Windows 7 Mail is at best decent and is prone to "stop working" for no valid reason I can see. I have it running on a Windows 7 machine and the messages are not tied to specific emails (that is, some but not all).

Try running System File Checker. From an administrative Command Prompt, run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete.

Restart and test.

There are a couple of things you can try, one more aggressive than the other.

1. Back up your email (C:\users\username\appdata\local\microsoft\windows live mail . Then uninstall Windows Live Essentials. (Programs and Features0. Restart, and run Windows Update to install Live Essentials. I think your mail should still be there.

2. Run Windows Repair Install. Back up your computer first and then review this Seven Forums Tutorial below.

Please let us know after either or both of these steps.
