1 Answer do I get out of it??? I want my old hotmail back

For those who find Microsoft Outlook to be unnecessary, getting rid of the program can feel like it's harder than it really is. There are three methods that this process will go over. This process also shows how to uninstall Outlook without uninstalling other programs you may have installed with Microsoft Office. Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the control panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. Scroll down the list of programs until you see the listing for Microsoft Office, and click once on it. (It may say "Professional Edition 2003" or whichever version you have installed.) Then click the button "Change." Next you will see a window pop-up for Microsoft Office Setup. Select the dot on "Add or Remove Features." Uncheck the box for Microsoft Outlook and click on "Update." The setup will then begin to process the removal from the system. b> Removing Outlook Through Windows Components Wizard b> Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the Control Panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. When the window pops up, click on the "Add/Remove Windows Components" icon at the right side of the window. The Windows Component Wizard will appear. Scroll down the list of components up to Outlook Express. Uncheck the box next to the icon and click "Next." Click "Finish" once the process has completed. b> How to Remove Hidden Outlook Files b> To perform this process, you must allow Windows to show hidden files and folders. To do this, open any folder and click on the "Tools" button. Under the View tab in Folder Options, scroll down the Advanced list until you see "Hidden Files and Folders." Place the dot on "Show Hidden Files and Folders." (If you want to undo this later, follow this same step and place the dot back on "Do not show hidden files and folders.")= Once you can see the hidden files, open another folder and type "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft" into the Address bar, and press "Enter." This will open the folder where the hidden Outlook files are located.(%username% is the name of the administrator or user on your computer. For example, if your name is John Doe, you would type "C:\Documents and Settings\John Doe\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft.") Click on the Outlook folder and delete it. Check the Office folder as well because there might be Outlook files in there as well. If there are any, delete them.
Disconnect Hotmail From Outlook b> Many people use Microsoft Outlook to manage their email accounts. Even email accounts that have Web interfaces, such as Microsoft's Hotmail, are able to utilize Outlook's more robust feature set. When you stop using an account, however, you might want to remove it from your Outlook accounts. You can remove your old Hotmail account from Outlook's "Account Information" menu. Click the "File" tab and click "Account Settings" on the "Account Information" menu. Click to select your Hotmail account from the list and click "Remove." Click "Yes" to confirm that you want to remove the account. Hope this helps.

Every day, my computer says I have low disc space memory. All I've been doing is surfing the web and watching Youtube videos, for example. Do I have a worm? I now went out & bought Kaspersky Internet...

  • Hi, what you need to do is "Add" more Memory to the "Virtual Memory, the memory is used to "Cache" for file indexing, Paging of files... it handles for all running Processes, Networking, and Services. 1. Go to and open the Control Panel, select the Performance and Tools, category, next open the "Adjust Visual Effects." 2. In the "Performance Options, click on the Advanced button, there will be Virtual memory area, that show how much memory is "allocated" towards "paging file..." (RAM) on the Harddisk; click on the "Change button, in the window (view) the "Recommended amount, in (MB)." 3. If the Memory is less< than the recommended Total for paging, change it. Clear the # number in the Intial size box, type the recommended amount or > Higher, example: (Recommended = 4219) type ( 4219 or 4519 or higher), next click on the "Set button, click OK." You may need to restart the computer. "If the solution helped, rating it is appreciated, thanks"

My outlook 2007 has reached max size, I have deleted most archives, but nothing changes. This happened when I tried to download my hard drive

As archives are in a separate PST than your Mailbox (Inbox, Calendar, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Contacts etc), you may need to focus on this section to be reduced. Biggest culprit for used space is deleted Items. Empty this by right clicking and select Empty deleted items folder. Once empty, it is a good idea to archive messages in your Sent Items folder to another PST or Personal Folder. Once you have done these steps, right click your Mailbox Account (icon of House with a minus sign beside it - under All Mail items), and select Properties for "Your Mailbox Name" Click Advanced button, and click Compact now. This will compress your PST file, and remove any space once occupied by any moved or deleted messages. This process could take a while, and should not be interrupted.

Folder 'Virusdefs' takes 1,52Gb of C: disc space.

Virusdefs is where your antivirus has placed the virus definition files. Normally you would not move them.

The size however concerns me.

It may be that your antivirus had not deleted the older ones. In that case I would check inside the folder and maybe check the dates on the files.

1. If there are a lot that are quite old then CUT & PASTE them to another location.

2. Shut down and restart your computer and watch for any error messages from your antivirus. Take note of them if there are, esp. any file names.

3. If there was an error then fo find that file in the location you just moved them to and move that file (or files) back

4. Then shut down and restart again. If all is good then run your antivirus and make sure it all still works. If so then you are safe to delete the files you moved If not then go back to step 3.

I know it may look a little like a long way round but you do not want to compromise your antivirus !

Sending Multiple emails

I had this same problem and found this solution (that worked!):

If your "Sent" file folder is overfull (it can only hold about 2G), OE can't file the sent message so it retains it in the "Out" mailbox. To see the size of the files in your "Sent" folder, go to your Outlook Express "Store" folder (in OE click on "Tools/Maintenance/Store Folder" then copy the information that shows where this file is located; then go to "Start/Run" and paste this information into the "Run" window; this will take you to your "Store" folder). Right-click on the file folder titled "Sent Items.dbx." It will show you the file size.

If you have too much information stored in this file folder, go back to your OE view and either delete some files from your "Sent" file folder or move them to a new folder. However, you must then "Compact All Files" (Click on "File/Folder/Compact All") in order to actually clear the space in the folder.

This should do it!
