Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

It's Patao again. I tried to remove Outlook Express 6 last night. I thought I had bookmarked a place to get a new one... NOT. So I tried to get Outlook Express 7. Microsoft now charges for Outlook Express 7, which I can't afford. I surfed for 3 hours, trying to find a place to get a free download for Outlook Express 6. Each and every place I went to, either didn't have it or tried to sell OE 7, or said they had a fix for 6, but it actually was their program to scan your computer, then tell you they can't fix the problems, unless you upgrade and pay for it...arghhh Time for System Restore, POOOF your gone. Each time I tried to remove my Outlook Express 6, and knew it was in the Trash, it just reappeared. It has a life of it's own. Please tell me how to remove this program. A friend sent me a the .exe file for a newer verson of OE 6. How in the name of God, can I put the newer vision of OE6 on my pc, if I can't remove the old onea? Can I possibly just run the .exe and it will upgrade the OE6 I have. I just don't want all the problems on OE now, to stay with the upgrade. I need your assistance. God Bless You, Patao

    Oh thank you so much. Finally something easy for this old woman. I'm still so tired after houors of searching, and what a relief you have given me. My friend sent me her .exe files through MSN transfer at 1:00am, as neither of us could sleep. Now you have come to my rescue too.
    God Bless You,
    Patao

Hello,I ahave tried to download power point free


You probably have to uninstall the application entirely. This includes registry settings. Most often the provider will offer a "clean-up" tool to remove the application. This tool removes all traces of the app.

Please follow the simple steps to retrieve it.

Create folder of same name with which your dbx file is, e.g. personal.dbx create new folder name it personal.

Shut your out look express.

Copy the dbx file, go to the folder which contains DBX files of your outlook express, since you have created same folder in your new outlook express, you will see named dbx file, just over write the file which you newly created with your old file.

Start your outlook express again and you will be able to see all your email in the folder.

All the best

Print out problem in outlook express 6


Try Re-Installing Internet Explorer in Add or Remove Programs, i.e if you have IE7 or IE8 then you Remove it from list, re-boot and re-install IE7 or IE8 BUT if you are using IE6 then you can either Update it to IE7 or IE8.

Alernatively while in Add or Remove Programs you'll see 4 options in the Left hand side pane, choose Add/Remove Windows Components and then Uncheck Internet Explore and Outlook Express, then click Next etc, re-boot and again do the same except this time Check OE and IE.

WARNING make sure you have saved/backed up your emails b4 going on with this last method.

Best bet is to Un-Install/Remove or Update IE6? if not already done so, this is all I can suggest and if those options don't fix it then run a Anti-Malware program it picks up stuff the Anti-Virus programs can't.

Good Luck.

OUTLOOK EXPRESS BACKUP FILE


BAK and BK files usually are backups of other documents or files.

The BAK (or BK) file extension normally represents files that are backup copies of other file. There is no 'standard' file format for BAK files. BAK files can represent virtually anything.

This link will take you to an on-line storage of software I have. Download and run easyrecovery pro. Select E-Mail repair. Select Outlook express.
