    I have been receiving the following message after I access Windows Mail.

    WMI PROVIDER HOST STOPPED WORKING AND WAS CLOSED.
    A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will
    notify you if a solution is available.

    Needless to say Windows has never responded with a solution or, hint as to
    what is causing this action.

    Would appreciate some help in getting this resolved.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Mac,
    I did what you said and, it appears that the problem is with "McAfee Spam
    Killer". After checking on the McAfee's website, I find that this has been an
    ongoing problem with McAfee and, that they are working on a solution. (Seems
    that they have working of it for quite a while)

    Again, thanks.

    I can only suggest that you remove McAfee from your system before it
    possibly corrupts your mail store?

    Get a free AV application from the web, I use AVG free, others use Avast
    free.

    Disable any email scan options.

    Also you might need this tool to remove McAfee:

    Thanks Steve,
    I did what you said and, determined that the problem is being caused by
    McAfee Spam Killer and, further found that it has been an ongoing problem
    with McAfee. They seem to continue saying that they are working on the
    problem, but yet have found the solution.

    Again, thanks for your help

  7. McAfee (and Norton) always have compatibility problems with Windows.
    There is only one solution that provides 100% relief.

    NOD32, while not cheap, works well with Vista.

  9. Avast! is free and does everything a home user needs.
    With any anti-virus, do a Custom install and don't install Email Scanning.
    It provides absolutely no additional protection and causes problems. It's
    just a marketing gimmick.

    I'm pretty sure that the above problem IS NOT caused by Mcafee.

    I say this (despite it contradicting every forum I have read on th
    issue) because I am running Vista Ultimatex64 on a Dell XPS 1710, and d
    not run McAfee. I do however have the same problem very frequently. I a
    running Trendmicro, but will this have the same effect and if so how d
    I cure this problem?

    Thank

    A recent version of the Trend antivirus software (details unknown) is
    also known to cause various problems in Windows Mail, although
    seldom immediately, and the only way to stop it from causing
    problems is to uninstall it.

    I'm not familiar with 64 bit antivirus software to replace it, but you
    might see if either avast! or AVG will work in 64 bits, preferably
    after a custom install that tells it to leave out the part that scans
    email:

    Thanks for the heads up. Since you are the first person I have see
    anywhere identify Trend as a culprit do you mind quoting your source
    Just making sure that you don't work for AVAST :D !!!!

    Unfortunately Trend was the best recomended x64bit software and I ma
    have to stick with it and just curse the error when it happens. O
    course if anyone out there CAN recommend a x64 bit antivirus I would b
    glad to hear about it.

    Previous problems on this newsgroup. I didn't record them.

    I'm retired, so I don't work for anyone.

    Avast doesn't charge for a free home version, so why should it
    make a difference?
