little purple arrow in Outlook

Normally when you reply or forward a message a little purple arrow appears on the message.  This has vanished in my case, and I have no idea of how to get it back.  Re-installing the program did not work.  

OS: winXP Home

Thanks in advance

Hey do this
open outlook and thne inbox
go to view --> current view --> customize current view
go to fields
select "icon" on the left and move it to the right
now close that small window
now in the inbox you should see that icon column.. ( you may want to scroll to the right to view that)
that should give you that icon

All the best

Yeah, its a clients system.  They told me over the phone that the stupid purple arrow is gone.  So I can't give feedback until later today as to weather or not the repair util works.  They need the purple arrow -- one computer many users in the office and it helps them to see weather or not the message has been forwarded already or whatever.

They had a bunch of virus is the only reason i was there.

They run Mcafee software for now.

I can't think of anything else......

I am having a similar issue with a user in my organization. The small envelope icons are there, sometimes the purple (reply) and blue (forward) arrows appear, and sometimes they do not.  In addition, if you open an email that has been forwarded, sometimes you will see the gray area towards the top that tells you when it was forwaded, whenver the arrow doesn't appear with the icon, that information doesn't show up as well.  Seems as though this problem is intermittent and I cannot replicate it, but the user proved their point by showing me a forwdaded email in the sent emails folder and showed me the original one in the inbox without the confirmation arrow attached to the envelope icon.  

Running MS Office 2007 Enterprise on an XP box, connected to Exchange Server.

Thanks for any help.
