Hyperlinks not working in Windows Live Mail

My OS is Win 7 32 bit with all updates and IE9 installed.

Today hyperlinks in Windows Live Mail emails that normally work, such as those in newsletters from PC World, no longer function, and the only way I can get to the linked article is bycopying the hyperlink and pasting it into the IE9 address bar.

WLM and IE9 have all their defaults.

Live Mail how to keep safe
I am new to Windows Live Mail and I have questions. This morning it said it was blocked because junk E Mail was being sent out. I had to change the password (for Live Mail) I guess. I know the mail was not sent from my computer.

How can I keep the Live Mail Account safe? Also the Live Mail page opens the mail on the right side of the page before you actually open the E Mail. Back in the old OE days that was bad because some viruses could activate.

Should I change that setup? When I close Live Mail does that close that account?

Posting pics in e-mails via Windows Live Mail ....
I recently bought a new computer and have Windows 7 after many years of Windows XP and an old version of Windows Live Mail.

My question is about sending pics directly in the text of an e-mail via Windows Live Mail. In the old version of Live Mail, you could send individual pics directly in the e-mail and even place captions under each pic.

The new version of Live Mail seems to only let you send pics as an attachment or as a photo album. And I don't see any way to place captions under each pic. Am I missing something?

Windows 7: Windows Live Photo Gallery
My OS is Win 7 Pro 32 bit with SP1 and updates installed.

Windows Live Photo Gallery (the latest version) is crashing with Error Code 0x80070002. I had this problem before and managed to solve it by uninstalling Windows Live Essentials and reinstalling (just WLPG and Windows Live Mail) using the offline installer.

Problems viewing Slide Show
A friend sent me an email that contained a Slide Show.When I tried to view it an error message appeared that said: Windows Live = An unknown problem has occurred. There was a problem launching the program.

Yet when I went to my IE homepage (ABC News), and viewed a slide show it worked. I was able to go back & forth between pictures.

Is this a problem with my e-mail client, Windows Live Mail 2011, with the sender or with Windows?

This is the page where I successfully viewed the slideshow.

I recently decided on certain Windows Live Essential programs that I wanted to install on my HP computer. There were only 3 programs that could be unchecked (deselected) since I did not want them: Windows Live Mesh, Messenger Companion, and Family Safety.

There was no option to deselect Messenger, Photo Gallery/Movie Maker, Bing Bar, Mail, and Writer. I only wanted Gallery/Movie Maker and Mail programs.

Is there any way to delete messenger, bing bar and writer programs from my computer?
