Lozzy - thanks for your suggestion. I'm using Windows XP and there is no facility to click on Repair. Infact the only mention of Outlook Express in the Add or Remove Programs column is -Outlook Express Update Q330994. By clicking on Change or Remove a new error message appears - "There was an error trying to uninstall this patch". Maybe the problem lies with the patch?
If you click the link in my post above you will find a few suggestions to try.This question has been asked before in PCA Helproom,and a search thru previous threads will I'm sure produce a solution to your prob.I used to get this with OE/MSN Messenger,and I found if I closed Messenger before closing OE the error didn't occur.
