    I had a few problems with by harddrive and ran chkdsk to fix it. I'm running XP SP2. All seems fine except that none of my Office 2000 applications would work. I reinstalled Office 2000 and all are fine except Outlook. When I start Outlook, I get the message "The operation failed" and when I click OK the program exits immediately. If I go to Control Panel/Mail to check for Profile, double clicking Mail has absolutely no effect - nothing happens. I'm stumped on this and would appreciate advice. (I don't know if this is related, by my Outlook Express will also not run - it tells me MSOERES.DLL is missing....but it is present in the OE folder!)
