Default Window keeps closing.

I have an EEE PC notebook with XP HE and I use Windows Live Mai.

This morning when I went to reduce the size of the screen - it immediately went down to the task bar, and the only option was to delete it. It only happens with Windows Live Mail.

Can anyone help please? (ps I didn't accidenally touch the minimise key either lol)

Judy

Get the latest version of WLM. There is a bug in there, most likely.

Yes, it is the latest. I was unsure which version you had. It might have an issue with XP.

Try uninstalling it, then re-install.

That's my solution to a problem like this, sometimes troubleshooting just is not worth the time.
