I have need some assistance with Windows Live email.
I have used this email system for a long time, but due to a reboot I lost all email live.
I have reloaded windows essentials and window live is now available.
However it asked me to put in some system information. Although I have some info that was supplied by BT when the broadband was installed I don't think I have used it correctly.
A message comes up Server error 0x800CCC90.
Hope you can help.

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you. Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse. I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps. Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong. If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me. Thanks, Richard
