Ok so one of my teachers computer is screwed up b/c her sons looked at too much porn and now there is spyware and adware galore. I can't boot it up its so bad its almost impossible to get into the OS even when i try to get in through safe mode. So im copying her docs and tryin to get her email. what i need to know is the directory where outlook express saves emails and address book and also accound setting etc. ive looked about eveywhere i can think of, so im thinking im gonna have to try to export everything to a external hard drive in the 2 min window that i have when its in safe mode. if anyone could tell me another way to do this that would be great.

If I remember correctly, it's somewhere in %appdata%\Microsoft. (paste that in run)


Edit: From command prompt, it'd be: C:\Documents and Settings\profile name\Application Data\Microsoft.

You might want to try Safe mode with command prompt, use xcopy to copy everything off the drive and then mount it as a slave.
