    Hello there

    Hope someone out there can help with a little problem I have.

    I have a fujitsu siemens pc and I am running Windows XP Home.

    Recently, whenever I try to connect to my default mail ( Outlook Express) via a link on a web page to enter a competition or reply to a news item etc., the page freezes then part of a box appears telling me that ''the default mail is not..'' then it freezes for a short time, the pc gets really noisy and then multiple pages ( but with just the outline of the page with the heading 'flashing' and the rest of the page is blank) appear stacked behind each other.

    Sometimes I can simply cancel the pages individually but this last time the screen was just mostly white with small sections of the page returning very slowly.

    I did change my other mail ( hotmail) to Windows Live a week or two ago but reverted back to the standard shortly afterwards.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Have you verified that Outlook Express is your windows default program when using Internet Explorer. If not, go to the control panel and open Internet options. On the Programs tab, verify that OE is set for the email program.

    Hope this helps solve you issue.
