Getting a RunTime Error When Printing Email

I have one user who is running XP Pro SP2 with Outlook 2003 (fully patched) and on certain emails (they can be internal or external) she gets an error when she clicks on print.

"A Runtime Error has occurred.  Do you wish to Debug?

Line:2020
Error: Unspeicified error."

If I click "yes," it loops back to the error message.  If I click no, then no printing.  It shows no pattern.

 I tried redsvr32 ole32.dll but got an error there too:

"DLLRegisterServer in ole32.dll failed.  Return code was 0x80070005

Thanks for any direction you can provide.

Does this happen in Safe mode?
Open Outlook by:
Start>Run>outlook.exe /safe

Might try the following to fit the issue:
Close Outlook then reopen by:
Start>Run>outlook.exe /cleanprofile

Would also try running ScanPst:

We don't use pst files but I will check the other options and let you know.  

I did try removing and reinstaling Office and it did not help.

Found a solution that worked for my location.
Needed to run the following commands:
Regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Regsvr32 inetcomm.dll
Restarted Outlook and everything was fine. Refer to Experts Exchange article "Print error in Outlook Express"

My user allowed me access just now.  Setup my local admin account with her email profile and had the same issue.  Ran the two reg server commands and tested again.  Worked like a charm.  Logged in as my user, who has limited rights, and it worked again.

Thanks!
