The deleted folder in outlook express will not open or empty. Also I cannot delete any e-mails from the inbox. I am running XP so how do i repair or delete and reinstall OE please.

Try a sfc /scannow first, then check to see if the problem persists.

If no joy, try a repair.

Both methods at click here. G

Sorry, I forgot to add that running both the above will help OE too (not just IE). Good luck, G

This sometimes works. Open OE then click File, Folder and click Compact All. Close OE then reopen it.

Also, if you don't want any of the email in the 'deleted items' folder, search for deleted items.dbx, right-click it and delete. A new (empty) one will be created next time you open OE.

I tried deleting the folder first and that worked. Thanks all
