Why aren't some of my contacts receiving my text messages?

Question: Why aren't some of my contacts receiving my text messages?

I just activated a DOOGEE DG300 through the Net10 BYOP program. People I could text prior to activating my new phone are not receiving my messages. Other contacts work fine as before. Has anyone heard of this. Net10 can't help me.

Preferred Solution: Why aren't some of my contacts receiving my text messages?

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.)

When my phone is switched on after having been off or in flight mode I do not get any messages for the incoming calls I had during that period.How can I remedy that?
Thanks in advance

Answer:Why aren't I receiving messages of incoming calls made when the phone was off or in flight mode?

Have you turned on MCN (Missed Call Notification) ? If no, then ask your network operator to turn it ON for you. It's not free in most countries so you better check monthly charges for those services.
PS: It doesn't have to do anything with the phone or OS, it's completely network based service.

Yesterday my cousin was infected with a MSN / WLM virus. Basically it sent a message out to all her contacts saying "OMG, is this you? :S (link to JPEG image file)".

Thinking nothing of it, I clicked on it and a DOS or PIF file or something was downloaded to my PC. I deleted it straight away, checked for any unwanted services and startup programmes, ran several virus scans with different software and all seemed to be well.

However, now, when I use Windows Live Messenger, very often I don't receive messages and invites from contacts and sometimes they don't from me. I've tried reinstalling Windows Live several times but to no avail. I really don't want to use any other IM clients, and I'd REALLY appreciate it if one of you great guys out there could help me fix this problem. Thanks.

PS: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

I have a Lumia Icon and vcards sent to me via text do not come through with all of the contact info that is sent. I've had several iphone users that I know try it and some info comes through but not all. Typically email addresses and street addresses don't come through. Why doesn't this work and will the WP 8.1 /Denim update fix it? I run a business and I need this functionality to work correctly. It's embarrassing to ask someone to email a contact because my phone can't recognize it. I love Windows Phone, but my business can't suffer because of it. Anyone else have this issue? I'm seriously thinking about returning my new Icon for a Droid Turbo or iPhone because of this.

Answer:Why am I receiving blank messages instead of text from only one contact?

We may need more details. Also, it is not necessary to post duplicates of the same question.
What app are you referring to? I deduce that you're not referring to SMS.
Have you tried check if that contact has a duplicate entry in the list of your contacts, if applicable?

Sorry it isn't a computer question but is driving me mad. A friend and I keep in regular contact by text when she is away from home. Last week she suddenly was unable to receive my text messages even if I "replied" to hers. If I call her she can receive the calls. I'm on Orange who suggested I reset my network, my friend is on Vodaphone and has done the same. I have a Motorola, my friend a Nokia.Has anyone any ideas? It's really annoying, I can send text to others and she can receive text from others, just not me.Thanks and once again apologies for it not being a computer question.

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 625 so slow receiving text messages?

Text lag and failure to receive are carrier issues...

My lumia 630 has stopped receiving text messages, I can send messages to other phones but cant receiving messages. Phone worked fine for about a month

Answer:Why has my phone stopped receiving text messages (Lumia 630)?

It may be an issue with your carrier or your SIM card.
If you can send SMS, there is no fail message and recipients can verify they did in fact get the text, then your phone is configured properly and it is not hardware/software related to your handset.
SMS text lag is a known issue and is usually carrier side. I would consult with them and ask for A) a re-provision or B) a new SIM
Provisioning is when your account accesses are granted carrier side. On CDMA it is one method, on GSM another... A Re-Provision is the resend of those authorizations to where they reside in the system. A do over. LOL. To get a reprovision done usually requires escalating up the ladder in tech support. Most customer service types will have no clue what you are talking about. Request a help ticket and get the escalation process started.

So this is my situation.
I am a Windows XP SP2 Windows Live Messenger user, and my girlfriend is a Mac user with w/e version of MSN Messenger. Basically I have a cell phone too, from which I can use MSN by text messaging or from The MSN Mobile website on my phone.
The thing is, her messages never show up. For example, if I use The Mobile site, I get her MSN name and then a blank, with no message. The Type button is gone too.
And she doesn't even receive the text messages I send to her MSN thing ... Like 222-023-187. Normally that would send it to one of my contacts if they used Windows, but she doesn't get it.
Is this a Mac-only problem?

