I keep getting this error when I open up my outlook express:
Internet Explorer Script Error
! An error has occured in the script on this page
Line: 229
Char: 1
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method
Code: 0
URL: res://C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msoeres.dll/frntpage.htm
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
yes no

I think that I started having this problem after I started using adaware to combat spyware and maybe I accidently deleted something. I am not sure. Is there any easy fix to this problem instead of reformatting my hard drive? I tried uninstalling outlook express and reinstalling, but I still get the same error. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! thanks!!

I have tried doing what the link says but I am still getting script errors. I have tried adaware, bazooka and xoftspy but I am still getting them. I know that reformatting my hard drive will get rid of the errors, but what happens when they come back?

Outlook express (OE) uses a frontpage that is stored in your PC. The code they're giving you is actually an html file stored in your computer. Either the PC is having problems reading the code, or JAVA is disabled in your advanced internet settings. You can try reinstalling the individual file. The frontpage for OE is the file in question. There is also a little box on the bottom of this front page that asks if you want to go directly to your inbox when OE is started... check this so it's on. For some reason, the msoeres.dll is messed up. Try reinstalling it.

I found a regedit fix too that might help; but I'm not certain I trust the source and haven't tried it myself so I'll shaddup :)

i was getting the same error and tried a suggested fix from microsoft that i found at: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;318378&spid=2578&sid=global

(you may want to try it but it didn't help me.)

what finally fixed my issue was reading XxMattxX's posting above about java settings.

i had disabled a lot of activeX, NET and other options in internet explorer. once i reverted back to the default Medium setting, however, i no longer got this error message when starting outlook express.
