can;t send pictures from email

by rgolfher / November 7, 2008 5:18 AM PST

I have 6.0 Outlook Express.I have a Compaq Presario SR1111NX. I go to my pictures and then go to send to: and then this screen pops up and says..."Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Outlook requires 4.01 or greater. You can install Outlook Express by running IE5 Settup.exe from the IES folder located on my CD (I don't have a CD) or through the Windows Update Website". I went to the website and it didn't help me a bit.

I have stuff that I need in Microsoft Word that is not opening either. It asks for the letters and numbers I put it in when I got my computer. I do have Security Suite with AT&T. So, I don't know if this is blocking things getting in with the firewall or not.

Model# SR1111NX
Product# PC 130A-ABA
Serial# MXQ43704NH
Software Build 43NAheRFG3
Hardware Bonch ON4141110
Software BOM# NA43

I sent an email to Microsoft and what they were telling me to do was waaaaaaaaaaay over my head on paper so I just quit. I don;t know how to back up files either. I have a USB Store 'n' Go Drive with 2GB's but I am afrid to use it because I really don't know how. It would open up a lot of space on my computer if I could do that. Wouldn't it?

I have some knowledge of the computer and I can follow directions pretty good but my Outlook Express show 6.0 and that is greater than 4.1, that is outdated so can anyone help me? Thanks!
