windows 8 'mail' and 'people' apps not working

May 17, 2013 at 16:27:03
Specs: Windows 8
I'm running Windows 8, original install on a dual core pc. For a time mail (linked to a gmail account) and 'people' (linked to facebook and LinkedIn) worked fine. Now, for no apparent reason, when either of these are selected they briefly show their splashcreens then... nothing. Blue screen. Not the 'blue screen of death' exactly - this one can be minimised / closed - but no functionality. No idea where to start. Any suggestions welcome.

Hi swalsh,

I would suggest you to disable or uninstall the antivirus and then try opening the Mail and People App.

Also, you may try restoring your system to the date it was working properly. You may refer to the link mentioned below to perform restore:

NOTE: Restore may remove the applications installed after the restore point but will not affect any file.

Thanks & Regards
