    After launching xpress 6.00.2800.1123 everything looks to be working just fine until I click create mail. The system just hangs for about 4-5 minutes. If I control/Alt/delete nothing happens until the systems unfreezes and I get the task mgr and the new email window pops up.
    I am running XP with Mcafee firewall and virus scan.
    I seem to have got this problem from nowhere, I upgraded from ME to XP last Nov with no problems, system is much more stable than ME.
    IExployer was freezing up when I clicked any site. I defragged and that seemed to work. Guy at work says it may be a bad ram chip but the system does come back after a while.
    I do upgrade the XP operating system when the patches seem to apply to me.
    Any thoughts?

    First, disable McAfee and then try the new mail thing. If that clears it up, you'll have identified the culprit. Fixing it will be a matter of poking around in the McAfee program to adjust its configuration (I dont' use McAfee so I can't help with the specifics).

    If you haven't already, download, install and run Spybot and/or AdAware (I use them both.) Let them clean up any spyware they find. Getting rid of spyware solves a lot of seemingly unrelated problems.
