    After updating my anti-malware program and re-booting, the text in OE messages no longer appears. Evidently, though, it is a condition others experience without the update, so, whether they're connected is questionable. Nevertheless, I've tried the suggestions, .dll repair noted here in a now closed thread, re-boot, turning off, re-booting, then on, the restore point control suggested elsewhere, but, to no avail. The message header appears, but, again, no text. OE is set to rich text, HTML, plain text doesn't work, either. Any suggestions for a fix will be welcome. Thank you.

    Just as an experiment try disabling the email scanner in your antivirus program.

    Thank you for the suggestion, but it changed nothing. Interestingly, when OE has been closed for a time, then re-opened, text of the most recent message appears. However, if I attempt to open any earlier ones, not only is the text still missing from them, but the text of that most recent one, when re-opened, is gone, too. HELP!
