Outlook Express receive blank emails, no text...

Recommended Posts

Zup peeps,

My uncle is having a weird problem with his outlook express. He has winxp Pro with all updates in his pc. I have fixed his pc in the past in which he had a total of 61 viruses/trojans and junk in his machine, so i dont know if that might be an issue now....

When he receives a message via OE he can see the from, to and subject with text but when he opens the email it comes up blank.... there's no text to read. I removed and reinstalled from add/remove in windows components, re-installed ie6 by downloading ie6setup.exe from MS. Had him clear out all his temp files with a prog called IEprivacykeeper. Deleted his account from OE and recreated it....no luck.

I setup his account on my pc in my OE and i can see the text ok.

any ideas?...cause i am outta' them!!! :(

thkz!
