Preferred Solution: Installed SP2- Outook Express won't open

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Outook Express

if you go to tool/options in outlook, click on the tab "other" there you will find a tick box which allows you to enable or disable the "empty deleted items" message.if you want to set the send/receive to automatic then in the same options page click on the tab "mail setup". once again there is a check box which allows this action to take place when outlook is opened.harpur

I am building up a new computer and I want to be able to transfer my Favorites, my Address Book entires, and a number of EMails that I have in my current computer to my new computer.

I am using IE 6.0 and OE 6.0.

I know I can save my emails on a Zip Disc or a CD as .eml files and view them that way but I want to actually transfer them from my current computer to my new computer.

Can someone let me know what I need to to in order to transfer my Favorites, my Address Book entires, and my EMails? I need pretty complete guidance such as where to find the items on my current computer and where to put the items once I get them onto my new computer.

Thanks a bunch for the assistance.

Answer:Need Internet Explorer & Outook Express Help.

go to "Documents and Settings" directory then into your User Directory and you will see the Favorites directory and then just copy your old favorites into this directory.

I've been having problems with Outlook Express crashing and/or having problems that keep giving me an error message about the log file being too big or something. I keep my sent file folder and deleted file folder relatively empty. My inbox has less than 20 items in it, none of them huge. Can anyone tell me how and where I can fix this? If there is no fix, if I download a new copy of Outlook Express over the old one, will my address book reamin in tact? Thanks for your help.


Answer:Outook Express - log file problem

Try some maintenance first and see if this helps to clear it up.
Close all programs except Outlook Express, including any antivirus programs you may have running.

First in OE, Tools>Options>Maintenance, uncheck the option for: Compact messages in the background and leave it unchecked from now on.

File>Folder>Compact all Folders. Leave the computer alone until it has completed compacting.

Let us know if this resolves the problem or not.

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with an Outlook 2007 issue a user has been having. Last week, our exchange server was flooded by a lot of e-mails, causing our users messages they tried to send out to fail and given a Outlook delivery delayed message for each. The issue was solved but I have one user who still has a delivery delayed mail in this inbox and upon trying to open it, Outlook crashes and if you try to deleted it, you get the message:

"One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items, and they try this operation again."

I was thinking this notification was in sync with the e-mail that was delayed, so I did a search and couldn't not find anything related to it. Any ideas on who to get rid of this troublesome message?

A virus or something hit my Compaq computer. I have Windows XP and Norton Anti-virus. Norton was in the process of blocking the virus when the system froze up completey and a re-boot was the only option. Some of the XP start up files were corrupted or deleted or something, so that Windows XP will no longer start properly. The welcome screen comes up fine, but the desktop is now just a completely blank blue screen, no error messages, no icons, no start menu, task bar....nothing.

Answer:Help using Outook 2010

If it is only that one Email, I would guess Outlook classes it as a security risk/virus/trogan and will not allow it.You could check the security settings (may be set too high)or if it is an attachment, you may have to save it first, before trying to open it.Terry

Just doing a back up and notice that the files do not have any association linked... I am sure it used to show the Outlook icon but can't be sure... can anyone confirm this.. I did try to link to Outlook but is failed...

This is what I mean...

This is what I get when I try to associate it to Outlook... Which seems odd... unless it is because Outlook is open?

Hello and Welcome to TSF

I cannot answer your first question, there is not enough information to go off of. You need to post a complete error message and when you recieve this error.

As for question 2, yes you can solder those connections back on to the motherboard but sometimes they dont hold as they stated. You may just have had a unexperienced person do the soldering, hard to tell.

I created a database in Access 2007. I am a relative newbe at this. One of the functions that I am using is a macro that Microsoft supplied as part of a Contacts table/form template to add Contacts from Outlook to the Contacts table in the the database. It was working just fine until I split the database, putting the tables on a server and the front end on my local PC. After splitting, it will no longer work. I have spent hours searching the Web and found 100's for people asking the same question, but no solution. Front and back end files are all in Trusted locations. Went back to a copy of the pre-split database (which still worked) and copy the object to the new split database. Would not work in the new database. .

I am operating on Windows 7 OS and am having difficulty with Outlook for Office 2010. It always asks for a password each time I sign on and when I open an email. For some reason it doesn't store my password.

Answer:Outook 2010 always requires password

That problem is by no means unique to Outlook 2010, it happens also on Outlook 2007 and on the version before that, and neither is it unique to Windows 7.

