OUTLOOK EXPRESS "NO MATCHES FOUND" ERROR

Q: OUTLOOK EXPRESS "NO MATCHES FOUND" ERROR

Hi guys I work for an ISP and embarrassingly I am really stumped with this one. I have a customer using Outlook Express every he try's to compose an email OE try's to force him to create a contact and its annoying him. Every time he clicks send it comes up "no matches found" he is using XP I did a google search but only found information regarding this issue related to 98 and 95 none of the resolutions applied to XP.

Sadly my XP machine is out of action at the moment and I cant tinker with it, your help is much appreciated.

A: OUTLOOK EXPRESS "NO MATCHES FOUND" ERROR

After 4 years with no answer, I hope this helps someone else and saves the obligatory 1/2 hour searching dead posts with no helpful solution (in 2 minutes flat).

HERE'S HOW TO 'FIX' THE 'NO ADDRESS FOUND' ERROR: (1.) Open Address book and simply double click on the faulty contact entry. (2.) The 'Properties' window should pop up, now click on 'name' tab and add a dash after the 'last' name field entry. The 'display' field should reflect the additional dash after the name. (3.) Now click 'OK' to save changes then close the address book. (4.) Now create a new message and begin typing the contact name which should auto-fill the name showing a dash after name. Now it should work, BUT the extra dash may be seen by the recipient. TRY ADDING A DIFFERENT CHARACTER AFTER THE NAME IF DASH LOOKS FUNNY. GOOD LUCK ----dUCKBILL

ok, so I cleaned up all the old programs that I do not use any longer and deleted them from the control panel, add/remove programs, rebooted and about a day or so tried to open up outlook express. the program opened up but I can not "Expand" an email by double cliking it OR I can not even reply to an email as I get the attached screen shots of the error messages I recieve.

I did have this problem a while back but for the life of me I can not remember how it was corrected.

are you able to assist?

thank you

Whenever I click on a link in an email in Outlook Express 6, a Program Not Found dialog box opens up, and says Windows cannot find dustingforfingerprints (which I believe is some sort of blog thing one of my kids has), and it also says This program is needed for opening files of type 'URL: http protocol'. Then it prompts me to enter the location of dustingfingerprints. I guess it thinks this is the program to enter weblinks?

I am getting problem whenever I?m trying to send Email using Microsoft outlook express 2007. I am getting this error message ?Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Error Number: 0x800CCC0F? please help me in resolving this error.
 

A:Why is this error coming "Error Number: 0x800CCC0F" in Microsoft Outlook Express continuously?

Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. I assume that you?ve ruled these out.

The problem may also occur if you have an antivirus e-mail protection utility enabled, which checks the mail as it comes in from your Post Office Protocol (POP) server. To test this, disable the antivirus e-mail protection utility as well as the Windows Firewall.

Another likely cause is that there is a message that is either too large or corrupt in some manner. Logon to your servers Webmail site and delete the offending message there.

I'm get this error ("msoe.dll could not be loaded") when I try to start it. Does anyone have an idea about why this would happen? The dll does exist in the dir.
 

A:Outlook Express error "msoe.dll could not be ..."

Have you recently made any changes to your software? This behavior generally manifests itself after upgrading/downgrading/changing IE, OE, or installing certain service packs. It can also occur if you remove the Windows Address Boox (which OE requires).

Provide some additional details and I can point you to the appropriate solution for your situation.

Hi, just as the question title says, I am having a RunDLL error with the windows dll "streamci.dll".

I am getting this error while trying to install my Audio Drivers on my newly set up XP OS.

During the installation of XP, a couple of files were not copied properly.
because the CD was scratched up pretty badly, but I had no other copy of the CD, I had to just skip and hope windows installed, and was usable...

Are there any tools, that can scan your computer for missing windows DLL's and re-install them?
I have already tried downloading the file streamci.dll from the internet and installing it with

Code:
regsvr32 streamci.dll
in the command line, but I get the following error:
RegSvr32

"Streamci.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.
This file can not be registered."Click to expand...

Would downloading and re-installing SP2 from microsoft, possibly fix this problem?

Any Ideas?

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

Hi all.
I am getting a blue screen error of: stop: c0000135" and "winsrv was not found". It is not due to installing SP2 or any type of service pack. It happened after I used RegCure, i believe that it corrupted my registry and now it cannot find the winsrv. I was wondering how i would go on about fixing it. At the moment I am using a Linux Live CD and I have access to all my files on my hard drives including the windows partition, so if there is a way to revert to old registry settings through that please let me know.
FYI: I am using XP x64.

Im not sure if this will completely take care of the problem listed by the OP, bu when i searched Google for "disable outlook in firefox" that thread was the first thing that popped up. I have found out how to change the mailto: action in firefox (3.5.7) to stop outlook from opening.

Tools>options>applications
find "mailto" in content type column, and click the drop down box in the action column. There you can select from several mail clients including gmail.

This same procedure can be used to select which application opens most relivent file types.

hope this helps. and sorry if i dug up an old post for no reason.

A:Setting Up "Undisclosed Recipients" email group in Outlook Express 6

7 more replies
Answer Match 85.68%

When Outlook Express is opened, every e-mail that was sent "return reciept requested" causes Outlook Express to try to send a return receipt, which then fails resulting in an error message.

OE ignores all changes to the "return receipt" functions and continues to try to send them even before they are opened; when the mouse hovers over the particular e-mail.

A recent malware infection (which has been removed) caused a change in the registry and turned off Task Manager (which has been corrected). I suspect the problem with OE is also a registry issue, but cannot Google any information on this specific function or issue.

Two questions:

1. Is there a registry entry that controls the fuction of OE's "return receipt" function ?

2. If OE is uninstalled & reinstalled, will the stored e-mails be lost ?

An aggravating factor is that sbcglobal does not have a configuration setting to prevent duplicate e-mails from being downloaded and a recent change to the e-mail account by sbcglobal has resulted in the messages being duplicated 2 and 3 times in OE, and it is attempting to download another 4000 ( ! ) more, which will also all be duplicates.

