Dear Computer Lady,
I have read your column for years. Right now, I have 2 computer questions.
2. I do not understand Live Mail. It is something I have to register for? I have attempted to send email on Live Mail and it always asked for my password.
You do not have to erase your computer in order to get Java back. Just go to: www.java.com/en/ and click on the “Free Java Download button.
On the next screen, click on the “Agree and start free download” button. Follow the prompts to install Java and you should be all set.
As far as Windows Live Mail is concerned, you don’t have to register for it, but you do have to set up your email account correctly. If you can receive email, but not send it, contact your Email provider and ask them to help you with the outgoing mail settings. Once you have the correct settings, you should be able to both send and receive email messages in Windows Live Mail.
