Thankyou Grzegorz for your patience and advice, I now have a shortcut to my Windows Live Mail on my desktop.

The solution resolved itself when I attempted to uninstall Windows Live Essentials, but I thought I might try the `Repair` button first, so after a long repair and a restart I then found, to my delight, on the Start menu was `WINDOWS LIVE MAIL` which was easily dragged tomy desktop!

Also thank you all who have offered me advice to solve this anoying problem.

                       THE FILE C:\ Program cannot be found

                      Any ideas?

You put a space in between the \ and Program in your example. Take out the space. Alternatively you can find Windows Live Mail in the all programs in the start menu, and copy it to the desktop.   My"> favorite threads | Computer tips       Contact me | 'Gadget' programs              (Join my Folding@home team! )

Hi,

             No space when entering location!

            No Windows Live Mail in ` all programs ` the start menu.

             Can only enter Windows Live Mail via the `Docking Bar ` on desktop

Another way to find it in Start Menu: press Start > type in Search box: Windows Live Mail > wait for the result > copy to your desktop.

About previously mentioned path... if this is Windows 7 64 bit version, you should check isn't it located at ...\Programs Files (x86)\...

You are using Windows Live Mail as your email client right? Or are you talking about something else?   My"> favorite threads | Computer tips       Contact me | 'Gadget' programs              (Join my Folding@home team! )

Find the Windows Live Email link in your Start menu.  Right-click it, and then choose Send To:  Desktop (Create Shortcut)
