I think my computer has a virus as it has slowed to almost a stop. It takes
15 minutes to open anything I click on and over the last few days any
operation using the keyboard has slowly failed.
I have managed to get all my Documents onto an external memory drive, but I
dont know how to save my Outlook files. I know it is called .pst but just
dont know how to do it.

'help' suggested Documents & Settings\Local Settings\Application
data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. I get right through to Outlook, but
there is no Outlook.pst.

can some one help me before the computer freezes altogether pleeeease

Love to Sue, but as you don't tell us what version of Outlook or Office,
or more importantly, the operating system you are running (Windows XP?,
Vista), I'll have to take a guess.

Open up My Computer, and open a search <F3>, ensure the Advanced Options
are expanded, and select search hidden files and folders is checked.
Don't search for outlook.pas (it may not be called that), just search
for *.pst. When found, you can right-click the pst(s) in qeustion and
go "open containing folder" (I think it's called), and then you can open
up another My Computer window, drill into your USB stick, and then drag
'n drop the file(s) from one window to the other.
(Make sure Outlook is NOT running to do the copy).

Open outlook, look on the File menu for Outlook Data File and select it.
Select your pst file from the list and click the Open folder button. This
will open Windows Explorer to the location of the pst file. Close Outlook,
wait a couple of minutes to insure its closed completely and copy the pst to
your stick.
