    :confused: All of a sudden in the last week or so, I can't attach "My Pictures" in Outlook Express. I get the resizing box and the email ready for me to enter a "send to" address, but there is no picture in the "attach" line. Can anyone help me?

    If the attachments don't work, try Insert - picture on the face of the email.
    Just click the face of the email first.
    Would you loose your emails if you created a new or 2nd account? I have AOL Email
    and Outlook Express. I don't have to worry about loosing email from O. E.

    HAYCG - I have tried to insert the picture into the face of the email...that works but the pictures are HUGE! And I don't know how to resize them. I've tried using my photo editing software, but that doesn't work either. Anyone?

    Welcome to TSG....

    To download HJTsetup.exe fromTrendSecure To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
    Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe

    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.

    Listen to ozrom1e

    As for the picture being to large - left click the Picture and holding down on the left click
    drag the corner towards the opposite corner to make it smaller. This may also change the true shape. AOL allows me
    to resize my email face pictures by a percent value.
