    When i try to open outlook express I get the message:

    Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be loaded

    I searched for this on MSN and i found this page:
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=296512
    It tells me that it is because I have disabled the address book on add/remove programs so i done what they said and installed the Address book and restarted my computer. When I tried to get back on i got the same problem.

    What could be wrong?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    The reason I a having this problem is because I disabled the address book on the windows setup tab in add/remove programs. But I have ticked the box to enable it again and I still get the error message. I have downloaded MSOE.DLL off the internet but that didn't work. Also, when I searched for this error message on MSN it gives me help for Windows 98 and version 5. I am using Windows ME and it Oulook Express 6.

    One thing that is common in all three of my links is to backup your contact info and emails and uninstall Outlook, then reinstall it.

    Or, wait and see if anyone has any better advice.
