Is there a repair Outlook installation option version 2010; and have you considered a fresh installation as possible resolutions?

Did this ever work for you? Have you verified that the Comcast email server configuration settings are correct?

This hasn't worked yet. I am able to get emails. However randomly this logon pops-up,
and I can get past it by clicking OK, or also do a manual send/receive too get past it.

Is this a POP account? Does your provider limit the frequency in checking email?

Perhaps something changed on your system between the time it worked properly and when the errors started showing.

This is a pop3 account with Comcast. There's no limit to checking emails, that I know of,
especially since I've had this account for 10 years without an issue. I've made no changes
on my system that I know of. I haven't done any Microsoft updates in the past week. This
issue started happening on Tuesday, October 22nd.

Very long shot... Is this a malware issue perhaps?

What are the recommended cleaners

These are some of the items we advise on the forum; there are one or two others as well – should they be needed.

Install each using the manual/custom option – NOT the default/proffered automatic. Watch for and uncheck all pre-checked boxes – apart from the one for the utility itself. That way you avoid installing all manner of junk, and nuisance changes; much of it being a true PIA to eradicate. Sadly so many accept the default automatic installation path – and then the system slowly gets junked up…

Run them in this order:



Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)

Installs to the desktop, from you run it. It will open into a small dis style window; follow instructions therein. It will reboot the system as part of its process.

Also run ccleaner which will do much that diskcleanup does and some of the same as the above utilities.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk

Download the ISO; burn to a DVD; boot with that DVD. It loads into RAM only; then goes online to update itself. After-which it will scan the system fully. It will dig out and deal with anything it finds that hides within Windows system files and which cannot be dealt with whilst Windows is booted up.

Each of the above utilities goes after different pests; although there is some overlap.

Retain any logs generated for further use if needs-be. There are a few here who are very up on pests/malware issues; much more so than I am... And they may drop across and have a look-see if required...

I'm not questioning your expertise, I'm merely looking for information.

As I'm sure you know, there has been a lot of negative news about Kaspersky lately, e.g.

"The Department of Homeland Security has instructed federal agencies and departments to stop using products from Moscow-based cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab."

It appears that you are still comfortable using their products. I'd be interested in your thoughts on the US government ban. Please don't use the words "Fake News" in your response. ;-)

Fair question re' Kaspersky, and I am aware of the recent situation with Kaspersky.

He is most upset, dare one say indignant, that he is being accused of involvement. I'm somewhat neutral about it all; but if pressed re' the rescue disk routine etc. I'd vote in his favour.

The US federal situation is another matter. Their situation is much more serious re' security etc... Without the full and uncensored facts re' the Kaspersky alleged involvement, I'm in no position to assess properly the US Fed's responses. I don't have access to any of their systems, nor any others similar, and have never used any of my kit on any company system. I am a a strong advocate of never allowing non cmpany kit onto a company or similar lan...; regardless of what security software they and the third-party may have running.

Even then nothing is truly nvulnerable... Some years back an entire news broadcast system was seriously compromised, almost fell off air, when a staffer opened an attachment in his owm web-mail app on his company desktop pc... It took quite a while (more than two weeks) to fully clear, stabilse, and restore a working lan for the entire news area...

As one with a background once involved in the news business (amongst others) I'm well aware of the current "news games"; and how "that term" can be applied by anyone to anything reported as news and which either they don't like, or find "embarrasing", or damaging if confirmed to be "true"; or idesignate, or create, something as such with mallicous intent.

There are simlar rescue disks about, and this is a lnk to a review of several.

I have used Sophos and Bidefender versions; Kaspersky was one of the first on the block...

I'm not a fan of Eset; ; mainly as I found it to slow down my Mac systems when I had it installed; and it gives almost incessant popups about how well it's doing. I have Bitdefender freebie installed on my Macs.

I had tried several things that didn't work. However, when I got your solution,
and did the repair, Everything was better. Thank you very much.

Thank you for the post back/update. The repair suggestion was a long shot and from an earlier time with M$-Office Suite in days of yore...
