When I click on the "Find a Contact" on the standard Outlook 2000 toolbar, I get the following crash:

Windows 98 Version 4.10.2222

I have tried the remedies in MSKB article Q241817 with no change.

Outlook appears to work normally in all other regards.

Hi Mitchchg,

Have you tried the steps proposed in this article:
OL2000: Outlook Stops Responding When Using the Quick Find Feature

If not, I would try an update to Office2000 SR1 via the link on the same article.

Hope this helps

Deleting the registry key took care of it!  How come MS has to make these KB articles so hard to find?  I looked high and low and didn't stumble on that one.  Guess I've got to get better at searching!

You're Wellcome, Mitchg.

Sometimes it's about luck to find the applicable MSKB article :-)

Turns out the article that I referenced has a link to the fix, but the link is broken :( and I didn't look into it further.

(The HTML is missing a digit in the article number - I sent a correction to MS.)
