    Windows Live Mail has its own newsgroup, to which I will
    cross-post this reply.

    A WLM expert will be responding in that newsgroup:
    microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop
    via your news reader; or via a browser:

    Completely Remove WLM. Reinstall all Windows Updates(none have been for WLM).
    If WLM was installed, the Msi file is on your machine. No need to download again.

    I don't use a cleaning program, thus can't offer any advice..imo most are snake oil.