Yesterday my phone died and I left it at home to charge while I went out. When I came back I noticed that all of its text messages and photos were gone, but just kind of shrugged it off. However, today when I opened up my contacts I noticed that the majority of them are gone. It's even weirder because while the majority of the contacts are gone there are still 15-20 left. On closer inspection of the numbers that are left, it seems like I have probably gotten all but one of them within the last 4 or 5 months, but I don't know why that would effect it at all. Is there a way that I can get back my last contacts, and less importantly pictures, and least importantly text messages?

I upgraded two days ago and would like to revert back. I want to keep my contacts and text messages.
Before upgrading, I downloaded the Microsoft SMS & Contact Backup. I backed content up to my SD card. I also had the backup functions checked on the device options.
After upgrading to Win 10, I no longer see the SMS & Contact Backup.
How should I proceed?

Answer:How do I restore my Lumia 1520 back to 8.1 from 10.0 without losing contacts and text messages?

Open the messaging app, tap ... and then tap settings. Make sure that message backup is turned on and also for messages to be synced across devices. If you can, I would wait a day for it to backup all of your messages. The messages one is a separate setting from regular device backup!
Your contacts are in the cloud, so they should all appear when you downgrade. To check this, log into your Microsoft account on a PC to make sure that all of your contacts are there.

I'm thinking about switching from my Lumia Icon to a Samsung Galaxy S6 since I'm getting tired of waiting for Microsoft to bring a new Windows Phone to Verizon. I will return to Windows eventually though if Microsoft ever releases a decent flagship Windows Phone on Verizon again. But until then I'm getting quite fed up and I'm losing my patience. I've waited over 2 years for a new phone and now it seems like it could be more years before there's even a possibility of a new flagship coming to Verizon. I'm locked in to Verizon because of a shared business account so I can't just switch carriers on a whim. If I do switch though, will I be able to transfer all my contacts and text messages over to the S6?

Answer:Can you transfer text messages and contacts from a Windows Phone to an Android phone?

Hi there,
WindowsCentral members would be more familiar with transferring SMS to a Windows Phone, rather than away from it.
Contacts definitely can be transferred. I'm not sure about SMS (Samsung Smart Switch is for transferring data from another Android device or an iPhone).
I'd suggest that you ask over at our sister site AndroidCentral. They would probably be better able to help. Ask a Question - Android Forums at

After I moved home from my dorm, I set up my PC in its new locations. I turned it on, and everything looked good, except that the computer wasn't recognizing that I had a sound card (thus, no sound from my speakers). I figured that a simple restart could fix the problem, and when I did that, none of my 3 monitors turned on with the computer. This was strange, since it was working perfectly fine before I moved, and had even come on a few minutes earlier. This is when I started to suspect a hardware issue. I opened up my PC and reseated my graphics card (GeForce GTX 670), and turned the computer back on. Viola, it works again, but still with no sound. I then proceed to reseat my sound card, and power the system up again. Once again, there is no signal to any of my monitors. I started to think that it could be a faulty video card, so I take out my GeForce and try booting with the on-board graphics card. Computer boots up, and I have signal to my monitor, as well as sound through my sound card. I try booting with a separate graphics card, to check the PCIE slot, and the computer boots up again, with sound. I put my GeForce back into the computer and boot once more, and I get signal to all of my monitors, but again with no sound. During this startup, I was able to do stuff on the computer for several hours, with no problems besides the sound issues. Of course, after I turned the computer off, the monitors don't receive input signal anymore. I've tried plugging the c... Read more

I've had no sound randomly on my 1520 lately. Started happening after getting the Denim firmware. A soft reset clears it up (hold down power and volume down buttons together for about 10 seconds until it vibrates).
If it keeps happening, I may do a hard reset myself to see if that fixes it.

And still, they are on another computer. I can't figure what the **** is this shit. I've search on google for a long time and I haven't found any similar problems as mine.

So, here's the situation : I do have two computers who had run WLM 2011 beta version. On of them, my laptop, wasn't able to connect at all, I wierd error code showed up. This error code was related to the internet explorer settings, wich I tried to change, but without any result.

Right now, the final version of WLM 2011 is installed, both seams to working, except then... I've just figured out that no contacts are online on my laptop and when I try to send a message to one of them, the following error is printed : The following message could not be delivered to all recipients: My message. On the other machine, everything is cool, I can talk to all my contacts, even my facebook contacts, that's cool.