This "return receipt" problem is preventing the ability to delete the duplicate & unwanted e-mails, so OE's functionality is reduced to nil.

Also, is there a static limit to the number of messages that OE can store & manage ?

The other day I realised I hadn't seen the Outlook Express 'compact messages' pop-up for some time. Sure enough, when I checked my recycle bin, the most recent bak files were at least 3 weeks old when I usually have to compact once a weekish. I did a manual compact and this worked ok. But, curious, I've been keeping an eye on the compact count check in the registry to see what happens when it reached the 100 mark. And it never reaches the 100 mark. The highest I've seen it is at 19, when suddenly it reverts to zero, seemingly of its own free will. Yesterday it was reading 5 and then when I checked an hour later expecting to see 7 or 8, it was reading 2! Needless to say, I don't touch anything in the registry, - just look.
I've been Googling this but I can't see any references to this particular behaviour anywhere. As I said, I can compact manually but I'd prefer not to have to. I am a bit worried that my OE might be corrupted. Any ideas anyone?
 

A:Outlook Express "Compact count check" behaving oddly.

Just when you think you've heard everything, I must say that's a new one on me.

Compacting is Identity specific, so I would think the problem would be in your current Identity (of course a lot of people would look at your problem as a solution to out of control compacting ).
You could try creating a new Identity and see if it does the same thing.
If the compacting works properly in the new one, Import your mail from the old Identity.

A:recovering lost email in outlook express after "compacting"

Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

I've moved your thread to Web and Email for more response

Have you tried to see if there are any bak files in the Recycle Bin:

Make sure Outlook Express is not running.
Open the Recycle Bin on your Windows Desktop .
Locate the ".bak" files corresponding to the Outlook Express folders you want to recover.
The ".bak" file will be named like the folder in Outlook Express.
To restore a folder called "Archive", look for "Archive.bak", for example.
Click on the ".bak" file with the right mouse button.
Select Restore from the menu.
Locate the file in Windows explorer and open the folder it's contained in.
Drag and drop the ".dbx" file corresponding to the Outlook Express folder you want to recover to your Desktop.
In the Outlook Express store folder, click on the ".bak" file to be recovered with the right mouse button.
Select Rename from the menu.
Change the ".bak" file extension to ".dbx".
If the file was called "Archive.bak", for example, make sure it is named "Archive.dbx" now.
Open Outlook Express.
If your emails have been recovered, delete the ".dbx" file you moved to the Desktop.

Also if you do not find the files in the above location search your computer for *.Bak

Hi, I just got a new laptop and I'm trying to export/import my address book from Outlook Express. When I import the addresses it only imports individual names and not "groups." It there a way to import groups as well? When I exported the address book from the old laptop I used the "text file (comma separated values)" option. Is this the right one to use?
Thanks.

A:"Outlook Express" Export/Import Address Book

Hi 2praisehim

No, it will not Export the Groups, you will need to recreate them.
The .csv file is the best backup, this format makes it available to Import to other programs.

As an alternative, you can make a copy of the .wab file and copy it over to the new computer.
To find the location of the original Address Book,
Open the Address Book in Outlook Express:
Tools > About Address Book
The directory will appear along with the name of the .wab file, which usually is the User Account name.wab

Navigate to that directory and copy the .wab file.
Copy the .wab file to the Desktop on the laptop,
find the location of the Address Book for Outlook Express,
Check this directory on the Laptop,
C:\Documents and Settings\User Account\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\User Account.wab
rename the .wab file to User Account.wab.old
Copy the backup .wab file to that directory and rename it to the same name as the current .wab file: User Account.wab

In Outlook Express, click the Address Book icon to open, the replaced Address Book should appear.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

This link has more information on the Address Book for Outlook Express:

My operating system is Windows XP and my email program is Outlook Express. It's always worked fine, until about two weeks ago, when I try to delete mail in my Inbox, they don't delete. When I click the "delete" button, it appears to mash down like it's supposed to, but nothing happens.

Hello eddie,

I am just not able to access Windows Update - haven't been able to for ages. Have posted about it on the site before. I get a "done" message "but with errors on page" and then an error script. Anyway, re security fixes not being accepted because "IE6 need to be installed". I do have IE 6, as I said, and here is the version:

Thanks for any light you can throw on this matter.

A:Latest "critical" Security patches: ... Oct 10: Outlook Express

Okay

It says:

The fix for this issue was included in Windows XP Service Pack 1, and in Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1.

Now, you have IE6 SP1:

6.00.2800.1106 Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (Windows XP SP1)

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q164539

So, it looks like you should have the update already. But, you should be able to check either via the Help again, or

To verify that the patch has been installed on the machine, open Internet Explorer, select Help, then select About Internet Explorer and confirm that Q328676 is listed in the Update Versions field. Alternatively, from Outlook Express select Help, then select About Outlook Express and confirm that the msoe.dll matches the version called out in Q328676.

I have started facing a strange problem recently. I re-installed windows 2000 and tried SP2 and ie6 updates but problem still persists.

On pressing key "L" anywhere, it launches outlook express as a side-effect. This is true even when some other application is open and in focus. The opened window shows inbox folder in place of default home screen of outlook express. I have noticed that in folders pane in outlook express, pressing L selects Local Folder and pressing it again selects Inbox. However, in this case the window with inbox is opened out of nowhere. I tried by deleting files from profile that may cause this (Like shortcuts) and also checked with a new user but in vain. One thing I have observed is that when I use on-screen keyboard, L key is working fine. This makes me think that it is not a shortcut recognized by explorer. I checked keyboard with other operating system in my dual-boot configuration and it is working fine there.

I am not able to work in windows 2000 because of this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA.

Last night a popup message from McAfee told me that Dell Security center was trying to access the internet. I was in the midst of downloading and reading email, and being a dummy, I gave one-time permission.

Soon afterward, I began to suspect a virus, as I received a virus notification popup and an email from my ISP re: a deleted virus. As I was deleting items from my inbox, Outlook Express froze. I tried restarting, and OE hangs on the inbox and hogs 96%+ system resources.

