 Auto-preview pane does not show up...Layout won't work either

I just went and used Outlook Express for the first time in a while, and there
is a very strange problem...

For some reason, the preview window does NOT appear, for mail or newsgroups.
Attempting to double-click on an E-mail or newsgroup posts gives the "One or
more parts of this message could not be displayed." followed by "There was an
error opening this message. There is not enough memory."

Some menus will not work, such as going to View then Layout does
nothing...the same for Tools then Options.

I think it is a problem with the registry being corrupt...however I tried
re-installing XP SP2, and it didn't work...any ideas or suggestions?

Preview Pane problem:  Check View | Layout.

Memory:  From  http://www.fjsmjs.com/OE/directdb.htm

This generally indicates corruption in the message store.
Start by moving Folders.dbx to an empty Windows folder (with OE closed).
Note:  the DBX files are hidden in Win2K, WinXP and Win2K3.  You will lose
your folder hierarchy and the lists of newsgroups on the news servers, but
it might get you into OE.

If that doesn't do it then move all of the DBX files to the same folder as
Folders.dbx (again with OE closed).  You should now get into OE.  Try
importing the messages from
the folder you moved the DBX files to.  If you can't, you can use this tool
to extract the messages:

DBXtract ($5):

Note:  It can take a long time (days with really large folders).

The messages can then be dragged from the Windows folder back into a folder
in an open instance of OE.

I can't go to View - Layout like I said...if I can figure out how to get the
preview pane to work properly, the error messages should go away.
