Hi, I am running windows XP(home edition) and recently had a worm virus. I have successfully got rid of this, however Outlook Express seems to have problems that were not there before, could this be related to the worm virus??
I can receive e-mail and send it but on many varying occasions I get a pop up message saying 'Outlook Express has encountered a problem and will have to close'
When I look into this more fully I find in the error report the following:

Error Signature
App Name: msimn.exe                AppVer:6.0.2600.0
ModVer: 0.0.0.0.                       ModName:unknown
Offset:03e62342
 
Can oyu advise please I am a fairly competent person but certainly not what you would call an expert!!

Any advise would be very welcome
Thanks Anne

Greetings, big_anne!
   What operating system are you using?  A file in Outlook Express may be corrupted.  Uninstall and reinstall OE.

I have not fully explored my options yet. I am unsure of uninstalling and re-installing OE and have found  a few problems with internet explorer too Could they all be related??
OE only seems to have problems when I maximise the e-mail and try to 'reply' When the e-mail is in the original small window I don't seem to incur the same problems.
Many thanks for your suggestions up to now

Anne,
    Internet Explorer and Outlook Express share many files.  So they could be related. Reinstall of OE will get rid of the corrupted file.  If no joy, then a reinstall of Internet Explorer is in order.
