When trying to open outlook express 6 on an 98se os I get a message saying that msoe.dll not found could not load. The dll is in the C:\program\outlook express Dir. Thought maybe it was corrupt so deleted it and grab a copy of it from my backup drive, still can't open outlook express. Did an internet repair, a virus Scan with both norton and avg. Nothing has changed on my system all I did was try and go through my morning puter routine.Please help I live by e-mail......Thank you

I also read somewhere that maybe this can be caused by the >dbx files marked as read only. When I went to check them I found no .dbx files.

Hi brindle

Your inbox, outbox, sent items etc are .dbx files- hence inbox.dbx outbox.dbx etc

Go to start\find files and type in

*.dbx

see what you get

if these are deleted windows should make new ones when you reboot

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.
Double click Add / Remove programs.
Find Microsoft Internet Explorer and Internet Tools and single click it, then click add/remove at the lower right.
Select repair and see if that helps.

Hi brindle

Follow this path and see if you find any .dbx files there ?

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{16213920-ECA6-C5930914B54C}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

If there is a "folders.dbx" delete it and reboot

Go to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express

What happens when you click on "msimn.exe"

Right click "msoe.dll" click "properties" - what is the version number ?

P.S. This is a different link to the one posted by dtugg, have you seen it ?
