Default Windows Live mail - Windows 7 Home premium

I have just upgraded my netbook from Win 7 Starter to Win 7 Home Premium.

Before the ugrade I used Windows Live Mail (WLM) as my email software.

Now when I try to load WLM I get the following error message which I find (as usual) very unhelpful.

"WLM could not be started. Closing WLM. Your calendar contains corrupt data which is forcing WLM to close
0x8E5E0247"

So I am told something that I already know - WLM will not load. What I am not told is how to overcome the problem.

Any ideas as to how I correct the data in a calendar that I have never used.

I found this on another forum:

Anyone recieving the 8E5E0247 Error trying to login to Windows Live Msgr and/or Windows Update who has an INTEL processor & Hard Drive over 300Gb must install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Software. This will solve your problems.

Here's a link to the Intel website where you can download the driver: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...l%C2%AE+RST%29

Good luck!
