Question about Computers & Internet

Most desktop icons disappeared, Outlook Express can't open msgs.

Most of the desktop icons but not all disappeared. Outlook Express tries to open most but not all of the unread messages saying Can't Send Receipt. None of the messages requested a receipt. After ''playing'' with the problem I find that the icons somehow became ''hidden files.'' When I tell my PC to display hidden files I can see all of them on the desktop in their hazy condition. All of this happened simultaneously, the hidden files and the Outlook Express problem. I opened a new email account under the same Outlook Express with the same setup conditions and it works fine. Switch to the old one and it fails.

    Problem is with the inbox. Moved everything out of it and they can be opened without receipt notification. Had to unhide all of my files. Inbox still corrupted so started a new email file. It works fine. Thanks for all the suggestions. Ran a bunch of antivirus/trojan programs that found nothing.

Hello,

system infected by virus so you need to scan it using potent antivirus,
Yo can download free AVG antivirus at free avg website(you can search it in google) download and install. however the infection is severe then you need to remove your hard drive and then attach it to other computer and then scan that drive until all virus is deleted. if this not resolve the issue then you have to back up your files and then format and reinstall the operating system.

If you're using Windows XP you can try this:

Go to control panel, open Add/Remove programs, on the left side click on Add/Remove windows components, put a check mark on outlook express and then click next. It will activate Outlook Express again on your Windows XP.

How to download outlook express to send mails


You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.

Thanks to your help, I just set up a new identity in Outlook Express. Can you tell me how I can put the icon for "E-Mail" on my desktop to quickly get to my e-mails for that new Identity? Thank You. ...


Hello Sir,

You can directly access your E-MAIL once you have Setup in your Outlook. So creat a shortcut for your Outlook Express in your Desktop by rightclicking the Outlook icon.


THANK YOU

Click on your Windows 'Start' button. Find the Outlook Express icon on the programs list and right click it. Another menu will open. Click on 'Send To' in that menu, then 'Desktop (Create Shortcut)' - this will create the shortcut on your desktop.

Hi, outlook express 6: when open is white blank screen with only toolbar at top a grey bar and an orange search bar ?? when open it recieves msgs but i cant see any thing. Help would be much apreciated.


I would suggest an Outlook Express Reinstall after you back up your address book and message list. If nothing is of importance just resinstall it because backing up can be problematic with OE being partially functional.

Reinstall OE6
 You need your windows CD and you must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to perform this procedure.
  1. Click Start , click Run , and then type the following command:
%systemroot%inf
ie - "c:windowsinf" - no quotes
  1. Click OK to open the INF folder.
  2. Locate the file MSOE50.inf .
Right-click the file, and then click Install . This will reinstall the files that Outlook Express needs to proceed normally.
It will ask you to put your windows XP cd in the drive
