Ask a Computer Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi there and welcome
For costs, you would need to speak to customer service on
And they can answer this for you.
When you ready, can you tell me please exactly how you would like me to assist you as this was not clear in your initial statement sorry.
Can you tell me which version of outlook this is please?
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
Can you go to www.teamviewer.com
Click on Download in the middle of the page
Download and install the program and give me the ID and Password ***** please so I can connect
Do not close the program but leave it open else I will not be able to connect
I am here, how can I help?
Since the search started working again yesterday?
ok, can you run teamviewer again and I can check it,
ok, let the download complete and tell me if it is functioning again please.
If not, can you do the reindex as it may need to run again.
Let me know the results please.
yes please, then when its done, tell me if the search now works please.
No problem and thanks
I am here Michael
ok, we will have to re create the mail profile again then, it will mean it needs to download all your emails again so it will put email out of work for some time.
Also, do you have the exchange information with you now so we can enter this in?
You will need to have it, the information you used to connect to your exchange server, that you used when first setting up outlook.
Username, Password, ect, the information from the people who manage your exchange server (mail server)
I am off tomorrow, but we can do it Thursday or Friday Michael, which ever suits you best.
Perfect, send me a message then when your ready please Michael
Do you have the exchange information so we can do this?
yes, ID and Password
ok, now open outlook, select SearchFix from the list, let outlook download all the emails and tell me if you can now search please.
ok, but it will need to finish downloading, then index, you need to first let it download them all please
no problem Michael
Hi, I am here
ok, go to File, Account Settings, Click on your Account, Change Settings and and unchecked the checkbox Cached Exchange Mode
Then restart the computer and tell me if it then searches please.
I am unable to call but the issue is clear. How slow is it compared to normal as we are at the point now of a full outlook reinstall
A few hours to do, and you need to add the email account again as it will be all gone.
ok, but do you till have the office disks?
25 digits? (do not put it here)
ok, then you download it here
When you ready to do the operation, you go to Control Panel, Programs, Uninstall a Program
Choose Microsoft Office, then uninstall.
Once done, restart the computer
Then you restart the computer, and download it from my link and install it again.
Once installed, add the exchange account again, let it update and tell me if it now searches please.
I do, as the issue is likely to come back and I want a permanent solution for you.
But you can monitor it first and see if you feel the need to reinstall.
ok, if you can make a new question here I can do this for you.
I have not received it yet, but complete the process, it will come to me, to be sure you can put in
ONLY FORCustomerat the start
yes its ok, submit the question and it will come to me
I responded to the question
ok you would need to contact customer service on***@******.*** for these things, I have no access to it
Hi, I am here and I received your message.
The installation will take an about an hour
Then you add the exchange account and wait for your emails to download, which will take as long as it did last time you did this.
Then allow indexing to complete.
no, just reinstall, then add the exchange account again
Was there any improvement in speed?
you took a refund on the Acer question so you would need to make a new question if you want to do anything further with it.
ok.. but did you complete the reinstallation of outlook as we left off?
ok... we went all through this last month and I can not recall now....
When you added the other profile before, all your emails were there right? As they are on the server?
yes, adding a profile is not reinstalling outlook.
You will need to do the reinstalling and add the accounts again.
If they are stored on the server they will be returned.
I am nearly at the end of the day but back on on Monday
you too Michael
