Virus Infected .DBX File That I Need To Edit.How?!

  webber_man 02:50 27 Apr 2004

I have a problem with a certain folder within Outlook Express. The folder contains lots of emails a couple of which contain virus's. When i click on the folder to delete the offending emails OE freezes so i can't delete! I have removed the whole .dbx file - and now a new virus free version has now appeared. But the old .dbx file contains emails i want to keep and view.

Does anyone know how i can edit the .dbx file and delete the virus emails? Or no of any software i can use?

I have downloaded MailNavigator but you can save the .dbx file once the offending emails have been deleted.....unless im missing something!

Cheers for your help
