Outlook 98 Concerns

Hi Carey,

My windows 98 appears to have changed. For example when I’m in “my documents” and right click on an item the menu does not allow sending to a mail recipient and if I go to the file menu it does not have that option either. Any answer would be greatly appreciated.

Can a Trojan Cause Outlook Express to Hang?

Quesiton: I am using MS Windows Pro on a laptop with Intel 850Mhz and 256MB RAM connected to the Internet using cable. Using Norton Personal Internet Security.

I was cleaning up some messages in my inbox (Outlook Express). I tried to delete a message from “MAILER-DAEMON@mail09b.bellsouth-hosting.net” the subject failure notice. Each time I clicked on it my computer froze and I got the message that the program was not responding and had the option to end now or cancel. Cancel never did anything but End Now would close Outlook Express. Then a little while after that I noticed on my Internet security several messages that said “rule default block backdoor/subseven trojan horse matched.” Could this be connected? What should I do?
