Are you the OP?
What Operating System are you using?
What version of WLMail do you have (Help->About Microsoft Windows Live Mail)?
I am not sure what you mean by "I am getting live hotmail instead of live mail"...
Are you talking about the default for e-mail links and such?
To set Windows Live Mail as default:
Ensure Windows Live Mail is set as the default e-mail program in all the relevant places as follows:
Firstly, Microsoft Outlook can silently steal some of the the e-mail defaults when you open it, so if you have Outlook installed, uncheck the option: "Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar" at Tools->Options...->Other [tab] in Outlook. It may also reset itself as the default e-mail handler after an update.
In Vista, apart from making WLMail the default Mail and News handler at WLMail's Tools->options...->General [tab], also set all its defaults through: Start Orb->Control Panel->Internet Options->Programs [tab]->Set programs [button]->Set your default programs->Windows Live Mail, and Windows Live Mail (news).
Also, follow that up by going to: Start Orb->Control Panel->Internet Options->Programs [tab]->Set programs [button]->Set program access and computer defaults->Custom, and check "Windows Live Mail" under "Choose a default e-mail program :"
In XP, apart from making Windows Live Mail the default Mail handler at WLMail's Tools->options...->General [tab], also ensure it is set as the default E-mail program through: Start->Control Panel->Internet Options->Programs [tab].
Then go to: Start->Set Program Access and Defaults->Custom, and check "Windows Live Mail" under "Choose a default e-mail program :"
If these actions fail to reset WLMail to the default e-mail handler, then change the default to some other e-mail program (E.g. Outlook Express/Windows Mail), then go back and change it to WLMail again.
