Outlook Express on Win 98 PC

Upon starting Outlook express something happens in the background but the application does not start and gives no error/warning as to the probable cause.

Any suggestions where to start?

What does the blue notice tell you?

All your mails are simply in .dbx files on your hard disk. Waiting for you to solve this problem and read them again.

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?
