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.

Hi all at Techguy, I hope someone can help me!!!

My outlook express has changed to Microsoft outlook! This has also caused me problems with Word and Excel.
I cannot open any e mails in outlook express as it says there is an error. I can go back to a restore point fro a few days ago and all is fine, a day later it changes again to Microsoft outlook and the same problems occur.

When I try and open a word or excel document it says preparing to install!!

I can not open attachments in my outlook also!!

I have AVG as my Anti virus protectiion

Hello. I'm having an issue with Outlook 2007, as part of Office 2007 Ultimate. In the past week or so, I've started to have a strange issue when launching Outlook 2007. I have resolved the issue with a work-around, but thought that I'd post here for suggestions.

OS: Windows Vista Premium 64-bit
App: Outlook 2007 as part of Office 2007 Ultimate

Outlook 2007 configured to start in Outlook Today. When launching Outlook, receive warning that Outlook did not start properly the last time it was launched and asks if desired to start in Safe Mode. Choice not found to make any difference in Outlook launch.

Sometimes, Outlook launches properly from this point.
Sometimes, Outlook launches and hangs wtih "Databinding" showing in lower-left corner of Outlook; Outlook will eventually "un-hang" and seems to work properly.
Sometimes, Outlook launches and hangs with "Loading Dataset" showing in lower-left corner of Outlook; Outlook will eventually "un-hang" and seems to work properly.
Have not been able to determine any course of events that determines which of the three occurs.

As a work-around, disabled "Start in Outlook Today" and issue no longer occurs; Outlook launches without problem or hang.

I've searched all through Technet and MSDN resources, but have not been able to locate any article referencing this issue.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or thoughts to resolve this rather annoying &q... Read more

Good day;
I have followed all directions in the "read this first" post. I pretty much do that every week or so anyhow.
Anyway, the problem. Recently on MS Outlook, when I check my mail, I find I have 10-20 messages in there from either, Postmaster Hotmail, Mail delivery Service, Mail Delivery System or Mail Administrator with a Subject line saying either "Mail System Error-Returned mail or Delivery Status Notification or Undelivered Mail-Return to Sender and a few others. The text of the message is along these lines:
This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:

The user(s) account is temporarily over quota.

<[email protected]>
<[email protected]>

Please reply to <[email protected]>
if you feel this message to be in error
I have no idea who these people are.
I am religous in running my updated AdawareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster and also have EZ Anti-virus which is updated and has recently picked up a lot of incoming viruses via emails. I dont open any emails from Addees I do not know. I have run online AV scans and have not found anything. I also have Kerio Personal Firewall.
I am totally up to date with all WinXPSP2 updates as well as MS Office 2003 updates
Any idea why I am getting all this garbage.

I recently did an upgrade from Win ME to WinXP Pro on my Mom's computer
Dell Dimension 8100
Not sure of specs exactly but- (sorry)
2.6Mhz P4
512MB Ram

*pretty much stock Dell components for this system*

I installed Outlook
Outlook Express

Outlook Express is their preferred "Default" Mail handler and I have set
it up to be so.

The problems are these:

When connecting (Dial up ISP) Outlook automatically receives Mail without being opened (can hear the mail received notification).

Outlook Express was set up with two Identities, but all mail is going to just one identity.
In other words ALL mail is going into one Identity's mailbox, thus mixing up the mail and not separating it.

I checked Identities again, and it appears to be set correctly, so I don't know why all mail is defaulting to the one Identity's mailbox.

I am not familiar with Outlook or Outlook Express as I don't use those programs much, but know enough to set them up.

Can't figure this one out, please help if you have any ideas, thanks.

I just recently bought a new computer. It came with a trial version of Office 2003 which includes Outlook. My old computer used Outlook Express. I have been trying to import my dbx files from OE into the new O but it just won't cooperate with me. I have tried both methods recommended to me and both have failed. It appears I need to have OE installed on my new computer for either way to work. I haven't been able to download it because it won't let me download on older version of IE6. The XP service pack doesn't have it. I am unsure what do to at this point.

I tried this method: http://www.directron.com/movmail.html

And this one: http://www.outlook-express-backup.com/
To make matters worse, the OE on my old computer won't let me export using the program export function. I downloaded OE again hoping it would correct the problem. It didn't work.

