I initially posted a question about the problem I was having with M/S Outlook [the program would not open] and it was erroneously moved to the Anti-Virus Section. After posting a highjack this log etc... I was informed [quite rightly] that my problem had nothing to do with a virus or malware!
What it does have to do with, is a CONFLICT with the updated free version of the popular AdAware Program
I was about to reformat my C:\ drive in desperation... after I had tried to restore a previous version that had worked... when I opened AdAware it asked me if I would like to download and install the latest version [free]. I did so, and then it updated. From that point on the problem recurred!
I tried to open Microsoft Outlook Express and the Program Window would open only momentarily!
DISASTER. I rely on the calendar here and sync it to my PDA, but now I could not access it on my Desktop Computer!
As soon as I UNINSTALLED AdAware, the program behaved quite well again!
I tried to send Lavasoft an email about this problem because surely I am not the only one using Microsoft Outlook Express but could not locate a facility for contacting them via email with reference to a technical problem. So I sent them an email to their sales department.
You might want to circulate this bug to your fellow 'techies'.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
