OK,you can still access the net so you could use your isp's Netmail,I use this all the time as Outlook has
been uninstalled as another waste of resources and source of conflicts.Internet mail is faster with the
shortcuts & a lot more secure=no mail on the system almost eliminates the need for Anti Virus apps.
The changes made are system changes,so a System Restore ,if it has a convenient point,might be an
easy fix.Otherwise I think you have to delete your mail account and create a new one with the preferred
settings.Inetwiz can be used for this,Start/Run/Inetwiz in box/enter.Review alll the settings,keep the
good ones,alter the ones you don't recognise.I imagine the install of Sys Mech 6 is flawed,as a preliminary
scan takes 20 minits or so.Uninstalling and reinstalling is the procedure for sorting out glitches in any
software,keep the exe file on CD in case that dissappears along with Sys Mech.Use Belarc to retrieve all codes for your software & print as a record.Good Luck.*Everest home edition,available from this site is also good for system analysis,but don't think it has this feature any more.