This morning, my ISP program showed an error and my Antivirus was corrupted. I did a system restore and redownloaded the antivirus, which solved my problem with getting on the 'net. I've scanned and come up with nothing and downloaded a special scan and remove tool (Stinger) from McAfee for the virus it warned me about yesterday....Sober, I think. But still, OE hangs up on the Inbox and I can't read or remove or access the toolbar. It says "no email selected."

IF ANYONE HAD EVER ENCOUNTERED THE FOLLOWING SITUATION, PLEASE GIVE ME A HAND. WILL APPRECIATE.

I use the "Outlook Express" for my email for years, no problem.
I had been using ISP for my email server and have my own email account set up, so far so good.
I had checked the box "delete from mail server after deleting from trash" and it works out just good. This is because, no need to log-on the mail server each time to clean up the read emails by hand, this way could release enough space for receiving email. Is because the ISP charge on over-quota space for emails, or just will block excess emails over the allowed space.
The problem started, when a friend told me could set the email folder away from the hard-drive C, I set it as per his suggestion. Then, the "auto-cleaning function" stopped performing.
I asked the ISP and was told because "Outlook Express" is designed by Mircosoft Inc. so they could not help.
Then, I set it back to the "defaulted folder", but the function could not be recovered.
This is quite annoying that I have to log-on the email server and clean up the emails daily by hand.

Running Outlook Express 6.0 on Windows 2000 all latest service packs and updates for both. Also installed is Outlook 2003.

Outlook is used for Office e-mail and can not be removed.

OE6 is used for personal e-mail accounts and News group access which is required for job support.

I have 2 e-mail accounts set up in OE6 and the "Leave a copy on server" checkbox is supposed to be checked all the time for both accounts. On average about once a month the box becomes unchecked on one or both accounts. This is a problem because quite often I will read and delete e-mails thinking that the e-mails will be retrieveable at home from the server. When I find that the e-mails are not on the server I can look back at the office and find that "leave a copy on server" check box is unchecked. I am the only one with access to my machine and those accounts. Has any one heard of this before? I was unable to come up with anything on the MS support knowledge base. and don't think that I should be charged $ to report a bug to Microsoft through their tech support.

I'm using Win XP Home and subscribe to Microsoft's automatic updates and kind of trust Bill's kids not to corrupt anything in the process.

So the other day after an update session (Service Pact 3 maybe? ) When I restarted the computer OE was totally unavailable, desktop icon gone, couldn't find in "Programs". So I am wondering what happened. I did run a "find" for .dbx files and all the OE file catagories I had before came up as still existing but I can't access them without the main program, at least with my limited knowledge.

Should I try to reinstall OE 6? And where do I find it? Or what. I have had this computer for 4 or 5 years and lots of mail is stored in the OE files. I have a secondary question, if I ever do recover my old OE can I transfer some of the files to Word or some other program that I want to archive instead of burdening OE with them.

I have accessed my current e-mails thru my ISP since the disappearnce of OE but would sure like to have the other archive files available again.

Any help is welcome, thanks

In the Add/Remove Window Components window, scroll down to Outlook Express.
If Outlook Express is checked, uncheck it.
Click Next then click Finish

Click the Add/Remove Window Components again, this time, place a check mark for Outlook Express.
Click Next then click Finish

A shortcut should now be on the Start menu, it will probably be at the end of the Start menu. From that shortcut, you can send it to the Desktop as a shortcut and drag the second shortcut to the Quick Launch bar, if desired.

David Einstein, San Francisco Chronicle "computer guru" has stated that when one "deletes" e-mail FROM the Deleted Items Folder, that instead of being finally deleted they go to a hidden subfolder. This is why, he states, periodically Outlook Express will put up a query-box asking whether one would like "old messages" to be compressed to save space. Einstein says that what actually is being asked, is for permission to delete, deleted items, finally and forever from the hidden deleted items folder.

That Einstein's statement is correct, is implied by the fact that un-intentionally deleted items, from the deleted items folder, can easily be restored. That "restore" comes, naturally, from the hidden subfolder.

OK....my query is: What is the directory and file-name of that hidden subfolder?

A:Outlook Express "deleted items" subfolder

Hi there. Welcome aboard.

This isn't a hidden folder. It's called Deleted Items. If you can't see it, click on View on the top bar, then click layout. Make sure that Folder list is checked. Click apply then OK. You should now see the deleted items folder on the left.

Hello: I have this problem quite often when downloading my email through Outlook Express. It always occurs at the start of the day, never during the day, although I do “Send/Receive” dozens of times a day.

My email appears to download normally, but then I get this error message:
<<Message number 1 could not be retrieved. Account: 'pop3.phonecoop.coop', Server: 'pop3.phonecoop.coop', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Can't open the message file - it's gone!', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800420CD>>>

Sometimes this message is followed by several more, beginning “Message number 2 could not be retrieved ...” and so on.

I know for sure of at least two recent emails which have been sent but which I’ve never received. Could this be why?

I have three questions:
1. What is this and can I fix it?
2. Can I stop it happening again?
3. Are the emails which couldn't be retrieved lost forever? Or is there any way I can read them, or at least find out who they came from, so I can ask for them to be re-sent?

(Actually, that’s about five questions, but what am I - a statistician?)

Many thanks for any help - what a great site this is.

Would like to know if anyone can tell me how backup the "Inbox" folder in Outlook Express/WinXP-HE? Tried everything, and obviously haven't tried something.

A:backup "Inbox" folder -Outlook Express

In XP, all the OE mail foldders are stored as .dbx files. Do a file search for inbox.dbx. Mine is in
C:\Documents and Settings\[my name]\Application Data\Identities\{742DC712-BE9D-4EF7-BA65-C0041FC3121A}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Inbox.dbx
Copy it somewhere - click on the copy to make sure it works.

Win XP Home Ed; Outlook Express 6.0. Have two identities. Yesterday one of the identities began to not allow moving unwanted messages to the Delete folder. Also could not move them to any other existing folder.

