DIRECTDBNOTIFYWNDPROC

    I am running XP. Frequently, my outlet express fails to work. The only way
    I can get it started is to reboot my computer. When I reboot, I get the
    message "DIRECTDBNOTIFYWNDPROC is not responding" (or something to that
    effect). After I click on "Shut Down Now", the computer reboots and Outlook
    Express works again.

    Is there a remedy for this?

    Thanks

    A great way to fix Outlook Express is to remove it and install
    Thunderbird, it is free and works good. I did this and never once looked
    back.

    By the way, with Windows 7, OE is no longer available.
