Finally, my Outlook also doesn’t work. I get the following error message:
Task email address - Receiving' reported error (0x80040900) : 'The server name you entered cannot be found on the network (it might be down temporarily). Verify that you are online and that the server name is correct.'

Hello Emerald,

Yes, I had malware and have cleaned the system. The issues still exist though.

Proxy settings are on automatically detect

Sounds like you are not connected to the internet, have you checked cables, wifi connections, router, modem, checked with another system if it can get online?

: ) Definitely connected to the web. I can navigate to any site and download programs to my desktop. The issue occurs when I download a file that must retrieve additional information from a website. The Outlook and this issue have been longstanding and originated when my motherboard went. Now I can only run 64 bit programs and thus my Outlook no longer works. The latest Adobe Flash update however now prevents me from viewing my webmail and online videos.

Even 64 bit Windows can run almost all 32 bit programs. Try disabling the firewall and test things.

I'd re-install Windows and run the drivers and program setups again if you can't run 32 bit programs.

Uninstall and re-install Flash, you could also try it in another browser like Firefox.

Did you check the Outlook settings for email?
