I have Windows 98SE with a Works package and Internet Explorer 5.5     I haven't used my Outlook Express email program for a while and when I tried to use it the other day it wouldn't open.  It says, "Outlook Express could not be started because msoe.dll could not be loaded."  My address book doesn't open either.  I tried reinstalling IE5.5 but it created some other problems with another program of mine so I can't use it to fix it that way, allthough it did fix the outlook express and address book problems while I had it on.  I went back to the previous configuration that has the problem using a system backup I keep.  Anybody have any suggestions on how I can fix this without reinstalling my IE5.5 upgrade.

Have you tried a Repair on IE5.5?  You could also do a Start-Run-SFC and tell it to restore that file.

I'm not farmiliar with the techniques for repairing IE5.5, if you have any pointers?  But as far as restoring that file, I did replace it with a known good replacement and it didn't make any difference, it still couldn't be loaded.

Did you use SFC to restore it?  If not, you may not have put it in the right place.
You can do a restore on IE5.5 and above with a Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove-MS IE-Remove
