    I put this on the software forum, but on second thought, this may be a better place.

    I installed McAfee Security System 7 upgrade and now Outlook Express cannot send or receive. I get a timeout error message every time, and it continually attempts to send/receive. I disabled internet and email protection and the problem still persists. I use Dell Dimension 2350, Pentium 4, Windows XP Home 5.1.26, Outlook Express over DSL. I have two questions:

    1. Can this be fixed, and how?

    2. If it can't be fixed (I'm pretty fed up by now!) what is the best security program to replace McAfee?
