PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE! WIN 7 EMAIL APPEARANCE REALLY SCREWED

by midela / February 2, 2013 9:25 AM PST

Hi Everyone!
I surely hope that someone out there, can help me!
I turned off my HPG71270 Laptop, for a while this morning, then fired it back up, and suddenly I received every junk email I'd ever received, in my junk email box, along with a whole pile of emails, that I'd (casually but not permanently) deleted, and had left in my deleted email box.
Not only that, my Win 7 Email task bar, & this is so annoying, is now over top of the top few emails, in my Boxes! So, I cannot do anything with the top few, because I can't SEE them!
I also noticed that , at the bottom, where my icons used to be, for mail, calendar, contacts, well they're gone, replaced with a vertical list of the words instead!
So, as you can see, I REALLY need some help here!
I called my ISP, but there is nobody in the "engineering" dept"., for the weekend.
?PLEASE, someone? Help me with this mess?
I swear I'll clear out all of those old emails, that I thought I'd done away with!

Hi!
I use Windows 7, Windows Live Mail. Although I don't know why my "browser" matters, I use Chrome.

My Windows Live Mail has nothing to do with Chrome. It is often closed, when I access my email.

When I turn on my Laptop, the first thing I do, is open my email, I don't turn on Chrome, until later.
All I did, was simply start up my Laptop, open my email, and boom! all this stuff appeared, in my junk box and my inbox, and my deleted box. As well, several of my older emails, from last year and earlier, back to 2011, are showing up duplicated, and mutiplicated.


I have not heard anything back, from my ISP.
Can you, or anybody, PLEASE HELP ME?
Thank You So Much!