Is there something I can do or do I need to delete 4 years worth of email. (Some of it is useless, but some of it is important.)

Any help would be greatly appreciately.

I have been using Outlook Express 6 which seems to be working fine. However, I wanted to switch to Outlook. When I try to install Outlook, I get a message that "Outlook Express 5 or higher needs to be installed." It is installed and working.
When I boot up the computer, I get a message that "Outlook Express has been removed and asks if I want to remove related files." I don't want to lose all of my stuff in Outlook Express, so I say "No" and the system continues with boot-up.
I am running Windows XP Pro with 2.53 GHz system and 1.00 GHz RAM. I have scanned for Adware, and Spyware and run a good antivirus program (Avast) which is kept up to date. I am also using Office XP.
Can someone please assist with this or will I have to do a complete "format" and start over.

I have the same problem in both applications (outlook XP/2003 beta).
I have two E-mail accounts.

1. is an exchange account (current set as default)
2. a private email account
when I send internal mails (in the office) outlook use the exchange server...as I set (that is OK!).
but when I will send an external email (for example to [email protected] )
Outlook use also the exchange server to send the email and I get an error message.
The only possibility to send external mails is for me to set the email account by hand for every
outgoing mail.

The proble doesn't exist with outlook 2000.
Outlook 2000 automatically use the second email account when it see that the mail must
be send to an extrenal account.

How can I set Outlook XP / Outlook 2003 beta to do the same as Outlook 2000?

Hey, I really need help.

So I was so sick of problems with Vista that I reinstalled my Windows XP on my computer. I migrated my emails back into Outlook Express where it had been 2 weeks ago before I started using Vista.

The folders are all there, but now I cannot send or receive emails consistently. My account settings are perfect. And I have even deleted my account several times and put it back in. I have tried using Secure Password Authentication but still no consistent sending and receiving.
Basically I have been able to get my emails and send my emails a couple of times today but now I just can't send anything. And I made no change in settings between these occurences.
My email is [email protected] So it is not a problem with hotmail.

And it's not the computer I don't think because I tried to set up the account on another computer and it still wou;dn't send or receive.

It is also not a problem with our mail server cause my boss is getting his emails just fine.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I should do?

I recently installed MS Outlook 2000 after having used OE for ages. I particularly like the calendar feature. However, I'm encountering 2 problems. (1) It's horribly slow in booting up initially. Takes approx. 3 minutes. (2) If I post 2 or more emails in succession, without waiting for each to be transmitted, they seem to lockup in the Outbox. I have to be sure, after completing a message and hitting Send, that I first go to Send/Receive and make sure that the message transmission clears before commencing a second message.

once in a while, my computer get stucked. it's always happening when I'm using either Outlook or IE. when I say "stuck" I mean that these programs stop responding (whilst I can work with the rest of the programs on the computer), and when I try to restart windows or shut it down, I just can't. I need to manually power it off.
This happens almost EVERY day. it can happen 5 minutes after a restart or 5 hours. when these programs get stuck I also can't open WMP or winamp. like I said, the rest is fine.

Hello, I recieved this e-mail from a friend today, and I detest OUtlook, so I was hoping someone here could hopefully provide a solution.

Hey Andrew,

George is not able to send or receive email from his outlook account. I already contacted Verizon who does our webhosting and verified that there are no emails backing up on the site. We do use MS Exchange Server, he has access to our public calendar and contacts but cant get emails. I went into www.mail2web.com and found a couple of emails waiting for him but that doesnt seem normal since he usually receives at least 20 emails a day.

When i try to send an email from his outlook it tells me that there is an error in his personal pst file, to close all mail reciepents and run the inbox repair tool. I tried to run that but it asks me what folder to scan. When i out in his pst file it tells me that its not found.

Ive attached his log from Adaware for your review. Any help you could get me would be very much appreciated.

I'm the office gopher trying to fix my boss's laptop in lieu of anybody else both capable of doing so and with any free time. Although he can open Outlook, he is unable to send, receive, or delete emails. When he attempts to, this error message appears:
The file *\Outlook.pst is in ue and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again. You might need to restart your computer.Click to expand...

I believe the problem might have to do with the 20230 emails in his inbox. I have attempted to run Microsoft's Oversized PST Recovery Tool, but when I attempt to select the file Outlook.pst, this error message appears.
That file is not a valid .PST file.Click to expand...

