Preferred Solution: Outlook express slow loading

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It takes forever for OE to load. Its OE 5 and I'm using WinME if that helps. Any ideas?

A:Outlook Express: Loading Slow

How many emails are stored in OE? The more emails stored, the slower OE is to open.

Use DBXtract to save emails OUTSIDE of OE as eml files. Say you've got a folder in OE named Business. The actual location of this "folder" is in the C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{bunch of alphanumerics}\Microsoft\Outlook Express folder, as the FILE named Business.dbx.

The single FILE actually contains all the emails you've saved in the FOLDER within OE. Extracting the emails so that each one is a separate eml file will allow you to store them "off-site", so to speak and speed up OE opening. In addition, if your OE is set up correctly, then double-clicking on an eml file will cause OE to open the file and display the email message.

Obtain DBXtract here:

I recently started using outlook express to check my hotmail account along with my student email account. It ran just fine for the first few days. Then I removed MSN messenger from my computer and since then the prog has been acting a little silly. It takes a long time to load up in comparison to the rest of my software. Also, from what I can tell, whenever I receive and email I always get two copies of it. Any advice?

I'm running XP Pro and from what I understand the full blown version of Outlook is on the Office XP Pro discs and I have all of those.

You may have deleted a file that was being shared by both. Try reinstalling msn messenger and then uninstalling it again. When it prompts you that there is a file that may be in use by another program do you still want to delete it select no. This is probably the simplest solution to test though I can not guarantee it will work but you've got nothing to lose in trying it.

You can download msn messenger at this link:

Hi everyone,

Outlook Express V.6 SP1 keeps on crashing all the time while loading with the following message:

Unhandled exception in msimn.exe (directdb.dll)

I reinstalled Internet Explorer to no avail.

I reinstalled Outlook Express to no avail.

I reinstalled Windows XP to no avail.

I tried to rebuild the registry for Outlook Express to no avail
(i.e. "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg)

I tried Microsoft's file checker to no avail
(i.e. >sfc /scannow)

What do I do next? Buy a new PC perhaps?

I think the registry is corrupted but is there a way to bypass the registry checking?

I recently ran Norton Systemworks One Button Checkup and after that Outlook Express is taking about 45 seconds to load. I have had no problems that are like this in the recent past. The problems that were found with the check up were......

Program Integrity....Missing Files...DotNetInstaller.exe cannot access a necessary file....mscoree.dll. Twice.

Virus Definitions....I ran the fix and it started fixing and then stopped like 5 times and told me to run it again. It never completed and I figured that it was because I have and outdated Norton program and didnt buy the new one.

Any help is appreciated.

I just updated my Windows XP professional to XP2 and now my Outlook Express Main Identity is so slow that it is unuseable. It takes 30 seconds to over a minute for message bodies to display if I click on the message in the preview pane, and it sometimes takes 15 seconds or more for the message header highlighting to show when I click on the message header.

Additionally, everything in OE goes completely white while it is "thinking" after I move my cursor and click on a message header.

My other OE identities work fine at normal speed, it is just my main identity that is painfully slow. Netscape email works fast with no delay, IE works fine, etc.

I am posting this for my 80 year old father. I visit him about once a week, so any responses to this request will probably not be seen by me for a week. (This may take a while to resolve).

Dad first started having problems with his Outlook Express being VERY slow about a month ago. He doesn't know what he may have done to cause this.

I am not a "techie" by any stretch of the imagination, but I searched around on some different forums and found what I believed to POSSIBLY be the answer. The instructions had something to do with MSN messenger, which may have inadvertently been installed when Dad upgraded to IE 7. The instructions said to do the following:

A:Microsoft Outlook Express 6 VERY slow

Hi NokomisEast

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

First, move messages, your Dad wants to keep, to a new folder of his own creation in Outlook Express.
When Outlook Express starts, it will load faster if the Inbox is empty. If the Inbox.dbx file becomes corrupted he could lose all his messages, as Outlook Express will create a new Inbox.dbx file if it cannot use the original one.

After emptying the Inbox folder, compact the Message Store:
Close all windows.
Open Outlook Express
File > Work Offline
Click on the Local Folders folder
File > Folder > Compact All Folders
Walk away from the computer until the process is complete.
Avoid starting this process if the possibility of a power outage is imminent such as a thunderstorm in progress.

Should the compaction process ever be interrupted, restart it before accessing any folders and allow it to finish.
After the compaction process is finished, close Outlook Express, restart the computer and start Outlook Express to see if it loads faster.

Let us know what happens.

