Can't open Windows Live Mail. Help please!

This is the message I get -
"Windows Live Mail could not be started. It may not be installed correctly. Make sure that your disc is not full or that you are not out of memory. (0x80041161)"

Everything was working fine this morning but the problem started when I tried to check my mail mid-morning.

Any help would be appreciated.

Go to where you uninstall programs. In Windows 7 it is in Control Panel, then "uninstall a program". Then look for "Windows Essentials 2012". Click on that, and at the top it will say "Uninstall/Change". Then you will get two options, either to uninstall or repair. Choose the repair option.

If you have earlier Windows than 7 (e.g. Vista), I think you'll have the 2011 version, and it might be called "Windows Live Essentials" or similar.

See if that fixes things up.

presume you have restarted PC

Could be you had little space on your drive to begin with and windows 10 has downloaded and waiting to be installed and used it all up.
