1) When I first turn the computer on (it gets turned off every night) and log into OE for messages, it takes up to 15 - 20 minutes just to get 5 or 6 messages. If I close it and come back later anytime before turning the computer off for the night, they come in just fine. We have a high speed cable connection. I also have McAfee Security Center which was preinstalled on my computer.
2) Yesterday this was the first message I got when I logged on and the messages finally all come through, "Message could not be displayed "Outlook Express encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again." This note was displayed in all my messages. My computer has a 130 gig hard drive with well over 100 gig free. And it also has 2 gig of RAM.
I have noticed that if I log out of OE and log back in, I can get the messages. But if I leave OE on, eventually all my messages will have that same error again.
I keep the message folders pretty well cleaned out and compact the folders fairly regularly. I've done the cleanup of the disk and defragged. All this made no difference.
In addition to McAfee - the computer also has Windows Defender, Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyware Blaster, and Ad-Aware SE. Am I paranoid?? Yep - Ever since the WinFixer was somehow installed on another computer I had in 2005. You folks helped me with that problem. Anyway, these programs are updated and scans are run frequently.
Could McAfee be the problem? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am not a geek by any means, just a home user, and these kinds of problems really throw me. I need detailed instructions, please. BTW, I did check out the Microsoft website and couldn't find anything relevent there.
Thanks in advance.
