Possible computer disaster ahead!</h2>

I decided to uninstall Internet Explored 5.5 yesterday on my laptop. I was experiencing slow actions in Windows Explorer and I have heard this is a probable cause. During the uninstall I saw a reference to Outlook Express (my e-mail program) and I checked that box. My understanding was that Outlook Express would roll-back to the previous version, just as IE was supposed to.

Now, on starting up my computer, I see Outlook Express is gone, therefore I don't know if my e-mail messages are gone. I am currently downloading I.E. 5.5 with Outlook Express. After the install I will know. Unfortunately, I had some e-mail messages that I was saving, such as program registrations, so I better not have lost it all!

When you get it back, select the messages you want to save and use the File - Save_As function to save them as txt or html files.

It's always good to back things up so you can get at them in more than one place...

Thanks for the suggestion! I will do that, on my laptop and here at home.
