After our big day here today ,I was deleteing a slew of E-Mail notifications , then I went to deleted files to clear them for good, when I came back to my inbox O/E froze ( 6.0) So I rebooted thinking all would be well :rolleyes: Now it won't work at all, the blue splash screen comes up, and it goes to the main program, but then it hangs, and after a bit I get the not responding message in ctrl/alt/ delete. I have run scanreg /restore, ran my Virus program and ran scandisc, still no joy, any Ideas ??...Rhett
also, if I start it off the net, it won't start my dial-up before it hangs, also when on the net I seem to see activity in the connection windows, but nothing loads ??

rhett has anyone tried to send you a very large file thru e-mail.... its sounds like one is hanging up.... call your isp and have them remove it... they can.

Darndest thing ! I went back to scandisc and ran a thorough scan, 1/2 half way through it, the pc rebooted( usually not good )
It came back up normally, so I disabled my virus scan and shut down my network engine (winroute) Then I started O/E and it dialed up and connected as if there was never a problem !! I started my antivirus back up, then the Network engine, and everything works Great, :confused: never will figure this one out, but it's ok, I wasn't meant to !
Anyway, I will run Defrag tonight and hopefully all will still be ok in the morning, I better get to bed, typing to myself now !!...Rhett
