Windows Live Mail 2012 driving me nuts


  • I've just accidentally installed the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I was perfectly happy with the 2-year-old version I was using, but was attempting to install Movie Maker, which seemed to be missing from my version of Windows 7, and the Live Mail updated at the same time. It's driving me nuts. It keeps half-crashing (certain bits of the headers go black, for instance) and it's slow, and ugly, and simply doesn't seem to work as well as its many predecessors. I've been using things like Outlook Express etc since the 1990s and this is the first time I've seen a MS mail product crashing.

    So my first question is: Is this a common experience? And are there any remedies?

    And the second question is: How can I go back to the earlier version?
