    Office 2013 and Outlook Issues


    After sorting through the crisis created by the KB3000850 MS update clashing with Avast I am finally after two days seeing the light.

    The experience has left my Outlook mail program on my Laptop hanging and not opening.

    After repairing both on and offline, and restarts and boots in safe mode I still have no answers to get into my mail on my pc.

    All I am getting is no access no matter what I do.

    Have you tried a complete uninstall & install of Outlook, including creating a new account (which creates a new PST file), followed by an FILE > IMPORT of your mail from your old/current PST file?

    Make sure you FIRST move your old/current PST file out of the default folder before install so it does not try and automatically import the corrupted(?) PST file again.

    If you need explanation or instruction, just ask.

    I do wish windows would test upgrades for incompatibility. I am getting little strange things happening but cant pin it down to a single item.

    The worst is a seeming incompatibility with Microsoft Expressions 4. I use this every day working on my several web sites. For the past month or so, I have been typing text or adding image and suddenly the screen reverts to the saved on disk version which does not include all that I have just done !!! I have to keep saving after a few mins to avoid losing data. VERY annoying.
