My main computer crashed and data has been retrieved from the hard drive including al

I'm going to provide too much info because those of us who are computer knuckleheads think everything is important since it's all a mystery to us.

My main computer crashed and data has been retrieved from the hard drive including all my Outlook Express dbx files. There are four years of e-mails in these files and critical that I be able to open them.

My only working computer runs XP. It has Outlook Express installed on it and was once used for e-mail, but no longer and not set up with my provider to send or receive if that matters at all. Other than sending and receiving all other OE program functions seem operational.

I have read many explanations on how to open dbx files on various sites - every one is completely different and most seem far beyond my skill level.

Is there a fairly painless way to open these files? I don't want to attempt anything that could damage them. Please....any solution please walk me through in the simplest terms - I'm 64 but pretend you're explaining the process to a 7 year old. Yes, I'm that lame!
