    gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
    The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
    "Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

    The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES :):confused::p
    Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

    if anyone knows, pls let me know, so I can fix my goof.

    thx

    This post where they named the keys is not what you are looking for?