Operating system is XP, Outlook 2007.

A:Problems with Outlook.pst

Hi there. I am not really sure what the deal is with outlook, but I do know that the PST file is his personal/archival file and not the main inbox file. At least it is that way with mine, using exchange server. I am not 100% sure, but I think the main folder uses the "outlook.ost" file. If you go into account settings, is the data file the outlook.ost file?

(disclaimer - Not sure that I am right...just thought i would throw it out there...)

I started to have problem sending mails from application Maximizer, that uses Outlook for sending mails. It all works ok, til a few days when I upgraded Windowows on SP2 (and also IE and OE 6.O)
I think it does not recognise the form of mail addres if it is written like this: name surname <[email protected]> (that is the form, that the other application enters the emai addreses while using outlook).
We use Mcafee av 4.5.1 on all machines. When send and receive it returns error: The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected email address was Michelle Petitt <[email protected]>. Subject 'Test', Account: Server: smtp.siol.net, Protocol: SMTP, Server response: 550 Cannot route to <[email protected]>', Port 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number 0x800CCC79

I have Windows XP - I bought the laptop last year, and since after christmas I have had problems with my Outlook Express.

It may take 3 -6 times to send it!

I am with AOL and have been told that they don't like you using other servers for outgoing mail (as I don't use theirs)

Could this be the case and that they are treating some of my emails like spam? Sometimes if I change the name of the email they send quicker rather than using the reply option!

Could it be a problem with Outlook and something has happened like a bug etc??
I hope you can help me

Do you have your AOL account setup as this link shows?:

Are you not using the smtp.aol.com as the Outgoing mail server setting?

If so, see if disabling those options makes a difference.

A:problems in my outlook xp

Could be there are too many messages stored in Outlook in your usual Windows user account. When you created a new user account the Outlook folders would have been new and therefore empty, because Windows keeps separate identities and folders for each Windows user account in a different location.

Maybe exporting then deleting some of your messages to a backup folder will solve the problem?

Using outlook express or any other mail client, everything works fine (so no problem with the mailserver).
I know there's a ticket on Technet about this, but the solution provided there is patching to SP1, which i have already done

Hi There
I am using Windows 2000 Professional and have experienced a problem with Outlook. It will not start up, it just hangs at the info section.
Have updated AVG virus protection and run a scan, this did not detect any viruses. Tried to run a Degrag, it ran well on the C drive, but will not complete a defrag on the D drive. (These discs are partitioned).
Started up in safe mode and tried to degrag and starting outlook again but still both would not work.
Ran a spybot search and destroy with new updates. No problems there.
Word, Excel seem to open up fine. Outlook express opens up fine.
I have spoken to the users of this pc and they said the only thing that happend was when they came back to their PC when a phone call was being transfered that the screen went all funny and hung. Rebooted PC then realised could not get in to Outlook etc as above.
Could you please advise if there are any other suggestions.

A:HJT Log Outlook Problems

I take it D drive is actually just a second partition on the system drive? The fact that defrag won't complete could be a sign that the hard disk is failing, with the damaged clusters being in the area used by the D partition.

You should be able to identify the manufacturer of the disk in Device Manager, then visit their website (support) to see if they have a disgnostic tool you can download and run. This runs a test and tells you if it's failing, though it's not always 100% correct which is why PC manufacturers insist you run their own tests when making a warranty claim.

But since you are having problems which could be related to disk failure (esp the defrag) I would be inclined to believe the diagnostic test results, and if they confirm failure get your data backed up as soon as possible and buy a new disk.

My Outlook stopped functioning. I have two email addresses. One formal and one informal. The formal address was not sending or receiving and blocked the informal address from doing the same. I deleted the formal account and the informal one worked. I called my internet provider and they changed the email from a Pop3 to an IMAP account. Now where I used o have an inbox, sent folder, out folder Junk email folder, now I still have them BUT I have a separate one for each email address. My formal address has an inbox, sent folder, Junk folder and draft folder. So does the informal address. Now when I delete an email from my inbox, instead of it being removed from the inbox and placed in the deleted folder, a line is drawn through it but it remains in the inbox. My inbox states there are over 300 emails in the box but they all have lines through them. I have tried to remove them and if I send each email to another folder, it just copies the email and leaves it in the inbox too. How do I removed the... Read more

Although I have anti-virus software, I think my computer has picked up a virus somewhere. I use Outlook for sending work related e-mail. Although my e-mail appears to be going to whom it is addressed, some of the addressees have stated that they are not receiving my e-mail. I send a lot of e-mail to one particular company, and nobody at that company can receive anything that I send them out of my Outlook, but if I use my personal e-mail account, they receive it just fine.

