Messages not displaying in Outlook Express 6

Hi,

When I open OE 6 the top right frame functions as intended and I can see the new email come rolling in.  Well, in the lower frame (where the "preview" message usually displays when the corresponding subject is clicked from above) the messages aren't displaying.  Nothing.

Well, I do get an hourglass when I leave the mousey pointer over the display frame in question...but no message displays.

I can open the message, and look at the source to read the message but that seems to be something I don't enjoy.

If this helps...I use Win XP Pro and OE 6 version 6.00.2800.1123

Thanks for any assistance!

Chris Lackey

Hey that worked!  

But...

When I rebooted my PC I had the same problem and now my
notepad won't open...and I can't seem to get it open.

Any suggestions?  I use my notepad alot!

Many thanks!  Chris

P.S.  I don't know if this is related...but when I first noticed the Outlook problem I got this full-screen "popup" with tons of search links on it.  I'm sure it's tons of someone's affiliate links.  I couldn't get this window closed even after using the task manager.

AND...I've noticed this weird search panel that opens on the left side of my Internet Explorer.  It doesn't look like the one that opens when one clicks the IE search tab up top.  I think this is more of someone's affiliate links in this panel.  

Would this be related?

I'm glad it worked for you :)

Not to co-mingle PAQ's, but download Spybot - Search & Destroy.  Sounds like you need it.
