    Hey Redshawn... The first thing I would ask is do you use McAfee as your antivirus program? I believe this SCANCOMP.DLL is used in the scan engine.

    I noticed my link will only take you to the support page. SoI copied what is there:

    Error Starting Microsoft Outlook: 'scanemal.dll could not be installed or loaded' (CR11747)

    Summary: This document explains how to resolve emalscan.dll, scanemal.dll, or hawkex.dll errors when launching Microsoft Outlook.

    Product(s): VirusScan Classic, VirusScan Home Edition, VirusScan Professional
    Version(s): 6, 7

    Description

    Installing VirusScan 6 or 7 over an existing installation of VirusScan 4.5.1 (corporate mutli-platform version) may produce this message. To resolve the issue, follow the instructions below.

    Solution

    Click the Start button, point to Find (Search) and click Files or Folders. In the Named box, type extend.dat and ensure that the Look in box is set to the drive where Windows is installed and click Find Now. In the list of files, right-click extend.dat and click Rename on the shortcut menu. Rename the file to extend.dat.old and press ENTER.
    Restart Outlook.
    More details about Microsoft Outlook and issues of this type can be found on the following reference:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q178265

    More Information

    The extend.dat file is a binary cache of the Outlook extension settings. By renaming extend.dat, Outlook will check the location of all the Add-In
    extensions, cache this information, and rebuild the extend.dat file.
