Causes of Windows® Live Mail Crashing and Ways to Solve the Problem
Windows-based Operating Systems (OS) are very popular because of their usability and simplicity. Windows-based Operating Systems can be installed with many applications and customized. Windows Live Mail is one such application for Windows computers. Windows Live Mail as the name suggests is primarily an e-mailing application and it can be used for sending, receiving, forwarding and all other e-mail related tasks. Windows Live Mail is far superior to other e-mailing applications as it comes packed with many advanced features. Some of the features of Windows Live Mail include photo e-mail feature (to send high resolution digital photographs), enhanced security, multiple e-mail support, custom layouts with quick views, RSS directly in inbox, direct blogging and so on. However, there are some issues that might come up with the use of Windows Live Mail. These issues include Windows Live Mail crashing, Windows Live Mail not responding, Windows Live Mail showing error messages etc.
The following details gives you more information regarding ways to fix Windows Live Mail crashing issues:
- Scan for Infections
- Clear Registry Errors
- Repair Operating System
Scan for Infections
Windows Live Mail installed on your system may be crashing because of malware infections within the system. Malware infections cause problems by infecting system files and damaging them. Malware may have infected the application when malware infected e-mails were downloaded by the application. All users with Windows Live Mail issues are advised to scan the system for malware using an updated antivirus program and if some malwares are found, removing the infections will automatically resolve the issue.
Clear Registry Errors
Windows Operating Systems have a database of information known as the system registry. It contains all the information regarding the working of applications installed on the system and if the registry entries of Windows Live Mail are involved in some conflicts with some other registry entries, the application might crash. Users facing Windows Live Mail crashing issues are suggested to clear unwanted registry clutter from the system using registry cleaning software. This will prevent registry entries of Windows Live Mail from clashing and also prevent a subsequent Windows Live Mail crash.
Repair Operating System
Another reason as to why Windows Live Mail installed on your system crashes include damage to system files associated with the functioning of Windows Live Mail. Damage to system files mean that Windows Live Mail will run into errors as damaged files are invoked resulting in application crashes. Such issues can be solved by repairing system files on the OS using the default OS repair tool and the installation disc. If some changes to system files on the OS have caused Windows Live Mail to crash, then restoring the OS to a time when Windows Live Mail was working will also solve the issue.
