I have Win XP Pro and have been using its Outlook Express (OE) application with 
no problems.  However, yesterday when I started OE, the computer performance 
slowed way down, almost freezing, while "Receiving Mail" is displayed in the 
usual place (lower-right screen).  I tried a few soft reboots and one complete 
shutdown but got the same result.  I tried Outlook 97, thinking it was an 
Operating System issue since OE is integrated, but it still almost froze the 

The only thing that was different yesterday was a game I downloaded from 
Microsoft.  However, I only downloaded it to my desktop; I didn't install it.  

Any ideas why OE is suddenly acting up?
