Hello, i have a strange problem, all my email messages are blank, all the sent items and junk folders i can read them, but the inbox is blank when i open a message to read, the subject field is there, but just blank when i open it to read.

Also every web page i look at the writing is very faint, even my desk top items, don't know if the 2 are connected! any help appreciated

Hi thanks for your help but it did not help, i forget to mention i am using incredimail BTW if that makes any difference!

Hi, how big is your hdd? Is it nearly full? Maybe it needs a good clean out, have your used Disk Cleanup and degfrag in System Tools.

ps - I use Incredimail too, I doubt very much if this has anything to do with your problem.

hi, i only did a reformat last week so i have plenty free space at the moment, very strange indeed.

Hi again - quote only did a reformat last week unquote - were you having problems then? also have you had this latest problem from immediately after doing the reformat, or did everything work ok for a while? What os are you using?

i have been fine for all this week, this only occured tonight, i am running xp! Thanks

In that case, perhaps a System Restore, back a couple of days, would fix your problem.

I thought i resolved this issue the other night, but i was wrong, ive even tried installing thunderbird for my email now, and all i get is little red squares where the images should be, no pictures at all, i also keep getting " do you want to allow software such as Activex controls & plug ins to run on your computer YES or NO, if this is connected i dont know.
Any help appreciated
