    The attachment is not blocked, I just can not open it by clicking on it. If I save the attachment to a temp file and then go to that saved file attachment, it opens just fine, so the attachment is coming through. I want, and used to be able to do, just click on the attachment in the e-mails I recieve and have them open instade of getting the current error message coming up "This application has failed to start because UXCore.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." Then I click OK and I get "Error loading C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Photo Gallery\WLX PhotoViewer.dll The specified module could not be found."

    Try to open Outlook in Start > Run > Outlook /safe

    I did and it does not change anything ie the attachment gets the same error message.

    I do not have windows desktop search.

    Realize the attachment saved by me can then be opened by me. It is just how can I get UXCore.dll to be found so that the attachment can be opened right at the e-mail without me saving it?

    Thanks for trying to help.

    Your uninstalling instructions worked fine but the problem is still the same,not fixed, when I try to open an attached incoming e-mail file. Thanks for trying to help. What else can I try?


  • murpeg Apr 17, 2009

    I tried regsvr32 UXCore.dll and got this message "LoadLibrary (UXCore.dll ) failed - The specified module could not be found."

    What about if I delete, using Add or Remove,

    Windows Live essentials

    " " Favorities for Windows Live Toolbar

    " " Sign-in Assistant

    " " Sync

    " " Upload Tool

    as I do not use Windows Live, anyways. Would this maybe cure the problem?

To provide enhanced security, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 is designed to prevent you from unblocking attachments.
Because Outlook is so widely used, it has been the target of several virus attacks in the past that have affected millions of people. Microsoft has acted to protect people from files, such as .exe and .bat files, that are often used to run malicious scripts when opened. Unfortunately this makes file sharing less convenient for many people, but security must take precedence.
Microsoft Office 2003 file types most commonly shared between people, such as .doc, .xls, and .ppt files, are not blocked.
If you need to share files that have file types blocked by this feature, you have several options, including the following:

  • Rename the files to include a temporary file type that is not on the list of blocked file types. For example, you might rename MyFile.exe to MyFile.exe_EXTRA, and then attach the file to the e-mail message. You can include instructions in the message to save the file with the correct name, for example, MyFile.exe, when the recipients save the file to their computers.
  • Use a program, such as WinZip, to package files before you attach them to your e-mail message. In your message, you can include instructions explaining how to extract the files from the package to make it easy for recipients to access the files.
  • Post the files to a secure network share. In your message, you can include a link to the share that you have given the recipients access to.
If your organization uses Microsoft Exchange Server, your e-mail administrator can control which file types are blocked. For more information, contact your administrator. If you are the e-mail administrator, you can learn more about configuring blocked attachment behavior in Outlook by referencing the Microsoft Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit in the online Deployment Center.

I have an EMail with 16 photos attached - it will not "go" nor can I delete it. How can I get rid of it?

Disconnect the network-cable from your computer, to block Internet access.

Start Outlook Express.
Instead of selecting the "Inbox" mail-folder,
select the "Outbox" folder.
Click once to select the E-mail message.
Use your mouse to "drag-and-drop" the message to your "Inbox" folder.
Close Outlook Express.
Reconnect the network-cable.
Open Outlook Express.
Check your "Inbox" for that "undeliverable" message.
Open the message, or delete the message.

Outlook express

dear fando,

This is usually down to a corrupt or over-full email inbox. Outlook Express is not very good at holding large amounts of emails especially if they have large attachments. I had a user this morning with a 2.5 GB inbox.

Backup/rename Inbox (C:\Documents and Settings\(User)\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GIU}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\inbox.dbx -> inboxbak.dbx).
Close Outlook Express.
Open Outlook Express.
Outlook Express will have created a whole new Inbox.
Your email should now work.

Best wishes.
