Hmm..ok. I did a "chkdsk" and no errors/problems found. Thanks for that tip.
Next, Although I do have an OE in my program files, it is empty. And OE is neither in my start/programs files ... completely gone from there.
When I do a search for Outlook Express, I get several folders / extensions to select from, (including a link to this very forum thread!
), but nothing that will actually "run" when I click on it, accept for my address book .exe file(s).
I tried to copy the search results to post here, but cannot or am unable to for some reason.
I am still able to use my Mailwasher Pro application to backdoor the OE program, which I always use first anyway as a spam filter. OE comes up just like it is supposed to ... runs perfectly fine. I have tried looking in all the tabs within that itself but see nothing to allow me to create a shortcut from it.
It must reside somewhere in my computer, if it still comes up. I'll try a more "vague" search, for maybe just "Outlook" and see if I get more hits.
Thanks again. I appreciate all ya'lls help.
