I have gotten this problem just recently. About 50% of the time that I try to load my Outlook Express, it shows the splash screen and freezes. I do not find the application running in the task manager, but I do find it in the processes. In order to get rid of it I have to kill the process. If I reboot It seems to fix itself, or maybe a couple reboots, I cannot remember. Either way, is there a way to remove OE and reinstall it or what else might I try?

The first (since it's the easiest) thing to try is to scan for and remove spyware. Several flavors of spyware have been known to royally mess up Outlook Express.

To get rid of spyware, download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or Ad-Aware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

If that doesn't fix things, it would be good to know your OS.

Ok, I ran them. I guess It will only tell after watching it over the next couple days to see if my OE acts up. Ill let you know. Thanks!
