Then locate the antivirus interference (there are a number of antivirus which are not compatible with Windows Mail programs).  See point 3 on the same page: www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

Then try to empty your temporary Internet files of Internet Explorer (Tools |) Internet Options | Delete files).

Then compact and repair the Windows Mail database (www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/)

See it if you can save attachments (keep it before opening).  Note (point 3 above) you will need to remove and add your e-mail account, if the antivirus is interfering.

  • When you open an attachment in windows mail it seems to take ages to open sometimes up to 5 minutes.

    can you help me


    1. What is the format of the attachment?
    2. which browser is installed on the computer?
    3. what anti-virus is installed on the computer?

    Method 1: Temporarily disable anti-virus and see if the problem occurs.
    Method 2: Perform the clean boot and see if the problem resolves.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: follow step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual after the boot process.

  • How can I get rid of the private browsing page when you open a new private window?

    When I opened a private page of private browsing navigation appears and says this:

    Private browsing

    Firefox don't remember the history of this window.

    In a private browsing window, Firefox will retain all the history of the browser, search history, download history, form web history, cookies or temporary internet files. However, files you download and bookmarks you make will be kept.

    To stop private browsing, you can close this window.

    While this computer will not have a record of your browsing history, your internet service provider or your employer can always track the pages you visit.

    I want to get rid of this suggestion?

    It is not possible to get rid of this page in normal mode.
    However, you do not get this page if you start Firefox in private browsing permanent mode (don't remember history).

    • Tools > Options > privacy > Firefox will be: "Use the custom settings for history": "always use the private browsing mode.

    I don't know what kind of joke someone plays, but it is not . I have already most likely to get surgery on both of my hands soon for carpal syndrome severe. For each round of a mouse wheel and all the clicks that I have to endure it's useless, my pain and my symptoms are growing more intense. I have 7 hard drives in my computer. I have search and locate and organize and delete and add files of ALL TIME. I'm in the Explorer of ALL TIME. It is deplorable that I had XP Pro because of threats of compliant. XP has at least had an Explorer who worked perfectly. Now of having to learn a new platform (Windows 7) and I am forced to support a program who has a child of 12 years could have better designed! How long still is * going to go? I discovered only recently that Explorer in Windows 7 has a tree that falls to the bottom of the page fricking every time that a file is opened, so I am forced to dive to the bottom of the page to locate the folder. So I started the research on the forums to see if I was losing my mind and just something wrong. I read messages from people complaining about this BS in 2007. Why is that, after 4 years this perverted arrogant control problem still exists?

    This is the Bug of scrolling in the left pane.

    Look at the left pane scrolling bug:

    3. Windows Explorer navigation pane problem

    4. Explorer moves the folder selected to the bottom of the folder list. How can I stop this?

    5. behavior of strange folder in the left pane of Windows Explorer


    The classic interface mainly eliminates the bug in Windows Explorer, but it will still exist in the open/save dialog boxes.

    Pane left scrolling bug (and other corrections):

    Using the classic interface to restore functionality of Windows Explorer

    After you have installed the free Classic Shell , you can customize Windows Explorer more closely to how you want it, the quote below is just a way to do it. Click here to see some of the options that you can customize, and here is the FAQ page for the classic interface.

    A solution that works for the restoration of some features.

    1) install the free Classic shell.  It's very customizable and works like a mod for Windows Explorer rather than a full blown replacement. You don't need to install the classic Start Menu option, but you can if you wish.
    2) restart the computer.

    3) launch Windows Explorer (Start - computer) and turn on "Always show Menus" (organize - Layout - check menu bar). It's just for the configuration, you can disable it again later if you wish.
    4) right click on the menu bar and turn on the 'Classic Explorer Bar.' This adds a series of icons for cut/copy/paste in Explorer. Basically, it also adds the "Configuration" icon
    5) go in the configuration and from there, you can change things to your heart's content. To kill the horrible record-jumping 7 Windows, place you Vista in 'Style Navigation pane. You can even hit back to XP mode if you want (this adds lines to the tree of folders and adds a classic icon "+" for the expansion of folders). The Windows Vista folder display style looks about the same as the view from Windows 7, but it gets rid of the horrible blow.
    6) adjust other settings you want.

    After that, you can activate the toolbar and menus walk back to explore if you wish. Explorer Windows seems largely the same, but folders is no longer jumping around.  Vote for Microsoft to fix this bug.

    Now if only MS allows to code correctly so that we don't have to mess with third-party applications to get Windows actually works...

    You can also let Microsoft know you want this bug fixed here: http://mymfe.Microsoft.com/Windows%207/feedback.aspx?formid=195

    I've had this problem for a while now but have never been able to find a solution. Basically if I use something within Premiere Pro that opens a Windows Explorer dialog box (for example, when you choose a custom LUT), the program sometimes goes a little crazy.

    The dialog boxes is not pop up and the program becomes unclickable. And when you try to click on what, whether it gives it its particular of Windows. That occurs when you use a program and a dialog box has popped up and you try to click outside the dialog box.

    In the past, if I tried to end task and then cancelled, the program will open. However, with the last update things became different. It unlock again, but the program does funny things as it won't save. It does not update the video window when you rub. Etc., basically it becomes unusable and you will need to complete the task without being able to save your work.
