Your post makes me wonder, but you should know better.
Are you running updated AV software?
Updated malware/spyware scanners?
Have you tried a System Restore to a date prior to receiving that message?
You may also want to try a repair of IE and OE:
Add/Remove Programs > highlight Microsoft Internet explorer > click Add/Remove > select Repair > Next > OK.
Reboot when finished and test.
I recieved a message in outlook express (from a safe source) and for some reason everytime I make it active my computer freezes up. I tried to delete it and could not. I also tried to block the sender and remove all emails from sender but it still froze up. I finally just left it alone, but now when I try to block a sender my computer freezes up. Any ideas? I am not computer illeterate, but am not savy either! Thanks,