Hi edteach

I've got a procedure for you, but you're going to need to be offline while trying it --- disconnect from any networks, wired or wireless (unplug ethernet cables or modem phone lines, disable wireless) - during this repair. Don't reconnect to any networks until the procedure is complete, and you've got your firewall, AVG, and antispyware running again.

Beforehand -
Have the installation file for AVG handy, either in a folder on your hard drive, or on a CD.

Steps for CleanUp

My Outlook Express 6 was working great, then in the past few days I noticed a few automatic updates and now using my Outlook Express has become much slower. I used to be able to click a mail and delete it in a flash, but now it takes about four seconds. In fact, everything in my OE6 is like this now. It has all gotten much slower than it was. Very frustrating.

I am using Windows XP Pro, with Firefox as my default browser and IE7 as backup browser.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I get lots of email and it's taking me a ton of extra time each day to go through them all.

A:Slow stratup of Outlook Express

Hi. I just got a new Dell Dimension 3000 with Windows XP. Everything runs fine and fast except Outlook Express 6.0. Not connected to internet and disabled instant messenger loading - no effect. I would have just installed Win 98 or 2000, but I believe the video drivers only work in XP.

If the email folder contains less than 30MB of mail, then everything is fine. However, I have one identity with about 450MB of mail. I imported 50 MB of it and it is very slow when switching between folders. If I import the whole thing, then it just freezes up. Unfortunately, I cannot delete any more emails - it is for business.

I had two other computers - one with Win 98 and the other with Win 2000 and Outlook Express 5.0. I had 1.6 Gig of email in that one identity and no slowness at all. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this problem, help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm new at this...so here goes.
My cable access provider is Cox. They are in the middle of a changeover to a new system because their provider "Excite" is going belly up. About 4 weeks ago I converted to their new system. I had a few conversion problems going from [email protected] to to Cox.net however they helped me set up the new account. However, I have noticed that my Outlook Express has slowed way down. Working my email is agony in slow motion. Buttons disappear when I click them and very slow to react to action. For example, if I hit the "Reply" button to resend a message, the reply button disappears while I wait for it to finally bring up the reply email form. Cox checked all of my speeds and said they were fine. I upgraded Outlook Express from 5.0 to 5.5. No change. My hard disk has memory available. My RAM (64mg) shows space available. When I run Word or Excel they seem fine (fast). I do have a genealogical program (FTM) that is loaded with data and it might be running a bit slow but usually seems fine. My browser, Internet Explorer does not seem to be a problem. On Monday I ran Disk Scan and defrag and my problem continues. I feel this problem is probably related to the Cox changeover because the problem started at the same time, although I guess this could be a coincidence. Can you help?

Hi wonder if anyone can help.
I am running windows xp with service pack 2.
I have got an AMD ATHLON 64 processor (3000+) 2.00GHz & 512MB RAM.

When i first boot my computer up Outlook express 6 takes about 5 minutes to open. If i leave it for about 5 minutes before trying to open it it opens straight away.
All of my other programs open immediately.
I have disconnected from the internet and turned my anti virus off and it still does it so this is not my problem.
I have not got any programs set to do a scan of my computer on startup.
I have scanned my pc for viruses and spyware but found nothing.
If i open task manager my CPU usage is at 0.
Can anyone help.

My Outlook program seems to take longer than usual to open now. Is this usually just due to the number of emails (with attachments) that I have on file? or is there another way of determining why it's slow?

Also, our daughter has been downloading images onto the hard drive very frequently lately....what is the potential that these will eventually slow things down for everyone who uses the computer? We're suggesting that she start saving these kinds of files onto CD's to keep things running fast.

Any other "speed education" tips you can provide would also be appreciated.

Thanks again! I'm so happy to have found you guys......you outdo any and all of the other tools we have for helping us with troubleshooting on the computer!!

Unable to start a DCOM Server: {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541}. The error:
"The system cannot find the file specified. "
Happened while starting this command:

In the registry editor in the folder {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541}/InProcServer32 there's a strange entry "ThreadingModel" with a value "Apartment".
In the /ProgID folder there's an entry "(Standard)" with a value "Messenger.MessengerApp.1".

Would anybody know what is the problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

This is my first post here. I generally consider myself pretty computer savvy, however, my mother-in-laws computer has me stumped.

I have hijack thised anti-malwared that with most of the latest software for removing viruses spyware and malware.

I'm almost 100% positive this computer is clean as a whistle. I may be wrong.

Is it possible that the amount of saved emails the mother-in-law has stored on here computer could make Windows XP load freakishly slow?

If so, any suggestion to prevent such slow boot times without deleting her thousands of emails?
