    Hi..

    Just recently and I dont know why but I cant open outlook Express..I have tried every thing and searched high and low. I have uninstalled outlook via Add/ Remove and still no joy.

    I have read the Articles at mircosoft.com and tried the fixes from the registry etc but still no joy..

    I have been to Active Deskyop and removed components as requested in the registry and still no joy.

    these are the errors I get..

    First one I try to open Outlook Express

    Then when I click ok I get the following message..

    [​IMG]



    Im using Windows Xp...most of the help I have read is for 2000 or Me or even 98.

    Please help some one as its important I get it up and running..If not I guess a new install of XP will be a quick fix.

    Thx in advance.

    Did you try the Windows System Restore to a date before it went bad?

    Did you try to register MSOE.dll?

    Click Start. Run--->type in: regsvr32 msoe.dll and click OK.

    Maybe it got deleted?

    In Win 98se, it is located at:
    C:\Program Files\Outlook Express

    You could run FIND to see if yours is on your hard drive or.....

    You can go back to MS, downloads and just reinstall IE/OE 6 SP1 again and it should fix it. It should just take minutes, because you already have it so not everything will have to download.

    try this as I am having the same problem.
    Go to Add/remove programs go to microsoft internet explorer and click the add/remove.
    Then choose the option add componant.
    You may need your windows cd for this.
    Reinstall outlook express... and dont use any desktop icon to acess oe at the moment as it could be faulty...
    If this is all a bit mumbo jumbo.. but if you need to see it in better terms..
    In the win98/ms/ etc folder there is a subject on this topic all explained...eek hope that came out right