Each time try to delete or move or drag and drop get the following error message: "The selected message(s) could not be moved. An error has occurred."

Can delete emails by hitting the Shift-Delete keys but not desirable. Found that I can create a new folder and move or drag and drop to it and then delete the new folder but also not desirable.

Other identity functions normally.

Any ideas? TJThiel
 

A:Outlook Express "The selected messages could not be moved"

Sounds like the inbox may be getting corrupted.

Move the messages you want to keep into a folder that is not a subfolder of the Inbox just in case something goes wrong or you have to end up deleting the inbox file.

Then make sure hidden files and file extensions are showing (My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View tab, check "Show hidden files and folders," uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types" and "Hide protected operating system files).

Then in Outlook Express in the identity having the problem, go to Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder button. Once you know the exact location of the store folder that identity is using (there will be more than one with a long alphanumeric name so be sure you've got the exact name), close OE, navigate to it and delete the "folders.dbx" file. If that doesn't solve the problem, go back and delete the "inbox.dbx" file.

If you have to delete inbox.dbx, OE will open with a new, empty Inbox. Just move your saved messages back into it.

My Outlook Express opens and immediatly starts sending messages and won't recieve unless I hit stop and then click recieve. If I let it go on sending it takes forever then ends in error. I suppose that there must be a way to delete the outgoing message, whatever it may be, so Outlook won't keep trying to send it every time I open Outlook Express. If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it. My os is Windows xp home edition. Thanks, Mike.

If I restart my computer and then click on Outlook Express, it will automatically search my Inbox immediately, everytime.

I messed up! Sometime back, I tried some stuff I shoulda left alone! It happened months ago, and I forget the details (yeah, I know, if I forget what I messed up, or how, then how can I ask for or expect any help!). Short version: MSIE v6, running under Windows XP home edition SP1 (yeah, yeah) no longer sees the existence of Outlook Express v6, which is still, indeed, fully installed on my puter. Trouble is, I can't go to Tools/Internet Options/Programs and choose OE as my default e-mail reader, which I've been using for years now, since MSIE doesn't know it's there!

I've tried removing and reinstalling OE, from the Control Panel. The "remove" option takes only a fraction of second and then ends. Hard for me to believe it's really removing anything. So if it didn't, then reinstalling won't do anything cuz the "install" process, starting from one of MS's online sources of the original program, would only detect that OE is still on my hard drive, and would stop immediately. Indeed, that's what seems to happen, when I try reinstalling OE after trying the "remove" option in Control Panel.

I haven't tried reinstalling MSIE v6. And I sure don't want to have to go all the way back to something like format c: and using Dell's CDs to start all over again!

NAV is certainly part of the problem. When I just try launching OE, I get a NAV-oriented message about trying to create an empty folder... Read more

Hello tech helper(s),

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I am running XP on a vanilla PC, and have installed IE 7 and Outlook Express 6. I updated IE 7 just last night, to make sure that that is all in order.

All works except for one thing, and it's so frustrating! When I am in Outlook Express, with my Inbox populated by many messages, and I try to do a "Find Message" on that folder, all that happens is that I get a blank results window, regardless of what search criteria I select.

I searched the forum and found one relevant message from long ago, but the answer to that message is not helpful to me.

I've tried various antidotes. I could try to re-install Outlook Express, but doing so seems challenging. And I fear losing my Inbox messages altogether if I do that.

If you can give any advice, I'll appreciate that. In fact, I'm so desparate I'm willing to pay for some effective help.

Thank you,

Hi all

Our firm has recently upgraded from Outlook 2002 on XP SP1 to Outlook 2003 on XP SP2. We have noticed an increase in the number of "Not found" messages that people receive when trying to send an email/appointment containing an attachment(s). These attachments are inserted via 'Insert menu --> Item', then selecting another email.

I have searched MS Support website and google'd it, but no joy.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? Do you know what the fix is please?

Please help!

For the second time in recent months I have had a problem with lost messages. On Friday night when I attempted to shut down my PC, suddenly I received an onscreen message box indicating that my messages were being "compacted." I have Win XP Pro, Service Pack 2 and use Outlook Express.

Someone told me that Win XP Pro with SP 2 automaticallly gives a prompt after 100 closings of OE, asking if you want to compact your messages. The strange thing is that both times I've had this problem, I was never given a prompt. In other words, the compacting started on its own, which was completely unexpected. First I lost my Inbox messages; next, I lost my Sent Items. Is this normal? Is this an issue only with OE? If so, maybe I should change to another e-mail program.

In the past I used both Macallan and DBXtract in an attempt to retrieve my lost messages, but had not success with either program. Someone had given me instructions for these programs, but I had trouble following them. Still, I'm not sure if either of them would help retrieve my messages.

I'm wondering if what I'm experiencing is really "normal" or if it may perhaps be the result of a virus problem I had recently. I am totally confused by what is happening, and I have no clue yet as to how to either prevent or avoid it.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who might be able to help.

Thank you.

Hello all,

Recently, I have noticed that for most messages received, there is a paperclip icon in the Inbox which would indicate that there is an attachment to the message.

When I open the message, there are no attachments.

All I have done recently is uninstall Nortons Internet Security and install AVG Free antivirus and Windows defender. I had also installed and uninstalled Zone Alarm and Ewido Antispyware before finishing up with my AVG and Defender configuration.

Any help or explanation as to why this is happening would be appreciated.

I have used Outlook Express for several years without any major complaints.

Now, however, for whatever reason, next to certain messages I find small "plus sign" boxes which allow me to expand and collapse conversations/threads, like in Newsgroups. For my e-mail set-up, I really don't care to have this function. I find it both disruptive and confusing. I liked it much better the way it was before when all my incoming messages appeared individually and precisely in chronological order. The way things are now, I often find it necessary to go back and click on "plus signs" to find new messages hidden underneath. In one thread I found a message which didn't even belong in that particular thread.