Also, something is wrong with my CD Rom drive. I put in a CD and the computer recognizes that it's there, if it's a music CD, it'll play just fine, but if it's a software CD, I can not download the software to my computer.

Please help.

A:Outlook problems etc...

Do you use Outlook, or outlook express?

When you say "download the software to my computer" do you mean installing the software, or are you trying to copy the data to the computer? If you mean installing, do you get any errors, or does it just not do anything? If the autoplay is disabled it may not prompt you to do anything. Try inserting a disc, then access the disc manually. Go into My computer then double-click your CD\DVD drive.

When i open outlook it loads fine, but then when i try and click on a message, it freezes completely. I tried to repair the installation and it asked for a Office disk, but i have not got the same office disk as used to install it so it doesnt work. Is there anything i can do without completely removing it and then starting again with installing office with another disk?

A:Outlook problems

without the office disks, your best bet would probably be to download office updates ofr your outlook software. This may help you.

Hi.........I'm hoping that someone can assist me, as I have got great help from here before.

I have an older PC that I can't replace/update (well probably could) because of my web site that uses an older version of windows. Anyway, I have Outlook Express 6 and it has suddenly started freezing up when I try to delete certain emails (mainly Facebook emails). When I click on the error report, here is what I get:

Outlook Errors
szAppName: msimn.exe
szAppVer: 6.0.2900.5512
saModName: hungapp

And, my internet explorer is also starting to slow down a great deal. My system: emachines T3985, Celeron CPu 2.93 GHz w/ 496 or ram. Windows XP, Home Edition 2002, Service Pack 3.

Also, if I fgure out a way to get my web site to work (Cute Site Builder) with a newer version of windows, how can I transfer EVERYTHING (emails, etc.) to a new PC? Buy a drive and put it on that?

If anyone can help me, I will greatly appreciate it!

Not sure if I have a virus or hardware issues. Microsoft Outlook regularly generates errors and shuts down or locks up. Windows Installer pop-ups now appearing that are apparently wanting to install or re-install Outlook or some portion of Outlook. Business contact manager often crashes and requires computer re-booting to bring back. McAfee Security Center toolbar for Outlook no longer shows up with options to note spam or good messages.

The first problem is this:

One of the users in my office has problems recieving mail but it is
intermittant and only from 2 or 3 senders. For instance 1 user sent him mail
yesterday (7/12/06 8:56pm) and he didn't recieve it. This morning (7/13/06
9:30am) we asked the same user to send him the exact same piece of mail and
he recieved it.

Things done to solve the problem:
1. Reinstalled outlook 2003 on his machine.
2. Reinstalled Office on his mahine
3. Turned off his flters.
4. Recreated his filters manually
5. Checked his views

After reinstalling outlook it seems to have been narrowed down to one user
but it is a problem I can't put my finger on. I also checked the mail server
and the mail is sorted into his account then his local machine will check and
download it but it doesn't show up in his mail box. Any help would be
Problem 2:
Another user will send email to certian users (narrowed down to 2 specific
users) and somtimes when they reply to his email he can't see their reply but
if he asks them send a whole new email he can see it fine.

I have looked everywhere to see if anyone else has had any simmilar issues
but can't find anything. Any help would be appreciated.

I am running Outlook 2007 (office 2007) on a PC with OS Windows XP professional. This has been working fine for more than a year, untill now.
It seems as if Outlook is sending messages that I have previously received, both to me and to all the senders and other e-mail adresses in the "copy to". These messages do not appear in the outbox, so I noticed when I started to receive a lots of old e-mails again some days ago. I have also been getting e-mails from people wondering from where they come, and thereby I knew that other people were getting them too. It seems as if there is no sender specified in the message sent to them when other people get them, and maybe no subject.
To verify that the messages are sent from Outlook I have tested to block SMTP traffic in my antivirus software (F-secure). This showed alert messages every time the "send and receive" routine was run in Outlook, and blocked the messages. I have also installed a program called "Email monitor" to find out, and Outlook is actually trying to send those messages (but not showing them in the outbox, or in the sentbox after sending).
I have multiple e-mail accounts configured in Outlook, but this seems to affect all of them.
I have been trying to do virus scans with F-secure and Ad-Aware, but they haven't found anything. I have also run SDFix, but that didn't help.

