Help- Outlook 2003 error with a vpmsece3.dll file.
Posted on 2008-11-13
I am getting this error when I start up Outlook: "The add-in 'C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\vpmsece4.dll' could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Deteact and Repair on the Help menu.
I have tried what someone has already suggested before like.
An addin could be interfering. Disable Outlook Addins. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.
Extend.dat is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.
Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.
So I looked for the extend.dat file and I can't seem to find it. That is a user specific file I think, there were other people in outlook at the time. Do I need to try this when no one is in outlook?
I have also tried a Detect and Repair while people were in outlook. Nothing was fixed, should I do this when everyone is out too?
So basically are there other options to solve this problem and/or should I try and solve this problem when no one is in outlook with the solutions already given?
Thanks in advance for your help and time. Hve a good day.
