outlook express folders missing!

  big-g 16:47 02 Dec 2008

outlook express on my friends computer has lost all the inbox, drafts, deleted folders etc.
An orange searchbar for google has appeared in their place.
The bottom left hand corner shows that e-mails are being recieved but We cannot find out how to fix this.
I have tried the restore point and also unistalling and reinstalling outlook express.

Any Ideas Please ??

If you mean that the Folder List isn't showing then go to View, Layout, and put a tick in the box labelled 'Folder List'.

Thanks for that, but the contacts, folder bar, folder list status bar and toolbar are all ticked.
The strange thing is the search bar actually in place of the inbox etc??

Try this link posted by Stuartli in an earlier thread on this subject. click here. It looks like you need the Registry hack for Outlook Express. It cured the problem for the poster.
