How to backup Outlook Express email folders and settings

Postby Anca M » Wed Apr 04, 2007 1:59 pm

I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn't work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up... I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help?

reinstalling because you have a virus is a stupid waste of time. you should try to use something like the free avg antivirus app and windows defender (and also lavasoft ad aware or spybot) to try and fix your system.

and stop using pirated software.
