    I am running WIndows ME and Office 2000.
    For some reason, Outlook has stopped working. It comes on and says it isn't installed correctly...an OLE registration problem. Then it says to run setup again. I do, but it says the same thing. Have no idea what happened. It wont even stay open. Clicking ok on that dialog box, closes the program.
    Help.
    Also, is there a way to retrieve contact info from outlok, so I can import it into another program in the meantime. Is that info kept in a file that I can access?

    we did a bit of checking, and found that Outlook requires Outlook Express, which had previously been uninstalled. The OLE here probably referred to that, not object linking and embedding, which I first thought. We went into add/remove programs, reinstalled express, and now Outlook works fine, so far.
