Outlook Express

by Mountainman / July 22, 2005 2:07 AM PDT

Outlook Express fails to launch. When I click on the icon a screen comes up asking me which account I want to run the program. When I click OK for my current user name, nothing happens. I looked at system resources and it does not show that OE has launched. The other option it allows is to log on as Adminstrator. I can access the program this way. How can I get OE to run as it did when I first got the computer?

I am using Windows XP Pro on a Dell Deminsion 8250. I have a 512 of RAM and 120 gig hard drive.

Restore your system back to a time when it worked properly.
If that doesn't help, post back here for other suggestions.
