    Hi and welcome. You need to post back to your same thread to continue receiving assistance.

    I'll merge both threads.

    how much have you running on the PC.
    have a look at
    start
    run
    msconfig
    then lookk at startup tab
    and post the info -
    you may have loads of programs running and running out of resources.

    can you post your system specs
    how much memory do you have
    how much disk space
    how much free disk space
    what version of outlook express

    thats OK - i have replied to one of your other posts,
    try not to keep posting new threads just reply to your own thread.
    sometimes you may have to wait a while before someone answers - depends on the time - remember its a global forum - i'm in UK so will not reply during the night.
    it also depends on if someone on the forum feels they can add any reply to your question.

    so you may be replied to immediately and have a constant string of replies - other times it may take a while
    have a ookk at my reply and answer the questions i have put

    Maybe you gave too much information in your question.
