Big Outlook Problem

While downloading my Windows 2000 Critical Updates, I downloaded something that has altered my Outlook. The Contacts screen jumps to the middle of the page and I Have to choose not only the recipienct, but the sender. I've hit the wrong key a couple of times and the e-mail goes out as By "MsA" on behalf of "MrX".
Can someone help me with this? Yes, I wrote to MS, to no avail.
Thanks.

Add/remove should have those updates.

In reply to: Big Outlook Problem

You could remove the latest items. Such can be reinstalled later.

As to Mr or MrsX, that's an application issue which you can dive into and look over your settings. The OS is not at play here.

Thanks, Bob. What application should I dive into?
Internet Explorer is "corrupted" as a theorectical mathematices professor said two days ago. There's still trouble. Does anyone have information on it? I'm using Firefox, but it has huge toolbars.
Thanks again,
Louise

Which application?

In reply to: Big Outloook Problem

The one you need to alter. I run Outlook 2000 but feel you need to dive in and look at your account settings to see why you have it setup the way it is.

As to Explorer, that's something I only use for Windows Update since pests ride into the machine with that. Here's some tools to find with Google to clean pests. EWIDO and HOUSECALL.

Right now I use SeaMonkey as the browser (terrible choice of name.)

I don't seee this being an OS issue but suggest you post in forums that deal with pests (Virus Forum), Browser (forum) and if Outlook, then Microsoft Office Forum.

Thanks. I didn't know you had so many forums. I do use Housecall sometimes - at least once a week.

Hi tomron,
''Good Morning Silicon Valley'' already says that the new IE update, IE7 is absolute junk. I've been using Firefox, but don't know what to do. If I had the money, I'd get a Mac without the XP, not for just this reason. I do some photography.
Thanks, I think that I'll wait it out.
BTW, our moderator suggested that I take this topic to the Office forum, etc....
A friend of mine is a theoretictical math professor at a local college and she's going nuts over this corrupted IE. She's a Linux user.

One of the nice things of IE ...

In reply to: Big Outlook Problem

is the ability to go back to the previous version if the current one is corrupted (from Config Panel>Add/Remove). Then reinstall the latest version from download.microsoft.com.

It's something that Firefox doesn't have. You need to save the Firefox-setup's yourself.

Words to live by. Someone on Microsoft suggested deleting a couple updates!
