Malicious update for Microsoft Outlook / Outlook Express (KB910721)

Q: Malicious update for Microsoft Outlook / Outlook Express (KB910721)

This morning as I trawled the spam queues a sense of deja-vu descended on me when this subject line caught my eye:
Update for Microsoft Outlook / Outlook Express (KB910721)
Didn?t I see this a while ago and didn?t it contain a rather nasty Trojan?
The format of the October version differs slightly in that it includes a link to a website from which you may download the ?Microsoft/Outlook/Outlook Express Update? rather than an attached executable.

Yes, I just recently installed Microsoft Office 2010 Pro onto my computer. I have run into a bit of a problem. I wanna make Microsoft Outlook 2010 the default email client for my user side and I wanna leave Outlook Express as default for another user on my computer. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this because once you pick a default email program on one user desktop it also makes it the default for other users on the computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
"Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES
Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

if anyone knows, pls let me know, so I can fix my goof.

thx

How do I make Microsoft Outlook the default email program? I make the change in IE version 5, but when I reboot the system (Win 98), Outlook Express is once again selected as the default email program.

I read in a previous post about using the following sequence for making Outlook Express the default. Is there anything similar for Microsoft Outlook? :
------------------------------------------------------
To make Outlook Express your default e-mail client:
Close OE, click Start/Run and enter this command line, complete with quotes, spaces and the /reg switch:

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg

Thanks very much,

Hi,
Recently I have noticed my Dell Vostro laptop has been very slow in booting to a point where I can actually do something with any speed.

I had been reading various forums regarding the problem and the general consensus was that removing unnecessary start-up programs would assist. This I did, and included in it was the removal of Outlook Express as a start-up as I never use it.

I was rather startled to find that the next time I started up Outlook I get the message indicated in the title. When acknowledging the message, Outlook still opens and functions correctly as far as I can see, but this message always coming up is getting a little tedious.

Why would a company require the lesser of two programs to be loaded and started in order that their more powerful program should work? Amazing thought processes at MS.

I have seen answers for this question elsewhere and I have tried their solutions but to no avail. That includes setting IsInstalled in registry key 881dd1c5-3dcf-431b-b061-f3f88e8be88a to a Dword value of 1.

What I have found, is the key {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C} and {7790769C-0471-11d2-AF11-00C04FA35D02} in registry directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\AutorunsDisabled. As the first refers to Outlook Express 6 and the other to Address Book 6 I assume that this may have something to do with my problem.

If they are the problem, is there a way of moving these keys out of AutorunsDisable and back into Instal... Read more

My friend just had her computer reformatted after a bad virus contamination. It is still running EXTREMELY slow but has at least been running correctly. She is running XP

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I hope this all makes sense.

A:changing default to outlook express from microsoft outlook

Use the "Import" feature of Outlook Express. if you choose to import "All" folders, it will include all messages and contacts data. or you can choose to import only contacts and not messages.

Obviously, it requires that both Outlook & Outlook Express are currently installed on the same PC.
Go here for a short tutorial: http://www.ehow.com/how_6374425_import-outlook-outlook-express.html

However, it must be pointed out that, for backup purposes, it's much easier to back up data in Outlook than is the case with Outlook Express.

It is possible and you can either export from the File menu in Outlook or import the same way using OE. However, if you already have problems, it may be that your data file is too big for Outlook to handle. Check this by opening My Computer and from the Tools menu, select Folder Options then View. Tick to "Show hidden files an dfolders" and untick "Hide protected system file and folders". Click Apply, accept the warning and OK your way out.

Next, navigate to Documents and Settings>{yourusername}Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook and if your Outlook Data File (type .pst) is larger than 2Gb, go back into Outlook and delete anything you can to trim it down.

Outlook Express will also suffer an overstuffed data file but if you can't do without your historic e-mails, Mozilla Thunderbird can handle up to 4Gb.

Well here's a switch! Doc's needs everyones help for a change.

My mom's computer cannot send and recieve mail on either M/O & O/E. Problem started this yesterday morning some time and I cannot seem to put my finger on the problem.

She runs XP Pro and lives 8hrs away from me, so anything I do is via "remote desktop" and she only has "dialup". Talk about a painful process!

When I click on send and recieve it appears that a connection is being made to the server and infact it even tells me how many messages are there to download. It then starts to download (or appears to) and then suddenly stops and posts an error message stating that the connection to the server was interrupted.

I ran a test on my computer by configuring my M/O using here inbound settings and such and was able to download all her mail without a problem. That leads me to believe the problem is not the server but, infact on her machine.

I have checked all the basic things that I can think of but, at the moment "I'm stumped"

Ideas?

Doc.

A:Microsoft Outlook & Outlook Express

If she's running an antivirus package that does a virtual IP proxie for the incoming/outgoing email AV check, then that might be the source of the problem. Try disabling virus checking for email and see if the behavior changes (This is a known bug in Norton, McAffee, and Avast, but it's rather rare. Usualy only happens for large outgoing attachments).

