? Question Mark on Email Replies

How I fixed the ? inserted at the beginning of email replies. Recently, Windows Live Mail began inserting question marks at the beginning of every email I would reply to. As it turns out the beta version of Internet Explorer 9, installed a few days earlier was the culprit. Once Internet Explorer 9 beta was uninstalled, my email replies started working normally again.

Fixing the erroneous ? inserted at the beginning of email replies

Note: This process assumes you have Internet Explorer 9 Beta installed, and that it is potentially the culprit.

  1. Click Start > Control Panel.
  2. Click Uninstall a Program under Programs
  3. From the Tasks pane to the left, click View installed updates
  4. From the list, double click Windows Internet Explorer 9 and proceed to uninstall Removing Internet Explorer 9
  5. Once uninstalled, restart your computer

If all goes well, your Windows Live Mail email replies should now function normally.

There must be some problem with IE9 causing a conflict with Windows Live Mail.