Please see 1 and 2 dot png to see what it does exactly. On each pictures, we see in our left the WLM from one of my computer, where it's working. On our right, it is the version installed on my laptop, wich doesn't work. As you can see, I STILL can receive messages from my contacts, but I can't send them a message or see them online on my laptop.

Oh BTW, as you can see, I'm a french from Quebec, if there's something you don't understand, please let me know!

Answer:My contacts aren't online (WLM 2011)

Try uninstalling WLM 2011 and then clean up the registry, if you can - clean hands. Then install again.

I hard/ master reset my Lumia 1020 Windows 8.1 phone because it was running a bit buggy.
I have done this on previous occasions, with no ill effects. As soon as I sign in my Microsoft account, Facebook account, email accounts, etc., my contacts have synced with Facebook and all is as it was before the reset.
This time, with very few exceptions, my contacts are not syncing with my Facebook contacts...and it seems 'buggy' when I try to link. The Facebook profile photos are not showing up with my contacts.
At first I chalked it up to the possibility that it just needed time to sync, but in past resets, this was accomplished within the space of 4-6 hours or so. It's been 18 hours since my reset, and it has only registered/synced only about 20 of 800 contacts.
Any idea what may be going on?

Answer:Why aren't my contacts repopulating/syncing with Facebook after Master Reset?

Go into the Facebook app and go in settings. there you can select connect with phone.
There is also the sync status. I just found out as well that they are not even listed under "emails+accounts" anymore.

I know I am not going to use the correct jargon, I will do my best to ask the appropriate question though.
My wife was recently targeted by a (phishing?) scam, a (dishonest person) sent her an email, disguised (spoofed?) as her boss, his name and requesting a wire transfer to an account. This is not an uncommon request in their buisness. It was from (his name) she then sent him a text to confirm, which he did not respond to promptly, so she emailed him back and noticed that (his name) linked to an unknown email address.
Follow me so far? This is fraud.
I have been targeted by something similar to this but-much more benign in nature as this was a considerable sum. Again, this is common in her business.
Is there some sort of spam filter...something that "red flags" a name in your contacts that is from an email address that is different:
Attention! This "John Smith" does not match the "John Smith" in your contacts.

If not, is there another sort of safeguard that we could consider?

Hi everyone,

Recently, I have received two emails with no subjects and only a single link in the body of the message. The emails were received a few days apart and are from people I know and have in my address book. I can also see the emails were sent to several other people besides me.

I copied one of the links and pasted it into my browser (running sandboxie) and the link was to a site selling products like Viagra and such. I'm using the free version of sandboxie and don't have it set up to use with outlook express.

Is it my PC or the PC of one of my contacts that has likely been infected ?

I'm going to do a full virus scan with Avira and perhaps a-squared / emisoft.

I'm using outlook express with my ISP for email, does it sound like I need to change my login password ? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer:I have been receiving spam emails from my contacts

It is my guess that someone on your contact list has had their address list hi-jacked and that is why you are receiving these emails.Changing your password only affects the email that you send out, not the ones being received.
Have a look at the addresses and if they are not the ones you know, set up the JUNK mail to filter them out.

I have a clients computer and she is claiming people on her contact list are getting emails she did not send and which also turn out to be virus's. I have formatted the system and it is still doing it. How would we go about stopping this? Has her account been compromised? Does she need to change her password maybe?

Answer:Windows Updates Aren't Downloading, Getting Error Messages

I presume this a bug in XP SP3 as it is still in beta stage. You should uninstall that and wait till it is a stable version before you use it on a important personal PC. Don't forget to submit a bug report for SP3 - that'll get you invited for more testing (and you may get some personalized support with fixing it on your system).I wonder... If you uninstall SP3 do you keep all your updates?

I've got a client who has started receiving duplicate messages. This has just recently started to occur. She is using Netscape Messenger (v.4.7), with Win98. I don't believe that she has changed any of her settings, so does anybody have a suggestion?


Answer:Receiving duplicate messages

Found this. Its for OE though.