Also, since this is Dialup, I would check the actual modem to see if there's a problem on the line (or wityh the hardware). To much noise on the line can lead to droped packets and/or decreased bandwidth.

Try using Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 and see if there's still the same problem under that.

Before I reinstall win98se, I would like to backup all my data files including my email messages. How do I backup the outlook express email files? I have attempted to use the export function, but that results in moving the email files to outlook,part of Office2000. I have also attempted to copy the .mbx files in the applications data folder, but that did not work. There must be an easy way to backup/transfer email files. I need the how-to-instructions so that I may copy the appropriate files onto a CD. After a clean-install of win 98se, I plan to copy the email files into the new OUTLOOK EXPRESS program installed by win 98se.
 

A:Microsoft Outlook Express

How I do it is to create a backup folder in Outlook Express. File>New>Folder. Name it “Backup”. You can right click on any item and select move or copy to folder and send it to the backup folder. To back it up just copy the folder. I store all my important e-mails semi-permanently in the backup folder to keep my inbox clear.

There are several easy ways to find it so you can back it up. You can do a search for .dbx folders and just copy the backup folder from there.

You can go Tools>Options>Maintainance>Store folder. It will give you a path to the store folder. To restore a backup just paste your backup into that store folder. You have to create the backup folder in your new Outlook Express so you can overwrite it to restore. I change the location of the store folder to something I can find easily.

You could copy the entire store folder or just the inbox. It seems it would be easier to restore to a fresh Outlook Express by just pasting in the backup folder. All my important e-mails are there where I can easily access them and I don’t clutter up my new inbox.

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.

My sister haphazardly installed windows 7 over the top of vista before I had a chance to back everything up. Fortunately there is a folder called windows.old with all of our data. The only thing I can't find is all the emails from Outlook Express. I have searched the entire C drive for ".dbx" to no avail. The contacts were saved in the /username/ directory just fine but no emalis. This is bad!

Help!!

PLEASE help me! i have been using outlook express for my email for quite some time. Now all of a sudden, it won't let me open my email. A window comes up telling me that outlook express might be installed incorrectly. it's been in there forever. (unless my husband has done something to mess it up, which he denies)! this is what the message box says: Outlook express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized. Outlook Express may not be installed properly.
What can I do? By the way, i am pretty much computer illiterate. Help!

A:Microsoft Outlook Express, Importing

I am curious if instead of just copying from the cd to the directory, have you tried to use the Import utility of OE?

I'm not sure if this is where to post this but I have Microsoft Outlook Express 5 for e-mail on my Windows XP system. The problem I can't figure out how to correct is that on several e-mails when I attempt to open from the inbox or sent items, I get an error box "Outlook Express has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I've tried deleting messages to free up space and using the system restore - no success.

I would greatly appreciate any ideas for solving this problem.

Thanks so much for any help in advance!

Hi ,
I would like to know if is there any way to protect or make possowrd to my microsoft outlokk express, I share my computer with my friends, and I wanna make my microsoft email personalize by creating password when logging in.

Thanks
 

A:Password Microsoft Outlook Express

You can do it when you set up a new identity but its not considered really secure.
This from outlook express's help files:
Identity passwords

You can configure your identity to prompt you for a password when you log on or switch from another identity. This prevents users who do not know your password from logging on as you. The password is also required to delete the identity, or change the identity settings.
Adding a password to your identity makes it more difficult for other users to access your files; however, the level of security the password provides is minimal. Even with a password, it is possible for other users to access your files.

Hello All,

I was backing up all my e-mails and mistakenly changed all the files (DBX) to open with a XML Editor. How do I restore them all to the original file, the file that you can not open.

Second, after I reformat my drive (XP-Home), How do I "import" them back to my Microsoft Outlook Express ?

Thanks

The version of OUTLOOK EXPRESS 5 on my Toshiba Satellite 2805-S301 laptop has become corrupted and I need to reinstall it.

Unfortunately, the recovery disk that came with my laptop does not include this software.

I've gotten super frustrated trying to find it on the Microsoft site. I get all sorts of updates and patches but the only OUTLOOK EXPRESS 5 that comes up when I search their free downloads is a MAC version.

Does anyone have an idea where I can get a copy of this software online?

Many thanks

Hello guys!

I have a very strange problem with outlook express. I can send emails to any recipient if it doesn't have attachment and everything works fine, but when i try to send an email with attachment (small or big it doen't matter) it sends it, but it does not move it from the outbox folder to the sent folder. I thought it might be a Norton problem but i checked it out and everything is ok. Does anyone ever experienced anything similar?

I appreciate any help.

Situation: Outlook Express - Using Comcast email address.
Never had problems till a few months ago.
Problem is.... when I open my email, it tells me I got new mail (anywhere from 1-3 at a time), yet they are not showing up. Sometimes they do but usually they do not. Seems to be getting worse with time. Rare for anything to actually show up anymore. I do not seem to have a problem getting tons of junk mail but nothing much else.
I have even send myself emails for tests and some times they show up & other times they do not, even though it says new email messages.
Anyone got a clue as to where my emails are going and what I can do to correct this problem?
Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.
