Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

The three files below are what show, in numerical order, as I double-click the installer, wlsetup-web.exe, and get to the page to install. I select Mail and deselect the one component showing with an "x" ...there are no other components showing an "x"...and then start the installation. I'm told that the entire Windows Live program is installing. Is this what I should see? There is no box to tick with an "x" next to Mail, so I just want to make sure.

The pics show and tell you that you already have the mail programme and a few others that will be updated if you chose to install family safety. Look in programmes and features and see if windows live essentials is installed, or click start orb and type into search windows live mail and see if it shows in menu list.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thank you, I appreciate the help! Live mail is, in fact, already installed, but Microsoft wants too much identifying information, principally zip code, if I wish to create a new account or update an old one, so I'll pass and continue to struggle with Gmail Notifier : /

An alternative solution?

You could take a look at Gmail Notifier Pro if you like.

You don't need to use the paid for version and you don't need to set it as your default email client.

If you install it you can set it to notify you of new mail with either a pop up alert or a sound notification or both. It works best with IMAP Gmail and you can add other email accounts. You can choose to read mail in Gmail Pro or else read mail via launching your browser.

You can set message check delay and message check frequency. You don't need to let it start with windows. You can run it on demand.
