Outlook Express Freezes

When I try to start my O.E 6 it starts and then freezes before it checks my mail, the only way I can get rid of it is to press ctrl/alt/del and cancel the operation. I am running Windows Me.

Are you running AVG 6?

Disable AVG (right click tray icon Shut Down AVG Control Centre - you may have to also terminate the AVGSERV9.exe too) Open OE. If this works then you have too much stuff in your OE folders. AVG scans all folders when OE is opened - to many big attachments can cause AVG to hang.

Clear out as many e-mails as you can. If you have attachments you wish to keep save the attachments to the hard drive and delete the messages. Delete all deleted items. Compact the folders (Tools, Options, Maintenance, Clean Up Now, Compact Now)

Close OE.

Start AVG and open OE - it should work....

if not - shout