Using Outlook Express Tools I at least figured out how to automatically expand conversations rather than have them collapsed. I don't believe this solved my problem, though. I would like to get rid of the "plus signs" altogether.

Could someone please tell me how to return to the simpler set-up I once had?

Thank you very much.

Does anyone know what it means when messages in the Sent Mail folder in Outlook Express have a header line "This message is being Watched"? This appears in a beige bar above the "From" line in the email. All my emails prior to 12/2/01 show this message, and none after that date show it -- and of course the Microsoft help site provided absolutely no information.

From a newsgroup thread:

"From outlook express' help:

In both mail and news, you can watch a conversation that is of particular

In your Inbox or newsgroup message list, select the conversation you wish to

If your message list's Watch/Ignore column is turned on, the watch icon

MS Office will then run some scans and after about 5 minutes, the issue is corrected. Works very nicely.

Hello, TSG!

Just yesterday I was using the computer normally until I got a Blue Screen. Getting a blue screen is usually something normal that occurs to my every so often, so I didn't mind it and rebooted the computer normally. However, I got two more blue screens within the next hour. The 3rd time rebooting, my computer starts to act strange as if it had a virus. Upon powering up the monitor would just display a black screen with two lines about something --- which I don't remember, sorry --- and stayed like that unless I plugged out the power cord or held on the power button to shut down. Then when after a few tries it boots and displays a message "Floppy Disk Failure" and "Drive 1 not found: Serial ATA, SATA-1" (and the same message for Drives 2 and 3) show up. Also it asks me to continue loading by pressing the F1 Key.

When Windows loads the first time, it displays a message saying a bunch of hardware has just been installed and ready for use. Also, my internal clock resetted itself back to Monday, November 07, 2005 (Which, if I recall, is the date when I got the computer) and my speakers do not work.

In Outlook Express, under Tools, there is a category "Synchronize All". Often times, I find it necessary to click on "Synchronize All" to get "all" of my Outlook Express e-mail. What comes down --sometimes-- in Outlook Express is not "all" of my e-mail. I know this because I am using Mailwasher Pro and it shows additional mail prior to downloading to Outlook Express. So I click on "Synchronize All" in Outlook Express and the balance of the mail appears. I have only one mail account. So I don'tunderstand. Perhaps someone in this forum can speak to this ... and clarify exactly what "Synchronize All" means.

Recently, after being on for much of the day where she has used OE a time or two, OE will hang. Clicking on the shortcut or going to the program file and trying to open the application results in not activity. Checking the Task Manager shows that OE is not a running application.

Once in a while, a window appears saying, "An Unknown Error has occured".

The only way to resolve the problem so far is to reboot the computer, which is a bit aggrevating.

I recently started having a very strange problem w/my outlook express (v6). I have 2 identities and it is only affecting one of these identities, the other identity is problem-free.

Here is the problem:

When I send an email, the send/receive box that pops up tells me that i have an error ("Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks, etc"). However, the area under the "errors" tab is blank. The message which I was trying to send then remains in the outbox. The message is then resent whenever Outlook sends/receives mail. I have to move the item from the Outbox to "Deleted Items" or "Drafts" to stop outlook from constantly resending the message. I cannot move the message to "sent items," if i try to do so it tells me that an error has occurred.

Does anyone have any idea why it would start doing this?

To make matters more confusing, the problem first started only w/messages that had attachments, then every message, and yesterday, 3 or 4 messages actually didn't have this problem ( i send dozens to hundreds of messages a day), but now it's happening to every message again.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

A:W2K: "ljjjjij.dll" causing "Explorer.exe - Entry Point Not Found"

Hello,

last November I installed and ran the Gov't Malware Program by Amnesty Int. called "Detekt".
It found that my PC was infected, with "Ghost": Unfortunately, this program only finds spyware/malware but does not offer any removal tools. I tried running Avast and CCleaner but they were not able to find anything on my Computer, Detekt would still find "Ghost".

Later in 2014 I installed a new Avira Anti Vir program (instead of Avast whih I used before) plus Malwarebytes Anti Malware. All programs were updated. Neither one of these three programs did find anything at the time (to the end of 2014).
Now today (Jan. 5, 2015) I updated and used Malwarebytes and it found "Babylon.A" (a kind of "Ghost", if I understand right) in the "Unlocker" (1.9.2) program files.It was put into quarantine by MWB.

I will try to do as you describe the process, and first post the log files that MWB put out today. My external Hard Disc Drive was connected during the scans.

Please let me know if my Computer is safe now, and if there are any safety measures to take (like , not using old USB sticks, or the like)

Thank you for your help!

QuestionGhost
 

A:"Detekt" found "Ghost"_ MWB removed Babylon from Unlocker

I do not recall exactly when or why I installed Unlocker (1.9.2), or where I got it from, but I must have downloaded and installed it around Nov 2014 (last run Nov 24, 2014)

My problem started 08/21/07 and I've been hoping someone could look at this. I apparently caught a Trojan and can't get rid of it.

This trojan has screwed up my explorer file. I'm unable to get a display of my DeskTop (blue screen only). Reduced to using TaskMgr to run iexplore to access internet and navigate. Ran explorer and received the following error:

explorer.exe - Entry Point Not Found

(X) The procedure entry point PrintWindow cound not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll.

[OK] Click to expand...

I can muddle around with TaskMgr, but I no longer have my display for desktop or menu bar (i.e., Start and such).

Had a security 'expert' instruct me to rename my USER32.DLL to USER32.OLD which hosed my computer (could not boot up). Had to find my OS disk to get back in and rename the file back so I can get back to where I was.

Hi All,

I'm having some issues with WinDBG and a crash dump analysis for a Windows Phone 10, so I hope someone could answer this question here.


Background information:
Recently I bought a brand new Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM phone which keeps restarting over and over on a very random basis. After reading several threads it turns out that many people are suffering from the same issue and generic remediation steps are not working
at all. This includes using Windows Device Recovery Tool, turning off certain features such as WiFi & Bluetooth, SD card usage, etc.
After troubleshooting this issue for a while I decided to get on with Field Medic application which clearly indicated a 000000F9 crash. Unfortunately this didn't tell anything too specific so I captured a minidump from the phone and went straight to WinDBG
for further analysis.

