HI there
  My system has Win-98 (First edition), IE 5.0, Office 2000.
  I frequently use the Address book of microsoft (reside in startmenu>>programs>>accessories>>Address-book.)
  Previously the Import/export feature of Address book worked fine. But now the two items (import & Export) in the 'File' (item in Menu bar) are disabled in the address book. So I am  unable to import or export my address book anywhere. Although the other items in file menu are working fine.
  If anybody could help me in correcting my problem or guide me from where I can reinstall the address-book, will be highly obliged.

Greetings, rgupta197!
  You can do a repair of Internet Explorer, since Outlook Express and IE have many files have many files related. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.
  If the above does not work, you can uninstall and reinstall OE5.

Best wishes, war1
