Specs: Windows XP
Windows XP pro.has been reinstalled by my computer man after replacing the mother board (2nd hand) and he chose to install Office Outlook but I prefer Outlook Express which is simpler and is less cluttered. My man says that I can not reverse back to OE.

✔ Best Answer
It can be done.

Open Outlook Express, go to the Help file, click on the Index tab & go down the Importing.

Hi JohnW, Another problem my computer man has left me with is that when I shut down my computer it no longer switches off automatically, I have to wait for instructions to do so. MCM says that it will probably return after MS has finished updating but after 100+ downloads inc. SP3 nothing has changed, it is so irritating to have to wait. Have you any thoughts on my problem ?

divbrain, here are things to check.

Start > Control Panel > Power Options
APM.
Advanced Power Management.
Tick > Enable Advanced Power Management support.

Does your machine refuse to shutoff at shutdown?

This may or may not work depending on whether or not your system supports APMS. Start regedit, and make your way to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] and in the right pane look for the key PowerOffActive. Change the value to 1.

Will not Shutdown

http://tools.supportforyourpc.com/g...
When booting press delete and go into bios and then power management, look for the power down or shut off option and select instant off instead of delay etc.
In Windows XP there is a bug that keeps the computer from powering off on shutdown. It is easily fixed.
Click on Start/Settings/Control Panel/System.
Click on Hardware then Device Manager.
Click on View at top then Show Hidden Devices.
Click on the plus sign next to NT/Apm/Legacy Support.
RIGHT click on the entry NT/Apm/Legacy Interface Node.
Click on Enable.
