Windows XP unable to find WAB.DLL

Thought I could maybe resintall Outlook Express to fix this using the IE6SETUP.EXE, however because IE is already v6 SP2 it will not allow me to run an earlier installation so consequently I cannot reinstall

Anyone any ideas how to fix this in XP?

Hi Guys.

Gonzal13: This is still an issue....I can't reinstall IE within XP because there is not a seperate install package for XP for IE and Outlook Express.

Anyone else any ideas? This is becoming a real pain?
