Every time allow the new updates to be installed I find I can't access Outlook Express. Is there anyway to stop the downloads They seem to start downloading all by themselves.

Simply turn off Automatic Update.

Control Panel/System/Automatic Updates

It may not be the same problem but I could not open the Inbox of OE after updating Windows (ME). Problem was resolved by compacting the dbx files (you will find the option under the "Files" menu). Apparently, deleting an e-mail does not totally remove it from the dbx file so the file become clogged with remnants of all the deleted messages.
