    Outlook Express Problems

    I've been using Outlook Express recently and every time I try to open it nothing happens. The cursor turns to a hour glass for a bit and then it turns back to the arrow. Nothing else happens. No error message, no this file can't be found, ect.
    This started occuring after I had cleaned some junk off of my computer. I deleted some of the links and other junk that HP puts on the puter before you buy it. I think I must have inadvertently deleted something Express needs but I don't know what. I tried all of the shortcuts to open Express and all are affected. I found the application file for Express so I know I didn't delete it.

    Does anybody have any idea what the problem is and how to fix it?
    Thanks, Kristi

    Missing files is a reasonable guess. You might try removing and reinstalling OE.

    I would start to use the full outlook and not use outlook express(if you have it) one reason is that I don't think you can backup outlook express.

    Or if you're feeling adventerous, download Thunderbird, which should find and import all your Outlook email, and is blissfully untangled from the rest of the operating system.

    Thanks for the responses everyone!

    Zero - I have Thunderbird but I started using OE to check my hotmail b/c Thunderbird couldn't access my hotmail anymore. How would I get Thunderbird to import the emails I have on OE?

    Capn - Since I already have IE and parts of OE on my computer do I need to uninstall them before I install them from the microsoft website.
