Outlook Express & MS Outlook 2003 restarts pc on recieving email
Posted on 2004-04-18
I originally used Microsoft Outlook Express to check my email (account from my ISP). When i open it, Outlook Express automatically downloads any incoming emails. Today when i try to check my email outlook express shows an email being recieved (not fully recieved) and restarts the pc. As i have Microsoft Office 2003 installed i thought i'd create the same account there and try downloading the email into that, again when recieving the email the PC restarts.
Could this be a virus within the email? Or something else? How can i get rid of this? Is there anyway of checking that particular email externally before it starts downloading onto my PC?
If someone could help me i'd be very greatful as i cant check my email anymore
