    We don't get that many Outlook Express posts anymore. You may still be running Windows XP?

    OE files are .dbx files. They may be in a hidden folder, so you may need to enable your machine to "show...

    I just did this on all three laptops in the family here. My wife's 7 year old HP was a snap-it was under the hard drive. My 7 year old HP (different model) was more involved. My oldest, an 11...

    I had that same trouble years ago on an old ThinkPad, but that was the result of liquid being spilled onto the keyboard. Is there any chance that happened? In my case, the fix was to remove the...

    Ironic you should mention Mint, DanceMan. I just reinstalled Mint 17.3 on my ancient old (2005 vintage) laptop. Everything loaded and ran fine, except for the wireless card. Apparently support for...

    I think you may have a typo. You were running Windows 7-now you are running--what? And how did you change from one Windows to another? Upgrade, clean install?

    Based on that you are saying, I may go back in and expand it to 500 Mb to be more future-proof. Thanks.

    No. I got it sorted, though. My system reserved partition was 100Mb and about full, apparently, so the new update stalled on that. I downloaded a partition manager based on a blog I read and resized...

    Upgrade likewise went smoothly. Do note that if you have licensed programs, you may have to reinstall them or at least re-enter the license key. That wasn't an issue with Microsoft programs...

    It has been a while since I worked with Outlook Express. I think that the store folder for the messages is a .dbx file. Have you run a search for files with that extension? The folder may be hidden,...

    It's going to be really interesting. I have been playing around with the preview and tried the upgrade option on a cloned hard drive with Windows 7. The upgrade really did go fine. What I learned,...

    Thanks, Huge. I got the same thing. I have been doing some trying out on Windows 10, but I am not sure I really want to change from Windows 7. I surely don't want to be too much of an early adopter...

    Windows 10 Preview

    I have been trying out the builds on Windows 10. I have only done clean installs, though, and I am curious as to whether any of you have tried the upgrade instead.

    I did try Keepass. Not unlike my forays into Linux, I found it a little too cumbersome as to configuration, interface and the like, at least for me.
