Outlook express dll disaster

  torrid1 17:54 18 Jan 2004

I am a novice at all of this so be gentle with me.
I run Windows Me on a laptop and on a desktop. This week after what i thought was routine file tidying up i have lost the ability to use Outlook express on both computers. I get an error message telling me that MSOE.dll is not loading. I have searched for the file and it is still there on my C drive, i have reloaded Win ME but it's still knanckered. Help... how do I get OE working again.
Interestingly my Outlook on the PC works still but not on the laptop (same error message)

.. but I had that exact error earlier today.

Followed VoG's link but that says specific for OE6 in Windows ME, anyway I run 98SE.

A reboot of my PC was all I needed to get it going again. since then had no problems.
