    I created a Google Group, invited members, received their responses and published the list of members.  When I tried to send an e-mail to the group, I got a message that msoe.dll could not be initialized.  How to solve this?

    Sorry, but the info was so 'goop gobbly' for me.  Y at - it somewhere that I can download the msoe.dll?

    While you might be able to, two points...

    (1) not a safe idea.  Microsoft does not offer it more (they do not support OE6) and nowhere else - you take your chances.

    (2) most important - the file is not likely your problem.  Something else is probably causing this message.

    You may need to remove (I suggest renaming it to RECORDS. OLD personally) RECORDS. DBX file.  If Folders.dbx is damaged, OE often stops displaying the files to the existing *.dbx files, and sometimes OE will simply refuse to start. Also a bloated Folders.dbx can OE run very slowly. These two problems can be repaired by closing OE and deleting Folders.dbx. Understand although you will lose the mail directory structure, all the discussion lists and all synchronization options and this message rules will probably have to be edited

    There is another option where you could not lose the folder structure (will not be rebuilt) because you are going to import it from a BACKUP of everything what you do by renaming the whole store folder before you rebuild everything in OE - but I thought it would be more simple.

    C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\Identities\{...} \Microsoft\Outlook express

    Have you tried re-registering the DLL?  Have you tried a different Windows user account to ensure that it is not a problem with the existing Windows user profile?  Did you uninstall your antivirus programs and reinstalled without the mail feature to ensure that what is not interfere analysis?

    Method 1: You can reset the message storage location and which can allow you to run Windows Mail.

    Navigate to the following location:

    Mail C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
    Note: (The directory may be hidden, go to control panel |) Folder options | View and activate
    display of files and folders hidden and also uncheck the hide option
    extensions of known file types).
    Rename this directory from Windows Mail to Windows Mail old and then start
    Windows Mail and it will introduce a new message store in a new directory of Windows Mail.
    Note: If make you it work, then you can go to file | Import |
    Messages and point to the old directory.
    Method 2:
    You can try to remove the Windows Mail registry key and if
    It doesn't work, then try to delete the identity key.
    (a) click Start, type run and press enter
    (b) in the execution type search regedit and press enter
    (c) go to the following location:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail
    Note: Make sure WinMail is closed, right click on the key and
    Click on delete.
    Important: this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

  • No sound after Windows updates - don't Please Help!

    I just finished a full restore my system back to factory settings because I had no noise whatsoever.  After doing this, I had sound for a while, until some update has been installed and now I have not YET healthy.  It's extremely frustrating!  Given that the sound worked until one of the many updates has been installed, this leads me to believe that the update is the cause of the problem.  When I click on the sound tab, it shows that everything is working ok.  I tried everything I can think of to remedy to this problem.  I uninstalled, reinstalled and updated the driver for the sound.  It does not work.  I tried to use the restoration of the system to an earlier time and that doesn't work anymore (because there was not a lot of restore points because I had to complete my system restore.)  I don't know what to do to solve this problem.  I'd do another complete restore of my system, but I'm afraid that the updates will cause the same issue.  I'd appreciate any help!

  • No video playback after HP 64-bit of Windows reinstalled 7 - don't please help

    Hi I was wondering if someone could please help. I recently reinstalled W7 Home Premium 64-bit on my Acer Revo RL70 with graphics Radeon HD6320 after that my upgrade of the W10 went wobbly. Videos worked perfectly before on sites such as Youtube and Amazon Prime. Now, I just get a screen green and sometimes audio, sometimes not. I have uninstalled/reinstalled flash player. The browser is more recent IE11. Graphics drivers are later. One thing I noticed, is that there is now no Center control AMD (don't know if this is relevant). I'm not supremely PC read and write. I searched and refined over the last 2 days before finally coming on this forum I didn't really want to be a pain in the butt of someone. I am now at the point where I am naïve. Any expert pass would have an idea where I am going wrong? Thanks in advance. SY :)

    Update - has just installed Google Chrome and Youtube and other streaming sites seem to work ok. Woohoo! But my favorite browser is still IE (with the awesome Bing home page). If anyone knows if my Internet Explorer settings are to blame in some way? I honestly can't understand... :(

    Hi Simon,.

    With the publication of the description, I understand that you are having problems in playing videos on IE11 on your Windows 7 machine. I will certainly help you get this problem.

    d. when it start loading press pause.

    e. right click on the video.

    f. uncheck the box that says hardware acceleration.

    g. restart Internet Explorer.

    Try Method 2, if the problem persists

    Method 2 : Change the settings of Internet Explorer

    Follow the steps below:

    a. open Internet Explorer.

    b. go to tools > Internet Options.

    c. switch to the tab 'Advanced '.

    d. scroll down to the 'Multimédia' heading

    e. make sure that "Play sounds in web pages" is checked. Click on 'ok '.

    Restart Internet Explorer. A test to see if you can hear sounds online.

Reset Internet Explorer is not reversible, and all the previous settings are lost after reset.

  • USB ports don't work, help!

    It all started when I followed the advice to uninstall usb ports because I wanted to put back front usb midi or usb keyboard. But Windows 7 64 bit not acknowledged on the back usb port, so I uninstalled usb ports and now system always tells me it can't find the driver for any usb ports 7. Now Win can not install any usb device and the keyboard or the mouse wireless, I also tried another mouse. In the work of bios mouse and keyboard.

    Just don't tell me to install the new copy of Windows.

    I tried really many solutions: remote connection I tried, again uninstall usb and install asus motherboard drivers, no luck.

    He acknowledged I usb controller but always after I connect it will automatically try to install the mouse driver and it says "Unknown device" "device driver software was not properly install.

    Restore point has tried, without success because of the mistake, that he can't go back.

    Recovery Console has tried, all solutions of no repair no chance.

    Watched a lot of solutions on the net, could not find the right answer.

    Tried to delete usbstor and usb recording

    Open gpedit to prevent Windows to automatically search for driver software, no luck.

    I finally got from nearby ps2 mouse then tell me how to fix the usb ports!

    Maybe is something deeper in the Windows system or is it something so simple?

    Help, please.

    Yes, but I think it's good now, I knew it was something simple ridiculous, feeling so stupid now, I almost tried everything.

    Seems I was missing USB.inf in the Windows inf folder, but it was just half task. When I tried again to install the USB drivers in Device Manager that I manually navigate to composite usb and usb root hub driver automatically generated list so before Windows search and found nothing. Everything works now, so happy, tried 24 hours to solve this problem and on the end it's always something simple :)

    Thanks for trying to help, really appreciate it!
