After loading Explorer 5.01 Outlook Express will not load citing an "Illegal Operation".  If I remove the WAB32.dll file from the Program Files - Common Files - System folder, Outlook will load , but I have no address book.  I'm stumped - anyone?

I can tell you the standard fix is to use the Inbox repair tool. But the one time I used it, my data was history. I'd try compressing the folders first.

I looked all over Microsoft's site (about 4 hours)for this answer, and couldn't find it.  Thank you PLansdowne.
