    Somehow while using the add/remove programs function, I apparently deleted Outlook Express and now receive the error message "Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be loaded." I'm hoping there is
    some method by which I can restore OE with all the settings and files before inadvertent deletion? Help very much
    appreciated!

    Hi jcp1st,
    Try this:
    Go to Control panel
    Go to Add or Remove Programs
    On the left is there a box which say add or remove Windows components?
    If so open it and scroll down to Outlook Express. If it's un-checked that might be why it appears to have been uninstalled. Try checking it and follow on screen instructions.

    Hope this works for you ?

    Richard.

    mattice06082,
    A much more useful suggestion than mine. I'll make a note of it!
    Thanks

    Thanks to both 1002richards and mattie06082. I used the link and, even though it wasn't designed for Windows98,
    I lucked through it and now seem to have a decently functioning Outlook Express. However, when I attempt to
    access newsgroups I get the error messge "MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module INETCOMM.DLL...."
    Any ideas on how I can fix this?
