THANKS for attempt to problem has nothing to do with SpellChecker + you cannot even open Live Mail Program to do what was suggested...........because before the program opens you get the BUMMER mesage.
I downloaded and reinstalled the whole LIVE package, did NO good! Next I will try uninstalling ALL Live Programs and then re-download and install them.

Anyone know of a good alternative EMail program that I could use instead of W' Live?

My WLM Stopped working/Workaround....

After Much experimenting I finally got WLM 2009 working Slowly again (I like WLM2009's GUI Much better, and downloaded it from disable your AV for All install/uninstalls)......

There isn't a bug, WLM is just VERY slow bloatware &...

After trying Auslogics/Puran I find that free Defraggler is the best defrag for system performance (replace windows defrag on install, and be sure to temp disable your AV during installation/defrag or it won't allow Hosts file changes...!).

There are 2 things you need to pre-do Before opening WLM (I have a pretty fast i7-2600 computer Win 7 Pro 32/4gig memory, with a 10k rpm Raptor sata6 HD so you may have to adjust your wait times accordingly.....?)-

1. Temp disable your AV's webguard (wait 1min).
2. If your browser is open, minimize it for 1min (I set IE to default, but browse with latest FF).
You will need a timer/second clock..., and if WLM stops working wait 2min to close or it will be corrupted (watch your HD light, WLM is still closing in background & I wait 5min before re-opening WLM).

1. Open WLM & let it load for 3min before doing Anything.
2. Now for the 30sec rule before final clicking ALL!- Pre-Put your cursor on what you want to click & Always wait 30sec after the bubble closes BEFORE/After clicking ANYTHING!
3. Go to Tools/Options/... & disable Send messages immediately (messages take 1min+ to final queue).
4. NEVER delete A message after viewing!- Close & wait 2min After all messages have been Viewed/Sent... to cleanup..., & then wait 3min before closing WLM (30sec rule on Xing out too!).

I know this is a time-consuming Hassle, but better than WLM constantly crashing!
