Outlook Express problem...

  movementz 11:59 07 Mar 2006

Hi, a friend of mine has a major problem with Outlook Express. He is a little untidy when it comes to emails and dont think has ever cleaned it up, so he has thousands of emails floating about in it, which makes it very very slow doing anything. To add to this, he decided to try and email someone a file that was around 250mb (I know, lol) now his outlook wont work. I've tried to delete the file and clean all his emails up so it works again, but the proggy keeps locking up. Is there anyway around it?

i'm guessing it might be xp? if so and you have the xp disk try sfc /scannow in case oe is corrupt in some way.
