Windows 7: finding windows live mail contacts folder - hlep!

10 Jan 2014   #11

x64 (6.3.9600) Win8.1 Pro & soon dual boot x64 (6.1.7601) Win7_SP1 HomePrem

Your Desktop is a slightly newer version of WE 2012, but I would not expect that to cause this issue.

Let's try a simple repair using the WE utility wlarp

Exit all WE applications

Click on the Start menu orb and type
wlarp in the search box

at the top of the results, you should see
Programs (1)

Click on that wlarp,
answer yes to the authorization prompt (UAC)

The Uninstall or Repair Windows Essentials Progams dialog is presented
Click on Repair all Windows Essentials Progams

This might take some time - let it run to completion, then restart your machine

See if that solves the missing icons issue.