The bug appears when you have more than one POP3 mail account on one server, and any of the accounts use the "Leave on Server" option. To use more than one POP3 account on one server, disable "leave on Server" or only use one POP3 account on that server with each instance of the OE client (per windows instance or per machine.) Mike M found a fix for this If you enter the IP address for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you wish to leave the message on the server and the alias name for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you are not leaving the messages on the server. This little fudge, whilst still accessing the same server, seems to overcome the present problems. If you don't know the IP address for your server then may I suggest you ping the server using its alias from a DOS box. This will then report the full IP addres

Hi Chaps,So far today, I've received 15 messages into my mailbox. I'm with Eclipse, and have sent them an e-mail asking how I'm getting these - you see, the addy they're sending to isn't actually mine! For example, e [email protected](my account), and [email protected](my account)- none of my mailboxes are called e [email protected] or [email protected]! All seem to be regarding WW2 Bombings, example one has the subject: 'Dresden bombing is to be regretted enormously' and 'Dresden 1945' and other subjects are in German. At first, I thought I'd got some kinda Virus, but I'm not sure I have, but maybe Eclipse servers has? They all have links in the main body of the messages, directing to WW2 info, mainly how bad a time the Germans had. Has anyone else had these messages? AngeTheHippyxx

I am receiving ?out of memory? messages when I try to save work in word and Excel. After reading some of the threads in this forum during the week I realised I have some problems that need help. I asked my grandson to remove his music onto discs and to uninstall Karzza, Morheus and anything else related.Then I downloaded Ad-aware as advised in the forum. It revealed 644 objects, some were deleted by the program, about 35 items, the others are still there! Things like Dialers, Cydoor, Aureate. Malware, Gator, New.Net, and loads of others I?ve vaguely seen mentioned but smugly thought ?doesn?t effect me? ?I?ve got ZoneAlarm and AVG?. Having installed Ad-aware I? m not sure what to do with it! It asks me to name the file I want quarantined. Does that mean all 644 objects? Would I be better off reformatting? Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you inadvance to anyone who repliesRitaPS.

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I have Windows 7 (64 bit) on my PC.

I have an odd problem with Windows Live Mail. As soon as I installed it, I unchecked the following options under Options -> General:

Check for new messages every ... (30 minutes) and
Send and receive messages at startup.

So these options now DO NOT have the check mark next to them.

Despite this, my Windows Live Mail checks for new email messages on all accounts (both for my ISP, my hosting as well as on Gmail accounts) every 30 minutes or perhaps every 1 hour and downloads any new email messages, even when I don't tell it to do so. I am not sure about the exact time period but it certainly checks for new emails even when I don't tell it to do so. If I leave the computer overnight I always find new emails downloaded by tomorrow morning.

What could be the reason for this and is there any way to permanently switch it off?

Hi. I have a POP email account through NameBargain which is not receiving any emails. I'm using the inbox that NameBargain provides.

The odd thing is it only stopped receiving emails about five days ago - up until then it had been working fine. It is also sending emails (although it's not sending any attachments).

I discovered this issue because I was trying to use this POP through a gmail inbox, and I wasn't receiving the verification email. I've tried sending the account multiple test emails, but no luck.

Does anyone know why this might be happening, and how this issue could be corrected? I would really appreciate some help.

Thank you!

For the last few days I've had trouble receiving some random e-mails. We're running XP Pro and we have a couple of user profiles. Usually if the message is sent to each persons profile either both of them get it or neither one gets it. In one instance though I know for sure that one got it and one didn't even though it's the same computer. That seems to be the exception to the rule and more often than not they both get it or they both don't.

I may get a message from someone, then an hour later they send another message that I don't get and then they may send a third message that I do get. It is very random and it may be an original message that someone sends that I don't get or it may be a reply to my e-mail that I don't get. It's not just happening with one person either, I know of at least several people that send me stuff that I may or may not ever get.

The computer is up to date on maintenance/virus scans etc. I've gone to the web directly to my providers server and I don't have an accumulation of messages there. When I spoke with my provider they didn't have any immediate answers for me but they'll check in with me later they said. They asked if I could get the senders to send an SMTP log to trace the messages from the source but it seems unusual to me since this is happening with multiple sources not just one (sender).

I bought a new pc in June then added DSL a few days later. I recently realized that I'm no longer receiving yahoo offlines on this machine (honestly I'm not sure I ever did on this machine). I first had people IM me when I logged off to see if this was really the problem. I rec'd nothing, even tho they copied and pasted what they'd sent.

