    On Outlook Express, when I download a post, a message on my toolbar
    appears saying" Windows delayed write failed".
    What causes this yellow warning to appear and how do I get rid of it?

    Could be several things. You didn't state your OS.

    If it's a USB drive, try rebooting.

    If it's an IDE drive, it may be failing.

    The "Enable write caching on the disk" feature for your disk is turned on.
    Your Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller is configured in
    either of the following ways:
    You are using a 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the
    controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
    Your BIOS settings are configured to force faster UDMA modes.

    Thanks guys. I have Windows XP, and the problem only occurs with Outlook
    Express, OK with Netscape. I'l check your reccommended links to see if I
    can solve the problem.