Now my issue is that although I can load the crashdump into WinDBG, I'm unable to get the appropriate symbol files as WinDBG is constantly complaining about not finding the required files. I've changed the required sympaths as necessary so I've been trying
to use the official MS online repositories but WinDBG just doesn't want to cooperate and get the files. Unfortunately I couldn't find an offline symbols repository for Windows Phone 10 and therefore I'm stuck with the analysis. The symbols would be required
in order to nail down the root cause making the 0000009F crashes. So far I can only see that this is possibly a driver re... Read more

I have a need to run two instances of Outlook on my laptops with two different profiles. I found this tool called ExtraOutlook v1.3, unzipped it and installed it on one of my laptops running Windows 7 Home Premium and Outlook 2010 and was able to get it to work - I can run two instances of Outlook with two separate profiles.

But on the laptop running Windows 7 Professional with Outlook 2010, I get the error "Function not found in Import Table".

I followed the same steps but I am getting an error. Can anyone provide an insight as to what might be causing the error and how to fix it?

I switched my Fujjitsu-Siemens Amilo li-1718 the other day and was met with the dreaded 'operating system not found' message.

I haven't changed anything big recently, and it's more or less been working fine for a long time now.

I had, however, just had it in a bag and moved it across town, so after reading up I thought maybe something might have come loose inside. But I also read that it could be a BIOS problem, and after going in there I noticed that under 'hard drive' in 'main' it said 'None.' Changing it to auto or user didn't seem to make much difference as it still wouldn't load and would always revert back to none.

However, I also read that if the computer keeps resetting itself to an arbitrary time and date that it can be symptomatic of a CMOS problem... my computer had been doing this occasionally for a month or two before this happened.

I also tried making a windows vista recovery CD, and tried to boot off that, but still got the same 'Operating System Not Found...' message.

Basically, I want to make sure i've tried everything before I open the case and go poking around inside, as I'd really have no idea what i'm doing, but i'm hoping it's just a loose wire that will be pretty self-evident when I open it up.

Any ideas?

Hi,

After trying to upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 on my Inspiron 7000, my Windows install would freeze during the start up process - the Dell logo would appear and the loading icon would stop. I had Linux installed on a separate partition so I went into the BIOS and moved Ubuntu ahead of Windows - this was the mistake. After exiting, I get the error message "Operation System not found". When I start up, I see the options F2 Setup and F12 Boot Options, however I cannot access either - the text will become bolded to show that I have selected it but I always get brought to the same screen which says "Operation System not found".
Any ideas on how to proceed? I don't mind losing the files and folders on the device, I just want to be able to use the laptop again.

Thanks.

A:"Operation System not found" error message on Inspiron 7000

It looks like the MBR or GPT that tells the BIOS/UEFI where to start booting has been messed up.  If you created restore media before upgrading to Windows 10, I'd use that and start all over.  If not, you can go here to download or order your recovery media.

Just recently, in the past three or four day or so, I have been receiving the following error when, in explorer, I attempt to drag a folder from one directory to another, or when I attempt to rename a folder, either inline or through the properties dialog:


Code:
"Item not found"

Could not find this item

This is no longer located in [original directory]. Verify the item's location and try again.

[name of folder I'm trying to move]
Date created: [etc.]

Try again Cancel
When I press the "Try Again" button, the folder and its contents move where they're supposed to, without issue. Notably, I receive a new error for every subfolder, and although there is a "do this for the next x items" checkbox available, it doesn't work.

So when moving an individual folder with no subfolders or when renaming a folder, it's a minor annoyance. When moving, say, a 100gb music folder, containing hundreds of subfolders, between drives, it's a significant nuisance.

I have no such issue when preforming the comparable actions with "MOVE" in the command prompt, by the way.

Anyone know anything about this? Your ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm running Windows 7, recently updated, on a Thinkpad T400, if that helps.

A:Error ("Item not found") when moving/renaming folder in explorer

Where are you moving the files to which directory, which drive? How much space is lift on the drive you are moving the files to? Try copying the files then pasting them or drag and drop them. Also try moving the files in chunks not in big segments of 10GB or more. Perform a CHKDSK /F on all drives.
Go to "Start" type in CMD located CMD.exe right click on CMD.exe then select "Run As Administrator" at the command prompt type in then hit enter...


Code:
CHKDSK /F
type in Y for yes then manually reboot.

Hi there,

I don't usually have virus problems but yesterday managed to get the super-annoying "Vista Guardian 2010" all over my computer. I followed some tips and ran AVG, and Spybot and it seemed to have got rid of it.

hxxp://www.myantispyware.com/2010/01/28/how-to-remove-vista-antispyware-2010-vista-antivirus-2010-vista-guardian/ - that's the actual instructions I followed.

Thing is, now I've got this intensely annoying issue with my Firefox link (and IE link, if I choose for that to be there) on start menu. It just doesn't work, and every time I click I just get an error message saying "explorer.exe application not found" then it asks me if I want to remove the non-working link. I tried setting the associations again in Default Program and have searched the internet for tips, but can't seem to beat it. Also tried some an .exe fix file but no luck. As far as I can tell, nothing else is affected, but I don't have a clue if it's still infected or my laptop is just wounded now.

Any help would be much appreciated. Oh, and I don't have access to a boot disk or Windows disc.

Hi everyone

When trying to run a backup through the Windows Backup & Restore interface, I get this error:





Quote:
Windows could not disable the automatic backup job for the following reason:

Element not found. (0x80070490)

Try again.


My backup is setup specifically to run on demand, and I have disabled the option of automatic backups. This error pops up EVERY time I try to run a backup, it's not just a one-off. However, after pressing OK to this error (is appears twice, one after the other), Windows does its thing and gets on with the backup.

