Outlook Express-Failure of Address book

  MWGB 19:19 17 Dec 2006

I have error message-'The Address Book failed to load. Outlook Express is incorrectly figured, please re-install.'
Have tried most of the Microsoft KB's but none worked. Also allowed Microsoft technician access to my system & he could not repair & said he would have to do more research & then left me in limbo- cannot get any more response from them!
Anyone got any ideas?

Basically as above,it looks like its corrupted and the address book will be lost,unless you have backed it up.

You could try the system file checker

Start/Run and type sfc /scannow (note the space /)

Thanks to 'ICF' & 'skidzy', sorry for delay in replying but I have to pick up my emails on another computer.Have tried both your links but nothing seems to help, would appreciate further help from yourselves or any other experts out there.
