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?
 
there are several files in an hidden application data.
go to "Tools->options->Maintenance->Store Folder"
find out where that folder is .

usually in something like documents and settings->temporary data
->application data->outlookexpress...

all else fails the files are extensioned .dbx and you can do a search in teh
document and settings folders.