So I think there might be a problem with Windows Backup disabling its scheduled backup in the Task Scheduler, since it was previously told to backup on a schedule. So I opened Task Scheduler to see what I could find, and as soon as the program opens I'm greeted with the following error message:





Quote:
The selected task "{0}" no longer exists. To see current tasks, click Refresh.


When I press OK to that error message and press Refresh to reload the list of current tasks, it says in the status area: "Reading Data Failed".

Now, I'm not sure what's up with this. I presume it's something to do with Task Scheduler, since that's not working either. I'm thinking it's going to be something really simple like a Service isn't running that should be...

Having said that, the "Task Scheduler" service is set for automatic start and is currently running... I... Read more

A:Windows Backup error: "Element not found. (0x80070490)"

I've just tried the solution from http://www.sevenforums.com/performance-maintenance/10915-odd-task-scheduler-issues.html and rebooted.

Upon opening Task Scheduler straight after the reboot, it runs correctly as expected, with no errors.

When I open Windows Backup, it tells me that there's no backup set up (but there previously was). So I entered my backup configuration again, and disabled the backup schedule. Again, I got the same error message "Element not found". After having done this, opening Task Scheduler results in error messages again!

Windows Disk Defragmenter was also mentioned as a possible cause for the Task Scheduler errors. So I opened that after having cleared the TaskCache registry folder, and I'm told that another program was used to schedule the Defragmenter and I should click a button to remove the settings.

It looks like the 'solution' mentioned above has helped a lot of people. Unfortunately it doesn't do much for me, since as soon as Task Scheduler is fixed it gets broken again.... Aaah! :-(

Does anybody have any other suggestions? I'd be most appreciative.

Hello
I've been having a problem with my browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE) over the past few weeks, in which every 20 minutes or so they will stop working and all webpages will give me a "server not found" message. However my internet connection itself seems to continue working with all other programs, and simply disabling and re-enabling (via the troubleshooter) my local area connection fixes the problem, for another 20 minutes or so.

The problem seems to be exclusive to my main hard drive and did not persist when I booted from a separate one and used it for an hour or so.

I'm a bit at a loss, and at the moment am treating the problem as a potential virus or malware.

First post so I apologize in advance if I'm missing something obvious or am in the wrong place.

I'm running Win 7 (32bit) HP SP1. I'm having the same problem whether using IE8 or IE9.

If I set IE as my default browser I get an "Application not found" error whenever I click on a link which should open in a browser. Other browsers work just fine.

Makes no matter whether I use the IE > Tools > Internet Options to set IE as the default browser or Control Panel > Set Default programs I get the same error.
I am unable to use Default Programs > Set Associations to make IE default for HTTP, etc. because the IE icon is missing from the selection screens.

I tend to believe that restoring this icon is part of fixing the problem.

Google searches have led me to many suggested fixes (registry mods, etc.) but nothing has helped.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem?

Dave

A:IE browser generates "Application not found" error if set as default.

Dave, welcome to Sevenforums!

Try reseting IE. It will ask if you want to keep your settings: go to Internet options, click the Advanced tab, and click reset down at the bottom

Hi,

We have a script file that excutes following code snippet:-

var gOledbProvider = "Exoledb.Datasource"
//var gOledbProvider = "MSDAIPP.DSO"

var oCon = CreateCOMObject("ADODB.Connection");
oCon.ConnectionString = sURL;
oCon.Provider = gOledbProvider;
oCon.Open( sURL );

The URL is valid, can be browsed successfully from IE. The last line throws an error for either of the providers. Error is as follows:-

"Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed" Error -2146824582

This piece of code excutes successfully if exchange is hosted on Windows 2008 and application using above code is also hosted on WIndows 2008.

However, if Exchange is hosted on Windows 2003 and application using above code is also hosted on Windows 2008 (64 bit), it fails with above error. Tried with both Office 2003 and Office 2007 in this case.

To add up, this code snippet is in a script file, no IIS required.

A quick solution is really appreciated.

For months, this keeps popping up:
"FOUND NEW HARDWARE - UNKNOWN DEVICE.

Found driver software for your device, but encountered error
while attemtping to install it.

Microsoft 6to4 Adapter

*Insufficient system resources exists to
complete the requested service.

If you know the manufacturer of your device, visit its website and
check the support section for the driver software."
..........
I keep trying to locate it. The attempt is always unsuccessful and I dont know what this adapter is. It keeps trying to find it and I can't stop it, even though it
asks me to stop asking, it never does.

Pls Help! Tips, advice, suggestions to solve this. Thank you.

A:HELP! Pop-up: "Found driver Software, but encountered ERROR" keeps popping up

Hi Milly,

6to4 is a technology related to IPv6 and IPv4 communication. If you want to know more about that, please refer to the following document that focuses on it:

Configuring and Deploying IPv6 on Windows Vista
Download details: Configuring and Deploying IPv6 on Windows Vista

In short, Microsoft 6to4 Adapter is used for communication in mixed environment including both IPv4 and IPv6. *Very* few people are using IPv6 at this point. That will no doubt change in the future when all the IPv4 addresses are used up, but right now all the websites you use and all your network apps know about IPv4, not IPv6. So you're not going to have to worry about IPv6 for quite a while yet.

The simplest solution is to go into Device Manager (Start ? Run ? Type devmgmt.msc and click OK).

In Device Manager, click View and select Show hidden devices ? expand Network Adapters ? right-click on 6TO4 adapter and click on disable.

Reboot your computer.

Please report the results, one way or another.

Ed

Being as most people who write threads about their problems tend to leave out information which could be useful for those who are trying to help out, I'll try to write a post that includes what you need and then some instead of too little..

Hardware Specs

ASUS CUV 4X-E, Celeron/PIII, ATX (Motherboard)
Intel Pentium III 1 GHz Coppermine (CPU)
Radeon 9600SE (Graphics Card) - Not sure of the "mark" of this one..PowerColor or ASUS

Background Story
Well, about 3 months ago, I exchanged my old and outdated GeForce 2 GTS Graphics Card with the new and better (I thought) Radeon. Being the CS-gamer I was back then, I did this in hope of increasing my FPS-count (not a lot, just a little), but was fairly disappointed when I experienced an all-time record low FPS of 5-10 (no matter what was going on).. Also, being lazy, I decided to take this as a chance to lay off the CS-scene for some time, perhaps focusing on some other aspects of gaming and general usage of the computer.. It was just now, today, that I got the craving for fragging again?

