    Hi,

    in the past week I have had major virus problems - a week ago w32.blaster.worm was identified, then a couple of days ago i discovered i also had sasser and the qhosts trojan. i have removed all of these, but have been having problems with OE - whenever I tried to create a new message or reply, OE froze and stopped responding.

    Tonight, the gaobot virus was discovered, and since removing this OE no longer freezes, but when I try to send any message it says "an error has occurred."

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Don't use Outlook Express when possible, that's my advice.

    You might want to go through OE's settings and make sure that no settings were changed by the malware.
