Can you tell me what version you are using for Outlook?
Open Outlook and click on Help and then click on About
Also no problem with waiting till Saturday as tomorrow will be a busy one for everyone I'm sure.

OK this may be part of the problem since Outlook is now at version 8.
The first step is to try and get it updated to 8.
You would do this through Microsoft windows update page. I would suggest having ti do a scan and then look through the critical updates for the IE update.
Do not let it install all the updates until you list here what they are as we don't need any problems with the rest of the system.

I understand.

But, Microsoft updates were downloaded just a couple of days ago. I will go and see if I can update Outlook only and will get back with you.

I just Edited this post.

Here is a snapshot of the Scan that Windows did.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE !!!

I clean everything before I shut the PC down for the night or if the system is running sluggish.

Not a problem as i usually restart mine every couple of days. Now I have been running on my Linux OS so no need to restart.
Did cleaning the temps and cache help?
Happy Thanksgiving to you also and to 123Runner because I see he is here also :)

I believe that until you can increase you total memory you will have to clean the temps and the cache out every couple of days to keep everything running good online. Since that resolved that problem and now you know how to correct it we can concentrate on the other system starting on Saturday.

rshaffer:

How many times should I do a Defrag, and is it dangerous to do it every other day, if I need to??