Background info. I'm running Norton, SBC Protection tools (minus antivirus per suggestion of Norton -- once Norton trial is over I'll switch to all SBC Protection), and windows built-in firewall.

What I've tried.
1. Treating Yahoo as an 'exception'/control panel
2. SBC Customer Service
3. Yahoo Customer Service
4. Googleling
5. Eating chocolate.
6. Uninstalling Yahoo Messenger
7. Upgrading to the 7.0 Beta Messenger
8. Called ex-boyfriend who claims to 'have skills'
9. Auto Repair (rec'd message can't clear cache DNS)
10. Cleared cookies, history, etc.

So far, none of the above helped (okay maybe the chocolate).

I am running Outlook 2016 on an HP laptop, purchased new November 2015, with Windows 7 Professional and MS Office. Outlook stopped receiving messages automatically about 3 weeks ago. I went into file/options/advanced. It looks like everything is set up for automatic receive whether online or offline. When I click on the send/receive all folders button, a window opens, the green bar runs halfway across while ?task 1 of 2? displays. The window then closes. I?m guessing the ?send? task is working but ?receive? is not. The problem has been worsening. I can go days without messages showing up in Outlook.

In order to read messages I need to open Comcast Xfinity email. Thinking the problem was too little space I deleted old messages and emptied the trashcan. My usage is now just 10% of my allocation. There is no problem with Comcast (as far as I can determine) but incoming messages are not showing up in Outlook.

I rebooted and received a number of Windows updates. The problem continues.

As I mentioned, this started about 3 weeks ago. I haven?t loaded new software or made other changes aside from the Windows updates. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Guys,

I am dealing with a mailbox where emails just seem to be refused when they could be vaguely spam like. The server is a private mail server (not Gmail etc). I have tried sending a load of spam to get account through a spam tester. 7 emails sent from the spam tester. A few got through and delivered to the inbox which, whilst isn't brilliant, is better than not getting them at all. 2/3 of them simply were not received at all. This is on a brand new Thunderbird set up using IMAP.

Interestingly, a company emailed this mailbox and they received the following reply. The email was never received:

Answer:Outlook 2003 not receiving messages

Mail isn't SENT anywhere - it is retrieved by whichever program you use to access your ISP's POP3 server. If you have Outlook Express configured to retrieve your mail automatically, without leaving messages on the server, there will be no mail for Outlook to collect. Delete your mail settings in Outlook Express and make sure it isn't set to try to retrieve mail, then set up Outlook with your email settings and get it to retrieve mail instead.

It used to be fine but is not any more.

While there are surely new messages on a server (Gmail in particular) Thunderbird doesn't get them. There's sometimes a message at the bottotm : receiving messages (i.e.) 1 of 5 but after a while it stops and no new messages are loaded. I'm sure everything is well configured as it used to work fine until these days.
Is it b/c there are too many messages on my account??

What's stranger is that sometimes TBird's trying to get 'new' messages which've already been downloaded before. It displays then 'receiving messages 1 of 21' (while only two or three are new!!, not 21!) and sometimes one message is downloaded 30 times at a time!!!

Is there anybody using TBird with the same problem??

These popups are occurring about once a day. They have various names, and Google searches on the DLL names are returning no items. SpyBot appears to believe that I'm clean, as does SuperAntiSpyware. Funny thing - neither SpyBot nor SuperAntiSpyware start automatically upon startup any longer (this has me worried...)

Per Windows Update instructions, I recently updated to IE 8. This may/may not (probably!) was around the time the popup began occurring, but better to be safe than sorry.

Another issue I've encountered recently, around the same time frame, is that my SigmaTel C-Major Audio card has stopped working. Device Manager seems to think it's functioning properly. I've tried disabling/re-enabling it, as well as shutting down/starting up the system. No help. I've tried using the WIndows troubleshooting tool to help fix it. Nada.

One other thing that happened around the same time that's probably unrelated - I stopped receiving email notifications from Facebook (stop laughing.) No settings were changed.

Any help on any of my crap would be appreciated.

The info bar at the bottom says that the images are downloading but it's happening really slowly and even when it finishes there's still nothing.

Before that happens it also says "error on page" then "done but with errors on page".
I'd appreciate any help.
Many thanks.

I receive text messages from everyone except one person. I get text messages from this person just fine unless it is a group text. If in a group text I get texts from everyone else fine except this one person and it just shows his name with no content?

