    This is something of an 'oldie' but I can not resolve it.
    I have used Windows 98 SE on one of my PCs for some years. A couple of years ago I updated Internet Explorer & Outlook Express from v.5 to v.6.
    All was well until recently I had my PC upgraded (bigger hard drive, new processor, new CD drive). To get it to function I had to reinstall Windows 98 SE — NOT a clean install — and now although I can open Internet Explorer I am unable to open Outlook Express and get only the message '- - - cannot load msoe.dll - - -'
    I can find various references to this problem on the Internet but none seems to refer to my particular configuration of Windows 98 SE with IE/OE 6.
    Any ideas anyone.

    If you are able to connect to the Internet, you should download the a latest version of the Internet Explorer. This will refresh not only the Internet Explorer, but also Outlook Express. You can also request a CD with the installation files by only paying for handling and shipping.

    I agree. Reinstall Internet Explorer, and make sure it's the latest version - 6.0 SP1.
