An Error Occured when attempting to open the windows address book. Unable to find the WAB.DLL

Windows 2000 SP4, Office 2000 Pro

Recently (possibly post Service pack install) when I try and send email in Outlook I get the following error when I try and send email:

An Error Occured when attempting to open the windows address book. Unable to find the WAB.DLL

To rectify this I have done following:

- uninistalled Outlook Express 8including registry serttings and reinstalled
- Run 'Repair Office' from my Office CD's
- Uninstalled and reinstalled office

Have searched the MS KB and google without luck - anyone help?

Ah ok. Usually people give a B if the comment lead them directly in the direction that finally fixed the problem. Like in this case although the repair didn't do the trick it got you to thinking about IE as the possible cause. :)
