Outlook 2003 crashes. outex.dll and ntdll.dll are suspects

I know the error is coming from the outlook out of office assistant (outex.dll).  When disabled there are no crashes, and when enabled it only crashes when you open the assistant.  I have tried replacing the dll with the dll from another machine with no luck.  Have tried detect and repair and all updates are installed

Greetings, mullinsr !

1. Outcmd.dat has been known to cause Outlook to crash. Reset the Outlook toolbar template. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename outcmd.dat file. Restart Outlook and a fresh outcmd.dat file will be recreated.

2. Register important Outlook files. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Do the same for INETCOMM.DLL

3. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

4. Start Outlook in Safe Mode.  Go to Start > Run and type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /safe

Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.

5. Create a new Outlook profile.

6. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

7. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.
