    Sometimes when I first open Outlook, I get this Msimn error. When I look at the Properties it says "Browseui.dll" error. What is this and how do I fix it?

    Hi ldcarden

    Go to start\settings\control panel

    click add\remove programs

    scroll down to "Microsoft internet explorer" and click add\remove

    You will be given 3 options

    choose "repair internet explorer" and click ok

    Yes this will repair outlook Express

    This should solve your problem

    Hi Steamwiz, Microsoft Internet Explorer is gone. We use web & email daily via Outlook, Yahoo, Hot Mail, etc. Do I need Microsoft Internet Explorer? If so, how do I get it back?

    So what browser are you using ?

    Or do you mean it's not listed in Controlpanel\add-remove programs ?

    I suspect you are using XP - can you confirm this as Del asks

    Hi ldcarden

    The Browser you are using is Microsoft Internet explorer

    But "Microsoft internet explorer" is not in start\settings\control panel - add\remove programs

    Is this what you are saying ?

    that's right. When I look in add/remove programs, Internet Explorer is not listed. Could it be bundled in with Microsoft Works?

    Hi ldcarden

    Try this link - down the page is an alternative way to get to the repair tool

    Basically "run" msinfo32 click "tools" then "internet explorer repair tool

    But this link explains everything very clearly

    If you installed MS Office after IE it will hide it in Add /Remove programs.

    If IE is not in Add/Remove Programs, you can do the following:

    For IE 5::
    **************
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK:
    rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

    NOTE: This command is case sensitive.
    If you need to replace a bad file from the original Internet Explorer or Windows media, use either the System File Checker (SFC) tool or the Extract tool to extract the file. For information about these tools, view the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
    SFC
    185836 Description of the System File Checker Tool (Sfc.exe)

    Extract Tool
    129605 How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files

    If the Internet Explorer Repair Tool Verification does not work, or if Internet Explorer 5 is not listed in the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel, you can start the Internet Explorer Repair tool from a command prompt:
    Click Start, and then click Run.


    For IE 5.5 SP 2::
    **************
    For Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 and earlier, in the Open box, type the following command (the command is case sensitive), and then click OK:
    rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"


    For IE 6::
    **************
    For Internet Explorer 6, please use the following command:
    rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
