Problem with Outlook Express

  Yimbo 16:53 17 Sep 2006

Trying to access OE I get a message "Outlook Express has encountered a problem and needs to close down. Sorry for the inconvenience" It doesn't say what the problem is - or what it (or I) needs to do about it. Any ideas??

it might show up the error there

Outlook Express and Internet Explorer share many files. Perform a repair of Internet Explorer. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

Also, you can get to the IE Tools menu by clicking Start > Run and type

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

If still no joy, uninstall and reinstall Outlook Express.
