Outlook 2007 does not open links or filattachments

I have just noticed that my XP Pro SP2 machine will not open URL links from within e-mails any more. It displays "Application failed to initialize properly IEXPLORE.EXE 0xc0000142".
I have Googled this, checked and scanned for spyware, adaware and viruses to no avail. I have run Glary Utilitiies, CCleaner, RegscrubXP, SpybotS7D, Asqured, Regclean, TuneUp Utilities 2007, but still have the problem.
I have noticed "TuneupAdvisor" advertised on Google, but am wary as to whether this is a suitable source of a cure. Any ideas as to the best procedure to rectify this problem?

As I was unable to correct the problems, I decided that the best solution was a completely new install of XP Pro along with all of the programmes. This was enforced upon me after an Acronis re-install decided to corrupt the mbr etc.
