OE6 - main info window blank

by abanerji / July 28, 2006 8:50 PM PDT

I am having a funny problem with my OE6 (under WinXP-SP2) since day before yesterday. When I load the program, the first page (main information window) comes blank, instead of the usual "OE for ... E-mail ... Newsgroups ...".
I daily update my AV protection (AVG).

I had posted this problem in MS Newsgroup (OE), and have been advised "to turn off e-mail scanning" (ref Is this a good advise, and would it solve my issue?

Shall be grateful to learn tips to correct this irritation.


Here are some info about my System :-

PC : Compaq Presario P4, 256 MB RAM
Windows version : XP-SP2
Other AV installed : Nil, but online scans done sometimes, especially trendmicro / kaspersky / a-squared
Other protection software installed : Nothing yet, but sometimes online scans done for malware. Planning to install ewido and kerio version 4
Firewall software installed : Apart from firewall in broadband modem provided by ISP, using windows firewall
Internet connection : Broadband. Also, falling back on dial-up when broadband is down.
Spam filter software installed : No

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
