COM Add-ins problem

Running Win98 with Office 2000.  Removed Outlook Express 5 after installing Office and Outlook 2000 didn't like it so I put it back on again.

Now Outlook is complaining that C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Addins is an invalid add-in very time I launch it.  I removed any add-ins from the add-in manager and then realised that it was actually the COM Add-in that was complaining.

No COM Add-ins are listed but I get that message every time I go into the COM Add-ins manager screen as well.  Somewhere it must be trying to open an Add-in that it does not like but because it is not successful it will not list it.  Any idea how to get rid of this error message?

It was down to the Small Business Customer Manager not being installed.  Involved a regedit.  That MS KB article covered it.

Nice one.