Try putting your POP3 server name and password into the "Credential Manager" in Control Panel. For good measure I entered my email credentials twice -- in "Windows Credentials" and in "Generic Credentials". I hardly see that pesky password prompt since doing that.

I know there have been some posts going back over a year, but none of them fully solve this issue. For years, the best way to sync Outlook 2010(without corporate exchange server) to the windows phone has been to use the Google Calendar connector to get to their cloud and then onto the Windows phone. This had the advantage of doing two-way synchronization and working with the default calendar in Outlook (the existing .PST file).
Google fully discontinued this service on August 1. Microsoft does not have as simple a solution. The two options I've seen for cloud syncing are to use the Microsoft Hotmail Connector and to use Google App Sync. The Hotmail Connector does not work with the default Outlook profile which means than when an invitation is received from any email account other than hotmail/ it saves to the default calendar, and you then have to copy it to the hotmail calendar in order to sync. The Google App Sync requires a whole different profile with a migration which is an equally big headache or possibly greater. So, neither of these options work without making a lot of manual intervention.
I've been using a local sync program called CompanionLink to sync contacts, notes and tasks. It can sync the calendar but has a couple of disadvantages. 1) you need to manually sync calendar which is not good if constantly on the go and always want to have your appointments. 2) CompanionLink does not feed appointments into the native calendar so it won't appear on the loc...

Answer:How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Frankly the best solution is to sign up for MS Office 365. The cheapest plan (Exchange Online) is $4 per month per user, so for $48/year, you'll get seamless sync of contacts, calendar, tasks, and if you choose, email and more, across Outlook and Windows Phone.
Not free, but works much better than Google's App Sync, the Hotmail Connector, and any of the local sync solutions, and it'll work great with any other devices you add in to sync with (since everything supports EAS).

Answer:about PCI Express 2.1 if installed on PCIe 1.1 mobo

From the wiki.

PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v 2.0 will be able to work with the other being v 1.1 or v 1.0.

So yeah, it will support it, though it will probably be a bottleneck as 1.1 is only half as fast as 2.0.

I recently did a full re-install for windows 98. Outlook express has an error saying that it was installed incorrectly. Do I have to reinstall internet explorer or is there a way that I can repair outlook express? Or would I be better off installing a program like eudora instaed?
Thank you for your assistance

Answer:outlook express was installed incorrectly
Download, install newest version of Internet Explorer ( 6.0 )

system info:

compaq presario sr1630nx desktop pc

580 watt PSU

ASUS motherboard with AMD Athlon 64 CPU

mother board has 4 PCI expansion slots and 1 PCI-E slot, no AGP

Motherboards integrated video: ATI Radeon Express 200


have tried two different GPUs with same result

no video signal to monitor after installing new GPU.

first card i tried was a MSI R5450hd 1g, second one was XFX Radeon HD5450

I went into control panel / add remove programs and removed the ati radeon express 200 driver then shut down windows, removed all cables, opened case, grounded myself, installed card into PCI-E slot, replaced cables and started pc, all fans come on full tilt but neither of the VGA ports send signal.

removed card from PCI-E and pc starts fine, monitor works.

went into BIOS and changed video option from integrated to PCI-E, reinstalled card with same results,

what the hell am i doing wrong?, I've done everything i can think of even tried installing drivers before inserting card and keep getting nothing.

should i give up on the PCI-E and use a standard PCI GPU?


Answer:PC won't post with PCI Express video card installed

I believe that system is roughly 4-5 years old, and as such probability is PCI-E slot may not be upto the task with regard to compatibility/power etc. I hope someone with more knowledge would either back it up or correct me if i am wrong. Regards

Here is specs sheet for your system, but I am unable to say its 1.0 or 2.x slot (although I guess its 1.0x).

The system concerned is a ThinkCentre M52 (8113-D6G) plus a PCI-Express (x1) DVB tuner card Pinnacle PCTV 7010ix. Problem: System doesn't boot, hangs on initial screen, you can't even get into BIOS settings when this tuner card is inserted into the x1 slot. This condition is independent of the x16 slot being occupied by the graphics card or not. However, the tuner card is fine if installed in the x16 slot (graphics card removed, of course). The tuner card itself seems OK and works nicely in a x1 slot of a different system (AMD-based A60). So why can't I get it working in the x1 slot of the M52 System?

