    I have used Outlook Express 6.0 for several years. Over a week ago, it started to close, as soon as it opened up. It shuts down so quickly that I can't read the error message. From what I could see, the message said, "Runtime Error!" and I think it showed C:\ProgramFiles\OutlookExpress\msimn.exe I also read something about the error causing Outlook Express to close improperly. I hope this makes sense.

    When this error began, an Outlook icon appeared on my desktop. I have never used Outlook, so I don't know where this came from.

    I have not been able to find a solution anywhere. I read a suggestion about giving my account a new identity, but I don't know where File > Identities > Add new identity commands are located.

    My OS is Windows XP. I clean up all temporary files and history at least once a day. I have the CA Security Suite with anti-spam, anti-spyware, and anti-virus programs that run regularly. I originally downloaded OE from an online university disc, and I don't attend that school any longer, so I can't reinstall it.

    Can OE be repaired, or do I have to change my e-mail to Outlook? Can you please tell me what I need to do? The only reason I can write to you now is because I just did a system restore and could finally confirm my registration. When I get out of OE, the runtime error will return.

    I appreciate any help you can give me!
