ok, i have a hp laptop running dual core intel, and has 4gb ram, 500gb hd. already factory defaulted and didn't help, what is happening is when using windows live email it crashes pretty often, sometimes work for a while then crashes. it's running win.7 home pre. have tried to upgraded to 2012 windows live and still same issue, seems though that it's the only program with an issue...everything else is fine. tested mem.w/ubuntu and it was fine, have ran advanced system care/malwarebytes/iobitmalware/avast and no probs. also turned off mail checking in avast and STILL the prob. exists...what the Hell? i also tried changing from html to text as someone said that solved their SAME prob. seems others are dealing with same issues....HELP

I have Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 and it used to "stop working" about once a month or so, although we never lost any work. Since the last batch of updates (post August 12, 2014), Live Mail has been trouble free.

Make sure all critical and recommended updates (both) are right up to date and see if that helps.

If not, back up your mail, uninstall Live Essentials (Programs and Features), restart and reinstall Live Essentials.

You can Repair Windows Live Mail.  Control Panel|Programs and Features|scroll down to Windows Live Essentials|click on it and you be offered Uninstall/Change.  Click that and choose Repair from the next screen.

Yes, I agree WLM is a bit flakey and crashes every now and then.  It does not seem to affect anything except waste a couple of minutes to get back up and running.

3 tips you may follow:
Scan your computer for infections again. A program I recommend is Comodo antivirus
You may also need to clear Registry Errors. Ccleaner produces very good results and easy to use.
As last option, you may also repair the Operating System

have tried ALL the above and still no solution...remember I reloaded the computer to factory settings, meaning a restore from hp recovery (format and load orig. os and drivers). All windows updates have been done..service packs too....it doesn't just crash every so often, it crashes all the time, meaning it may run for 3 min. or 1 hrs. but will crash several times in a few hour period, not usable the way it is....

windows live HAS been uninstalled, reloaded (several times), tried running just 2011 ver. it did the same thing, then tried the 2012 ver. ALL the same happens..... I could try comodo or ccleaner but remember I just wiped out the whole system, formated, restored via hp recovery process which puts it back in factory settings like it came out of the box....i just don't think that a virus would have got on there in a matter of min. unless the updates that ms does has them in there or the updates themselves are doing it....

>>  windows live email it crashes pretty often, sometimes work for a while then crashes.   <<  can you tell us more precisely how often it crashes?

since you reloaded the software - that's no likely to be the cause, but it "may" be a hardware problem

also -  does it crash also when surfing the net??

only wlive crashes, it's random, it's often , like i said eariler several times an hour..not on the net...i said earlier i tested the ram with ubuntu and it was fine...in event viewer it basically just says that wlive crashed, no disk errors, so unless the cpu is whacked which logically does not make sense as EVERYTHING else works fine...

Have you loaded legacy software on the machine such as old Office, old Adobe, and so on. That can affect things.

Run Reliability Monitor in Action Center and copy a Live Mail error so that you can paste the error here.

You could have a driver problem.
See Zigzag answer in this reference which had the same error as you