Can anyone please help me find out what's the matter?

Thanks on beforehand,

I am running Vista. I am having two issues with Outlook, one minor and one major. My email account is through GoDaddy.

First, the small fish. Whenever I start Outlook I get told something about they cannot verify my security authenticty (I don't remember the exact phrasing). I have to click 'yes' to proceed. Not a biggie. Just a small irritation that I have to do that ever time.

The big problem I have is that I can't send anything over 125kb or so without causing a serious logjam in my outbox. Forget about it if I try to send a 1MB email. I might as well leave for the day and come back. Most emails eventually get sent, they just take FOREVER.

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

OK, here's the problem...Every time I launch Outlook 2002, I am prompted to enter my password even though I check the box for remembering my password. Below is the list of things I have tried with no luck. Thanks for taking the time to read this.First off, I've had the program for a while now and never had this problem. This all started after I reinstalled Office XP after doing a compete reformat of my hard drive and installing Windows XP full version from scratch. (Got a new Hard Drive). When this happened after my reformat, I tried things I found in Microsoft knowledge base and random things I found through google. When nothing worked, I reformatted my hard drive again and reinstalled Windows XP again and reinstalled Office XP again and got the same problem. After the second reformat, I tried the below list of things and I am where I am now. One more thing, keep in mind that this is all installed on a new hard drive. I did do a ?full zero of hard drive? then partition and install the new drive both times. 1. Complete reformat of hard drive with reinstall of Windows XP and clean install of Office XP x 22.

I have gone through a lot with one of the experts here but I still have many problems.

I 1st wrote because I got an error whenever I tried to delete or edit anything in my adress book in Outlook 2003, runing on Windows XP pro. "Outlook.pst has reached it's max size. To reduce the amount of date in this file, select some items you no longer need and permanently detele them using SHIFT & DELETE. You should also consider using the new Outlook Personal Folders File.pst that provides greater capapcity."

I did download that file. In the C:Outlook file I now have:

I have Verizon FiOS and an verizon email. almost everytime I try to open outlook, it fails and I get a vista message saying sorry, send us some info and we will try to fix. Well, I have never heard from microsoft about how I might fix the problem.

What happens is that either the outlook doesn't open at all or if it does open, after it initially receives my messages, it freezes up and won't let me send or receive mail. Also, after closing outlook, usually I have to do it through task master, it will not let me open outlook again unless I restart my computer.

I am very frustrated.....

My elderly neighbour, who normally uses a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7, has recently inherited a pre-owned Apple Mac laptop from her daughter, which she now intends to use upstairs, so as to save her from having to carry one machine up and down with her.

She, having no one else to ask, and knowing that I am perhaps a little more technically minded (I wish! ), has asked me to take a look at the Apple machine in order to hopefully sort out a problem she is experiencing pertaining to Outlook.com.

When using the Toshiba laptop, when she opens Outlook.com using Firefox, down the left-hand side of the email window appears a pane which includes details of her email contacts. When she composes a new email, or wants to forward an existing email to multiple recipients, she is used to just clicking on carbon copy (cc) where she can select from a complete list of all her email contacts arranged in alphabetical order. However, on the Apple laptop, and when using Safari to view what I presume to be the same Outlook.com email screen, she says that no such list of her email contacts appears.

Myself, only being familiar with XP and Win 7, and never having used a Mac in my entire life, am not certain what to try in order to correct this issue.

Using Outlook Express (I realize that Outlook Express and Outlook.com share no similarity other than name) I understand how to migrate email contacts and emails from the store folder over to another PC, but as she is using an online email serv... Read more

In the absence of any replies, and after a little more research of my own, I am beginning to get the idea (rightly or wrongly) that although Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail) is accessible to users of both Windows and Mac, some features, such as the contacts pane, only become accessible after installing Microsoft Outlook Connector on the Windows device being used to view the account, and that as no version of this software is available for the Mac, some features such as the contacts cc pane are unavailable. Can anyone confirm my understanding as correct?

I did come across this:
