Can't open Deleted folder in OE 6

I have WINME and Outlook Express 6.0. OE worked fine until this morning. It
works OK except that when I click my Deleted folder my screen freezes up. My
mouse with the hour glass still works--but everything else freezes up. I
then have to reboot. I can delete--but I can't open the deleted folder to
delete any files. I then have to reboot.

Thanks

Tell me how can you see a folder that's been deleted? I make no wonder Windows is confused. I am.

The name of the folder that contains the DELETED MESSAGES is called """DELETED""".

lol, oh that was good.

As whatever is in the deleted folder is to be deleted.

Click, Tools, Options..., Maintenance, Store, copy the path. The go start, run and paste. Now click ok. Find the folder DELELTED and delete it.

Thanks Powerless--I emptied the folder and tried deleting files into it. Works fine as I can now open and read the deleted files.
