about it first.

re: WDO log file
I found the answer right here on SF! Windows Defender Offline
The log files for Windows Defender Offline are stored in a MPLog-MM/DD/YYYY-HH/MM/SS .txt file in the folder below on the computer that was scanned at boot.
C:\Windows\Windows Defender Offline\Support

email error windows live mail/server error 0x800CCC90

Thanks guys, I have made up my mind to do the re-install; just have not decided when to do it. Probably one day next week. I have already made a boot disk for Windows 7, SP1 and have backed up most of my files to a personal media drive.
I am just looking for the time and someone to borrow a laptop from to use when I get in a bind and things turn sour to get out of the bind. Thhe point is there is no reason to pursue this email problem any more. I am certainly not going to use windows essentials live mail for my email client. However I think the problem is a server problem. My Iphone 4 has quit receiving my emails from Live mail now as has Postbox. My wife's bellsouth account which is a sub account with bellsouth to my account which is default, continues to send receive while my account is not consistent. Actually, I am sick and tired of talking about it anymore. What makes it outrageous is there are thousands out there going through the exact same problem and like me they just can't fire the AT&T bums.

My reason for the clean reinstall is the awfully slow performance , especially boot time. Even running msconfig with no start up items it's a real dog.

Thanks again, it's been an education in more ways than one and I appreciate it and you all...
