Outlook expess takes ages to load

  Pusherman 11:54 23 Mar 2003

When I try to open Outlook Express it takes over a minute to load before I can start using it. When it is open it is fine except when I try to access the address book. If I want to add a contact I click on the new contact button and it takes about 30 seconds for the box to appear where I can start entering name, address etc. I am using WinXP Pro, OE6. Is the address book corrupt and if so would deleting it, opening OE again (hopefully creating a new address book file) cure the problem? If so where is the file to delete? Thanks for any suggestions, Pusherman.

Try settings, Control Panel, Add/Delete programs, select Microsoft Outlook Express, and three options should be offered, Add, Delete or Repair, Select the Repair Option.
