Dumping Vista is not "the obvious", Dumping Trend very definitely IS the
obvious! A recent version of the Trend antivirus program is one of the
three antivirus programs that cause the most problems in Windows Mail. Just
disabling part or all of it seldom helps; you usually have to uninstall it
instead, then do a custom re-install WITHOUT any of the email scanning
modules/features. You do NOT need email scanning regardless of which
Antivirus application you have or get. Email scanning is redundant, it does
nothing but create problems where none exist, and your system is FULLY
protected without it, provided you keep the resident file system scanner up