Hi all. Irritating & timewasting beyond belief - even for Microsoft - is a hidden shortcut in either Outlook 2007, Office 2007 or perhaps in Windows 7. Centred apparently on the "T" key, a combination of keystrokes reduces the display size of text I type. At enormous waste of time, each occurrence can be remedied, via the View tab in Outlook 2007, then the "zoom" facility. But how do I a) locate the set up instructions for this shortcut, and b) alter or reload them?

I'm a reasonably sensitive typist: this glitch is wasting sooo much of my time. Am in the dire straights of using new Windows 7, with new Office 2007 apps, on a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1545.

Advice on shortcut set-up in Outlook 2007, and or in Windows 7 will be much appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Outook 2007 or Windows 7 keyboard shortcut, reducing size of display text.

Is it a laptop you are using.....if so are you sure its not the zoom function on the touch pad

I have VS 2012 Professional installed and running. I tried to install VS Express 2013 for Windows. The installer runs and claims success but the program apparently is not there. Ran installer again and chose repair. It says successful. (Both times the message is "Restart" whereas Professional installer gave option to Run.)

VS 2012 Pro is in Program Files (x86) as Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0 and the program is deven.exe.
There is a folder Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0 with similar structure but where I expect deven.exe there is no such file.

One thread said Express will run with VS 2010. tutorials say these can exist side by side.

Anyone running both of these??

I run Windows 7 Ultimate on a 64-bit machine.

Answer:Visual Studio Express won't install if VS 2012 Professional installed

For me (with VS 2012 Professional) VS Express 2013 Express installed but I couldn't find it. Not in Start Menu and was not named deven.exe as stated in other posts.

For me, it is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7 as WDExpress.exe.

No comment on why and no comment on VS 2012 being in Visual Studio 11 folder and VS Express 2013 being in Visual Studio 12 folder. Can't complain about free stuff.

OS is Windows 98.
Internet Explorer 6 (I think)

Background -
Previously had Internet Security installed until it expired in March 2005; the 2003 version I think.
Did not have problems with the order in which Outlook Express (OE) could be loaded.
However, computer would lock-up after several hours left idle - sometimes in one day, mostly after several days.

Now -
Purchased/dowloaded/Installed Internet Security 2005.
Noticed "system could not load ... out of resources" type error occured
a few times when starting applications - probably Outlook Express.

Currently, each time I start Outlook Express after Internet Explorer is already loaded the computer stops responding and needs rebooting. If I start Outlook Express before Internet Explorer, then it seems ok. Notices that as much as 87% of the 256Meg of memory was utilized, so I added another 256Meg.
This did not solve the problem.
Even when OE does load, it does so slowly. It seems to render the display in phases where some panels will start, then others are added until
it is complete. Also, after OE initialy loads I get the following:
"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server error messages, network error messages, or a long period of inactivity. ..."

This was not an issue before.

Looking for a solution.

I'm unable to open IE7 after installing MS Service Pack 2. After uninstalling SP2, IE7 opens, but 1) many internet sites open slowly, 2) I'm unable to access youtube videos, 3) certain sites tell me I don't have internet connectivity (although I'm accessing them through the internet), and 4) IE7 will repeatedly reboot while I'm viewing ceratin sites like Yahoo email, Ebay, etc. This has all led me to believe that I really need SP2 and/or an upgraded browser installed. I installed IE8 and Firefox, but they won't open. IE9 and Chrome won't install w/o SP2 installed first. For the last 3 years or so, I've had problems with certain MS cummulative security updates preventing IE7 form opening. After uninstalling the updates (per an MS help rep's phone recommendation), IE7 opens again. I tried disabling add-ons, in case one of those were the problem, but no luck.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated!!!

IE 9 shipped with the unit & it worked fine. I use Firefox so removed the friendly blue e ages ago
I do a small amount of B2G at the end of each financial quarter & the Aussie Tax people are not big on support for other than IE, so I'd run IE9 from the start menu Run - fine.
A few days ago, I tried to open IE the usual way & it came up with the enclosed screenshot, don't know why the 32-bit reference I am on 64.
I ran sfc /scannow from DOS as Admin, the CBS log told me that iexplore.exe and vbscript.dll were corrupt, as were their counterparts in the store directory. I don't believe that I received an installation disk from Acer, so no help there.. (CBS Log available)
Meanwhile, I had read that IE11 was now available for Windows 7 64-bit, so I thought I'd try to install it. I downloaded it, and tried install, but was blocked with a message that setup could not complete because there was a newer version of IE on the computer.
I got around this by uninstalling a couple of Windows Update KBs &c, that referred to IE 11 &c, got the installation completed yesterday, but guess what?

