You need to take a breath and describe starting from when things were working fine and what you did (more detail than "follow instructions"). Also, what do you mean by "lock up" starting with booting up from a powered off state?

Windows 7 doesn't have a "reset" to click. Maybe you mean "restart". Try shutdown, remove power, restore power, and let it boot up. What happens then?

As you know, the tutorial is not supported by Microsoft and it's hard to trouble shoot a "lock up" problem that happens when you click on a shortcut to Windows Mail. That should not happen if there was nothing wrong with your hardware and software to begin with. I'd delete the shortcut and go back to using a supported version of mail. See if your system works fine that way, as supported by Microsoft and the manufacturer.

You should have a plan for what to do if your hard drive goes bad and your system won't boot. That includes regular backups of your important data and some sort of install media that should have come with the PC. Should you ever have a need or desire to do that, the next step will be a lengthy process of doing all the important Windows Updates and perhaps Windows Security Essentials (instead of Avast). If you dislike the supported Windows Live Mail, you can always try the Tutorial before installing a supported mail program at that time.

No where in the instructions does it ask you to go into the registry and verify what you're asking, which doesn't make sense anyway.
Rest assured that all necessary registration information needed for the process is taken care of automatically.

Create a proper effort and respect into your post and you may get a better response.
Your first post is incomplete and undecipherable,
Your second post is impatiently disrespectful really.
Roncerr asking you to take a breath is quite polite, I'll try and be that patient.

The procedure if followed exactly is foolproof for the average+ user.

If you specifically follow the directions given on the "ReWinMail_tutorial.html" that you get when unzipping the Win74umsZip.zip into it's proper location in the Downloads folder, and then reading/following that ReWinMail_tutorial.html process exactly starting from # 2. and executing the steps from within that Downloads folder to reinstate WM - is foolproof 'if' you follow the directions properly, and takes no more than five minutes.

The fact that it's hanging on you is exactly because you haven't done the process correctly and so WM cannot start in its uncompleted stage and so hangs, but when you follow the "ReWinMail_tutorial.html" directions exactly, all necessary changes are applied, and it Will Work, every time.

Thanks endeavor, sorry it took me sooo long to reply. (see post #1378 at page 138)

Are you saying that 'Merge' will stop my loss of WM should I ever run SFC or that's a way to get it back? As for your other method, something about "reg code" , I'm completely lost there.

If I do the Merge, do I just click on that word? Sorry, don't recall ever doing it before .

Hi Grits,

Yes.
The answers and reasonings are still all the same as I have told you in that Previous Post.

In your case since you've previously run the tutorial already then you can just merge that reg to set those two simple registry entries back - but they were there! ..and so something you did removed them is all, and there are No MS Updates ''beyond SP1'' as of yet that will remove them so I'm not sure what you did. fwiw, when your first installed the tutorial though that WinMailEdit.reg was merged automatically.

In that post I gave you three choices to add those two registry entries back which prevents SFC from breaking WinMail, and your screenshot is showing me you have chosen the 'second' way to fix - if that's the easiest for you; and so as your screenshot shows you right clicking on the WinMailEdit.reg, and so just click Merge yes, that's it, as long as your security settings allow the simple task of merging the reg file.
