A recent Trend program (details not specified) is among the programs
that cause problems in Windows Mail, and needs to be uninstalled,
not just disabled, to stop it from causing problems.
You may want to replace it with avast!, preferably custom installed
to tell it to leave out the part to scan email: http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html
The way such problems are caused is slow; it can take weeks or months
before the problem starts showing up.
