    ERROR MESSAGE "Windows Live Mail Must Close"

    Live has been working just fine today the all of a sudden I started getting
    this error message saying "Sorry, something unexpected happened and Windows
    Live Mail must close. Your most recent changes may not be saved."

    I can still send and receive email but this message has me bothered!

    Any ideas?

    Force WLM to compact the data.
    Tools/Options/Advanced/Maintenance
    - change the Compact counter to 1
    Click Close/Apply/OK
    Click File/Work Offline
    Click File/Exit
    Minimize all other open Windows except WLM
    Ok the prompt to compact when the dialog box appears on your screen

    I get the same message. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and the error message keeps repeating but if i ignore it I can still receive and send email. I have tried the fix suggested and we'll see if it works. Must be a bug in the system. I tried installing WLM on my laptop and it worked fine for several days, then I got the same error.... I hope MS fixes this annoying bug because otherwise WLM is a pretty good option for me.

    Ok, I just did a complete uninstall of the program including deleting all
    windows live mail registry keys, anything in add/remove that had something to
    do with windows live mail, and the windows live mail contacts folder. I also
    disabled any anti-virus or spyware I had running at the time. Once the entire
    process was over it seemed o be working. I had also started getting a
    Windows Live Platform Communication Error. I looked that up and someone said
    their anti-virus caused a conflict, so I tried this to see what would happen.
