    Running XP SP3 and ZWindows Live Mail for email

    Computer Locked while WLM was receiving messages in background. Had to hard
    reboot. When computer came back up tried to restart WLM. Got a message WLM
    needs to rebuild the database, a few seconds later message that WLM need to
    shut down. Whether you click yes or no to send info to microsoft program just
    shuts down.


    1 - Repair WLM through the control panel remove programs option.
    2 - Removed all WL components and reinstalled newest version from microsoft
    3 - Repaired that version through the control panel also.
    4 - Ran both Registery Mechanic and RegCure

    All just result in same 2 messages. All other programs operating correctly I

    If anyone has suggestions I would appreciate the help. I have my
    messages/contacts/accounts all backed up as this was done on 3/2/09 so loss
    of that is not a issue.

    Thank you Peter,

    When I do that I get:

    Recovering the WLM Database in upper left and then in Middle:

    WLM could not be started. The application was unable to open WLM message
    store. WLM was unable to locate its message data base. If you have moved the
    database files to a new location click OK to reset the database path to that
    location. Otherwise click cancel to proceed, any existing messages found will
    be available under Orphaned Accounts. (0x000000000.2)

    Then regardless whether you choose OK or cancel:

    Windows live Mail could not be started. The application was unable to open
    WLM message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk full.

    I have 4 gigs of memory and 298 gig open on the discs.

    Thanks agin for your efforts.
