When was the last time (if it has ever been done) you compacted Outlook Express?
Even though you don't mention being told it needs to be done the following is still relevant.
This article Why You Should Let Outlook Express Compact Messages When It Asks You
explains exactly what compacting messages is, and why you may be seeing that message. It's possible that you don't have a lot of kept mail; however, OE stores messages within a database, which tends to grow in size and degrade the perfomance of OE.
Even previously deleted messages that are removed from OE take up space in that database. Compacting your folders will REMOVE all the records that you have deleted. It may simply be a case of to many so called deleted messages are sitting somewhere on your computer, taking up drive space. This is explained in more detail in the section "What Does Compacting Messages Mean, and What Happens
To manually compact OE:
Open Outlook Express.
Click on the "File" menu in the Outlook Express window and then click on "Folder."
Click on the "Compact All Folders" option. The compacting process will start. Once it starts do not stop or interrupt it.Regarding Comcast:
if you see ANYTHING labeled Comcast or Xfinity in add remove get rid of it. Comcast does not have a stellar history when it comes to branded software. If you get an email about or stumble upon a Comcast program called Easy Solve
install it. You can read my review of Easy Solve HERE
. It's an unvarnished very negative review.
I do get an access error saying Comcast antispyware issue which I assumed because I deleted the junk on day 2. How do I find that crap to remove it?
is a component of CA Pest Patrol Real Time Protection
which is included in the Xfinity toolbar. I am going to assume you have uninstalled the toolbar and CA Pest Patrol Real Time Protection because no one gets the access violation message until they UNINSTALL the toolbar. (CA may have been uninstalled when the toolbar was. In the past it was listed as a separate program but that may not be the case now)
I am also going to assume this is the message you are getting:
Access Violation at Address 00423B70 in Module 'ComcastAntiSpy.exe' write of address 0000000D
To get rid of it
Try going to C:\Program Files\comcasttb. Delete the folder. That should get rid of the message. (if you don't see the folder there search your drive for it)
If you search it may be in a hidden folder. In that case download and install Everything Desktop Search (superior to Windows built in search function) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/everything-desktop-search/.
After install, open and let it populate. Then enter Comcast in the search field. You can delete if found by right clicking the name and choosing Delete. This is also a good way to see if there are other things by Comcast. Just make sure you check anything against Add Remove and uninstall first. You can also set hidden files and folder to show and then search.
I hope all this helps you. I realize there is a lot of information here but you are getting off easy. I could have gone on about how Comcast branded=junk.
I've searched but cannot find anything related to uninstalling the Wizard.
If you have any problems post in the Comcast Help Forums-which is where my Easy Solve review is. I can provide you with my canned speech about that forum if you need it.
