Outlook Express refuses to open
#1
Today clicking on the icon does nothing OE will not open and the process in not running either . Please help.

Running the exe in the OE folder opens the application . The original shortcut points to a scheduled task :
C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "Outlook Express"

Why is this happening?

Thanks.

Dear Rafael,


I can open the program from my start menu OE icon with no problem except for the UAC prompt. I think I can live with it this way.

However if I would like to try the reinstall of OE can I install right over the present installation?


Thanks for the help.

I am having the same problem with Windows 10.

Outlook Express just refuses to open.
The only thing that fixes the problem temporarily is to reinstall.
But unfortunately after reinstall and a few successful opens OE then refuses to open again until I reinstall once more and so on.

Any ideas???

Check if your dbx files are ok. check if you have large dbx files (email folders) over 2gb and try to put old emails on archive folders.
Check if your antivirus is blocking any of oe installation files.
It would be helpfoul if you let us know what excactly happens when you try to run oe.
