Hi, i had a 'small' problem click here problem with getting on the net turned out to be the hub, a Linksys,went weird on me....

But i can't blame the hub for the missing email settings in OE, their gone , like nothing...

I had two mail address set up, and had been getting and sending mail with no problem, and now if i go to the account's there is nothing, a big blank...

I did a full scan with NAV fully updated, found nothing....

Im at a comlete loss as to what went on..

Any ideas?

My first thought would be to do a system restore (if I was on XP).

I could just hide under a rug for awhile and it would all go away.....

Can't do that...

Chris, i did a System restore, yup im on XP, the thing is i just copped the 'problem'.....

I set up the wireless network on friday last, and then later set up the mail, when on monday i did the system restore, cos the whole thing went mad ,it backed up to before i set up the mail..

So that is why my mail settings went, adds up dont it......

There you go,a reason for everythig!!!!

Thanks Chris for all you help..

That if we keep this up a certain person with the initials FE might pull - so I'll leave the potentially useful thread in!

I did this the other day - except it a bit of the other way round.

Something was messing with my click-able links under User Accounts on XP but didn't affect the Admin accounts - links just didn't work.

EVENTUALLY found out it was Star Downloader interfering. How did i find out? Well i swore that the only change i made was installing newer mouse drivers. It wasn't until i used GoBack to go back to before the drivers where installed that i noticed a setup program in my download folder with the drivers.

I tested the links - they worked.

Installed Star Downloader (the mystery setup program) and the links stopped working... I'd forgotten all about installing it!!!
