  • How to disable Windows Mail

    I recently purchased PC-Cillin online and downloaded it. When I try to run the file in order to complete the installation I get a message that says "You cannot install or remove the program with Windows Mail running. Close Windows Mail and then click Retry to continue." I have Windows Vista Basic and the program I purchased is PC-Cillin Internet Security 2008. (32 bit). Can someone please talk me through how to complete the installation. Thank you!

    during the install, turn off email scanning...

    you may have to choose the advanced setup to see the option, but im not sure. i use pc-cillin at home, but i have officescan at work, so i cant check right now.

    or check and see if there is a service called "windows mail" and disable it for the install..

    im not very familiar with all the vista services yet, sorry.
