    This isn't a fix to your freeze problem but a way to get out of Outlook Express without shutting down your computer. Press and hold down the following keys in this order Ctrl Alt Delete. This will launch the Task Manager. Use your mouse to select the frozen program from the list and click the End Task button. Be careful not to end the task of other programs in the list because many are vital to the normal operation of Windows. Ending the Task of a program basically closes down the program when it is frozen. Then you can still use your computer without shutting it down.
