Windows Live

Merry Chrimbo everyone.

Have been given a laptop as present with windows 7. As outlook express is not an option for emails I am having to use Windows Mail.

I successfully downloaded McAfee Security Centre. The only problem I have come across is that the spam option does not appear to work.

No toolbar or Spam folder are displayed.

However I think I read somewhere that it is not compatible at the moment with Windows Mail.

So can someone confirm this before I start playing with my settings.

Sometimes after a new email client is installed the email tool bar gets disabled, Kindly follow the follow the below steps;

Close all open programs in the computer,

Click Start, search, type CMD, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator. 
Type CD C:\ProgramFiles\McAfee\MSK and press ENTER.

Open your mail account, the antispam tool bar should be available

Re: Windows Live

From what I've found out is Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and Thunderbird are the only email programs compatible with the anti spam. Did you try contacting Technical Support Chat found at the top of this page under Useful Links? They should be able to tell you more about this regarding Windows 7