One of the pc's here, running WinXP Home, is not opening .pps files from Outlook Express. Powerpoint Viewer 2003 is installed, and if the file is saved to the Desktop, and the user double clicks on it there, it opens. But if they click on the attachment on the email in Outlook Express, it gives them the error about needing to create a file association in Folder Options.

In Folder Options, the pps filetype is listed, and is associated with Microsoft Office Powerpoint Viewer.

We have tried manually deleting it & recreating it, uninstalling and reinstalling the viewer, but OE still won't open it. It is *not* set to prevent attachments from opening. And it is only the pps attachments we have the trouble with - no problem with .jpg, .txt, .zip, .wmv, etc.

Any thoughts? A registry setting perhaps?

I was stumbling on firefox when all of a sudden my computer shut down. Upon reboot it would not allow me to run any .exe programs. It won't let me run them even if I click on them right at start up. I can open folders and start task manager, but other than that I can't do anything. Reboots take forever and don't work sometimes.

IE 10 does not open to the web after several window's updates have been installed on win 8 cp on my desktop and my laptop. IE 10 worked ok before updates. So I removed the updates (about 10 in the beginning) but that did not change IE 10. It still would not bring up the web. There was no error message. The web page was "in motion and looking like it was trying to open" but would not open.(best I can explain it). Now firefox 11 works and works perfectly but I can't use my favorites with firefox and I cannot make firefox my true default browser. So how do I solve this problem?

Consumer Preview is still a long way from the final release. Users of Windows8 and IE10 are merely helping the development. Give MS a chance. The product is yet to be either a personal or business solution and shouldn't be used as such.

Answer:why can't open some programs when I installed windows 10?

Hello, do you mean:

a. Before you upgraded to Win 10 (from Win 7?), the computer was running some other Windows version (Win 7?) and programs worked ok, but now not after upgrading to Win 10?

b. You bought a new computer with no OS installed, installed Win 10, and programs you have installed since then don't run?

c. Less likely from your text but possible: You bought a new PC with Win 10 build 10586 and upgraded to the anniversary edition, and having done so, some programs no longer work?

Please could you state the sequence of what's happened, and some example programs you're having trouble with, else I'm afraid no one can answer your question.

Please also complete your system spec in your profile, which mentions Win 7 at present.

When you install AVG did you do a restart afterwords. Also, you will want to make sure that FF has stopped it process in the task manager. As that can cause a problem, that I have seen lately.

Recently I upgraded to Windows XP Pro from Windows XP Home Edition. Since the upgrade I have been unable to open/access my labeling software. It is Printshop Deluxe Version 20.
I did uninstall from control panel.
I did reinstall from control panel.
Lastly I tried to repair by clicking on the "repair button" from the installation disc.

This is what happens when I try to open the program.
I double-click PrintShop Deluxe from my desktop. The hourglass pops up, and I think that it is opening because it shows me a page w/the title of the software. Next it states "The Printshop 20.0 has encountered a problem and it needs to close"...Tell Microsoft about this problem.

And once I click tell/don't tell, it just closes.

I know that the program is installed, because when I open add/remove programs from the control panel, it states that Printshop 20 has 731.00 MB.

Can someone please assist me in how I go about opening this program?

I use this for business, and I need this working right away.

Thanks, in advance, for your replies.

Answer:Newly installed Thunderbird does not open

How bizarre...Try uninstalling and installing the previous version 31.1.0 from that works then try upgrading to the latest version from within thunderbird.

Answer:Can't open Outlook express 6

While allowing that a few Luddites are still using OE6, it leaves you very exposed to infections, many of us are ready to shortly move onto OE8.Maybe time to install OE7.

Answer:Outlook Express will not open....

Hi bsennert and welcome to TSG.

It's probably one or more corrupt DBX files in the Message Store Folder.
GO HERE and follow the instructions for "If Outlook Express will not start".
To download the "small script" as a vbs file, right click it and select "Save Link as".
If Windows or your security software really complain about downloading it, left click the link and copy all the text on the page, then paste it into Notepad and File>Save as and name it oestore.vbs and save it to the desktop.
