    This started last October when my Outlook 2003 stopped sending and receiving. After trying to fix it for two months I took it into the shop. First time was told it worked but it didn't the second time I took it in, the tech said that there was some kind of security setting/license that had to be updated. He did it and the next thing I knew I have 435 e-mails coming in. I figured success.

    Now I have no power point and Mozilla Firefox won't boot. I tried to reinstall Microsoft Office Professional 2003 to reinstall Powerpoint and I keep getting a message that it can't find "mainsp3.msp" and wants me to browse to it. No clue what that is?

    Mozilla starts to boot and a little box labeled "Alert shows up but nothing in the box to see what the alert is. One time before the alerts came up I got a message that it can't find "firefox.exe". I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to no avail.

    I was going to reinstalled Windows XP Home over itself but I got to a screen saying it couldn't but I could repair, so I chose repair. I seems to have reinstalled and afterward updated itself.

    Anyone know how to fix these. I'm about ready to format the hard drive at this point.

    You should post in the Malware section, in order to rule out any Malicious software.

    I have OE 2003 and you have to make sure you have SP3 for Outlook (not XP but that should be done also) installed as it solves many problems.