After doing some reading, I realized that I was not the only one with problems regarding Counter-Strike 1.6, ATI and FPS. After some more reading, I decided to downgrade to Catalyst 3.6. Since I'm not the most experienced person when it comes to messing around with drivers, hardware-settings, software-this and that, I read around some more and went with the information given in this thread. I followed the advice writ... Read more

A:Radeon 9600SE - "INF Error - Video driver not found"

One hint: Check whether IT IS Radeon MOBILITY!

I just met the same problem and tried many ways and can not solve it.
Later when I happened to check the product specification from its vendor page, I found out that it is a Mobility Radeon display card.
There are two ways to get mobility radeon to work on PC:
1. download official mobility radeon driver, eg, 4.12
2. get the latest ati catalyst, and use a very cute little tool to make it work for mobility radeon. The tool's name is ati dhmod. you can search google for download or contact [email protected]

I have had my system up and running with Win7 for at least four or five months. I have four drives in an mATX case. Yesterday, while it was idle, I saw it flash a BSOD and then rebooted. when it restated it displayed the following Error: "No active partition found. Reboot your computer." Which I did several times to no avail. Next, I used the install disk to try to "repair" the partition...seven or ten times, no luck. Also, no drives were listed in the window at repair prompt. So, I pulled all the cables on all the drives but the one containing the system and voilas! here I am writing to you without issue and without three of my drives. I have two other sata drives in addition to my system sata drive. one IDE drive on the system. I've had no issues with any of them until yesterday.

MOBO going? Power-supply going? any ideas about why now?

thanks in advance for any ideas and my apologies if I have not followed all the correct protocols. This is my first time posting to a forum about my system.

A:Multiple drives cause "no active partition found" error

Hi Ratchethead,

Welcome aboard.

I would presume that one of your other drives that could have gone corrupt is causing the problem.

You should now try connecting one drive at a time and check, till you get the problem drive.

Just got a new Iphone and trying to install Itunes.It does ok until it tried to install quicktime and then gives the " A Newer version of QT is already installed" err and then stops the install.

I've done all the usual cleanup and deleted all known registry locations for QT,but there must be another registry entry in an odd/unknown location that stops the install.

Any ideas?

Thanks

A:Dreaded "Newer version of Quicktime is found" error

Please go Here and download Revo Uninstaller. The free version is fine.

Then got o the Apple website and download the iTunes and Quicktime package

I was trying to play Neverwinter Nights 2 on my laptop. The install went fine, but when i tried to play the game i gave me the error message "no direct3d compatible device found". I updated direct X and the driver for the video adapter. My best guess is that i need to get a better graphics card to get it to work. I looked around a little, and from what i hear the best choice for this laptop is to get a Nvidia geforce go 7400. the problem with that however, is that i have yet to find anybody who actually has one. I checked newegg, amazon, ebay, and of course with Nvidia themselves, but the only one i've found is already installed in a laptop.
Specs:
My computer is a dell xps 1210 running windows 7 pro. The processor is a Intel core 2 duo T5600 1.83GHz. The video is onboard (Mobile Intel 945 Express Chip Set Family). It has 2 GB of RAM. Let me know if there is any other information about my specs you need to help me with this. Any help or advice you can offer would be appreciated.
 

A:Error message "no direct3d compatible device found"

Double check your laptop manual but when I checked it, I saw no way to add or change the graphics. You will have to live with what you have.

Hey all, this came up as a side effect during the epic battle I've been having with my computer all day, but I can't tell what's wrong or what it's effecting. When I boot up the following appears on screen, at the first screen I see:

"Detecting Primary Master - Maxtor 98196H8
Detecting Primary Slave - None
Detecting Secondary Master - Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-103
Detecting Secondary Slave - ASUS CD-S400/A

Harware manager found an error. Enter power setup menu for details...

Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter setup"

Now I'm not very familiar with that setup screen so this is where I need help. How do I determine what is wrong and what needs to be changed? As far as I can tell everything is working on my computer. I just formatted my C drive and reinstalled XP from CD so I know the CD drive works. My C: and D: drives are visible and accessible and my DVD-RW drive can read data if I put a CD into it (I haven't tried burning anything yet as I'm installing SP2 and other updates now)...

Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks a lot
EDIT: I just went inside and dug around some more without changing anything and noticed something in red: the power fan RPM I opened the case earlier today to make sure my video card was seated right and lifted up the power supply. Is it possible I unplugged its fan or something? Is this fixable?
 

A:Solved: "Hardware manager found an error..." during boot

Thats probably the error, its likely detecting that the power supply fan is not working. Check to see if it came unplugged (its probably plugged into the motherboard, or should be, to enable it to be monitored).

I receive this error regardless of the browser I'm using but I am connected to the internet; I can connect to steam and update games for example. The issue is tied solely to the inability to load websites. Mine is the only computer on the network that is displaying the issue.

Any help resolving the problem would be appreciated.

A:Receive "Server Not Found" error when trying to load websites.

You should run the following two commands one at a time, type them into an elevated command prompt, hit enter after each one.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)

I have to PC's that belong to the same homegroup. When I go to explorer, there is a delay before the other PC shows up and yet another delay when I select to browse that PC. If I close and go back I'll often get this error code and then there are time when I get the code on the first try. These PCs are running Windows 8.1 Pro and powered on 100% of the time. I noticed this nonsense while on Windows 7 as well.

A:Error code 0x80070035 "The Network path was not found"

I see the same types of problem with 8.1, some lag when I open the Library on Homegroup machines.

That error message is what you get when access fails but there are a million other reasons why it's failing.

These types of problems aren't easy to track down and you really need to start with the basics and work your way up.
