Every time I try to open MS Outlook Express a window pops up that says, "Outlook Express could not be
started because MSOE.DLL could not be located".  I checked the Outlook Express directory and I see MSOE.DLL
in there so I don't understand why the program will not start.  Any ideas?

Ok Look in the registry and make sure this key is pointing to correct path

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook Express
DllPath  %ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msoe.dll

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\News\Outlook Express
DllPath  %ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msoe.dll

Note if your path is different then the one you see here make sure you change it to the appropriate path.

Doing a Repair on IE may help but it does not really seem to look for poblems with OE.

Click Start , point to Settings , click Control Panel , and then double-click Add/Remove Programs .

On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 , click Add/Remove , click Repair the current installation of Internet Explorer , and then click OK .
