Problems w/ Windows XP & Outlook Express 6

Every time I attempt to open OE6, it says that my memory is full, followed by a message that MSOE.DLL could not be initialized, OE may not be installed correctly. I've tried downloading IE6 to reinstall, but the setup stops when it detects a newer version on my CPU. Please help, as I'm about to set myself on fire.

I had a very similar problem a few weeks ago when I was running Windows 98SE. When I tried reinstalling I just got further and further into trouble and ended up unable to make any sense at all out of OE, nor could I open anything (websites) on the internet, so I assumed it was an IE problem and reinstalled W98. Still no luck, so after 2 weeks I took the plunge and upgraded to Windows XP, and it all seems (touch wood) to be working properly, except ...
each time I open OE my waiting emails keep downloading, and as there are so many of them I get a time out before they're done, only to reconnect and they start downloading from scratch again (or from June 6 for some reason) - can anyone help me please? I have 2 webmail accounts and so can access those emails at least, but I really like to get this sorted with OE as I have loads of rules set up and have used it for a long time ...

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?