Answer:Not receiving content in a text?

You should check to make sure others aren't having this problem with that specific individual. I've often seen MMS issues from specific android phones and it's usually specific to their phone. Has nothing to do with your settings.

I bought two brand new laptops and these laptops are unable to connect to any website other than google through my router.

I have tried to connect these new laptops through wifi to a public cafe and the internet works fine and everything.

The wifi that I am having trouble connecting with has three other computers that can connect and surf the whole internet.

This problem has been haunting me for many weeks and now no one uses these laptops!

Hi I am new to this forum, so please bear with me. Could anyone help with an annoying problem I am receiving countless error messages -yellow triangle- informing me that almost every application I go into is corrupted. It then informs me to utilise the chkdsk facility via the run command in the start menu. I have done this and it gives me the usual message of system is in use run chkdsk on reboot etc. I always type Y , but on the reebot I get a blue screen informing me that my op system is NTFS and this cannot be locked or checked, leaving me back to square one. How do I use my chkdsk to address these corrupted files. Any advice welcome. Many thanks Tom

Answer:Receiving lots of corruption messages cant use chkdsk


Try this click Start>>Run type cmd click Ok.

In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r click Enter

You will be asked if you want a check disk to run on next startup click Y and then press Enter

Restart your PC

I use Outlook 2002 and our email server is through Dreamhost. Lately, one of my coworkers has been opening his Outlook to find upwards towards 100 copies of each email he's receiving. I have:

- contacted Dreamhost and they told me there is no problem on their side.
- deleted his email account after exporting all of his email information to a new .pst folder, restarted his computer and then created a new account in Outlook (didn't work)
- deleted his email account off of Dreamhost and recreated it (still did not work)

I don't know a whole lot about email servers and was hoping someone has some idea of what to do to alleviate this issue? I can't find anything when I google that I haven't done already.


Answer:Receiving multiple copies of email messages

Hi erinlmichael

See if anything in these articles helps:

You are prompted for your password, and you may receive duplicate e-mail messages if your profile has two POP3 accounts in Outlook

Duplicate e-mail messages are downloaded from a POP3 e-mail server account in Outlook 2003

Also try disabling email scanning if it is currently enabled, to see if that makes a difference.

Let us know what happens.

Hi people,                 I help teach elderly people to access the Internet and use email (all at a fairly low level). In the course of doing this I  receive regular email messages in my Outlook Express from some of the students.  The strange thing is some of them do not show any message in the body of the email. When I open the message it actually tells me in the blue title bar that it is sent in Unicode (UTF-8).  If I go into View and encoding I can select a code to read it(even though there are strange characters in addition to the message).  All the students use a basic site  called as their email supplier but not all their messages to me are hidden.  There seems to be no way I can alter "sending" codes in myguide so that is not an option. I am told that Outlook Express is technically very clever (I'm not) and will recognise different codes and translate them in order that I can read the messages.  This does not seem to be happening (but only sometimes) in this case.  So, once again it is over to you clever lot to advise please. Thanks a lot.Graham.

Very little comp. experience here so offer your advice accordingly.

Tried to open my Word 2003 application received error: Application not found.

Went to my comp. panel tried to open my Add/remove programs received this error message:
C: \WINDOWS\system32\rundl32.exe Application not found.

None of my applications work-can't open the Display on my comp. panel-nothing.

Please help-thank you!

Answer:Receiving error messages for common applications

More than likely you are infectedPlease follow these instructions:Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A DDS / HJT Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.When you have done that, post your log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Removal Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the Malware Response Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.The MR team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your postPlease be patient and good luck

My husband recently tried re-installing Windows Live OneCare -- we'd had it installed previously, but he'd had to replace his hard drive because it crashed and then had to re-install all programs. We experienced a problem registering Live OneCare, so we were working with Microsoft Tech Support to resolve that issue. One of the steps that they had us try in troubleshooting was to download and run a registry cleaner. We were finally able to install Live OneCare -- still having problems registering, but that's an issue for Microsoft Tech Support to help us resolve -- but now Outlook on my husband's computer is unable to receive e-mail from our ISP's mail server. He can send messages just fine, but not receive them. The error message he's getting is 0X800CCC90. Does this problem ring a bell with any of you? Our ISP has been unable to fix the problem. This is quite frustrating. . .

Thanks for any suggestions you could provide. =)
