View Full Version : Faulty install

30-03-2003, 12:32 PM

I recently installed XP home on my computer. Everything is fine... except:

With outlook express. When clicking on an embedded email address in explorer i get a message along the lines of 'your current email client has encountered an error'.
The computer slows right down and further investigation showed 100% CPU usage.
Not bad since it has a P4 2.53Ghz Intel chip, and the only application open is outlook express.

I tried reinstalling outlook express from CD. No luck.

Any ideas??

hi disorder,
are you able to try another email client?

try downloading mozilla, it comes with an email client (you may have it on a pcworld cover disc?)
if you have office, install that and use outlook (outlook is not equal to outlook express.. they are two totally different programs. just a FYI ;) )

or there are any number of other email clients out there, a quick google search will reveal a lot.. you'll want to find a win32 binary from a reputable place like sourceforge or freshmeat
