Display .mht in Windows Server 2003

Windows Server 2003

I thought i would be smart and create new install disk of server 2003, threw in SP2 a heap of updates, drivers required for the hardware and ie 7 all slipstreamed together.
All went well, it is now in production, as a DC, terminal server and file and print server, being used by a minium of 40 people every day.
When people access our Sharepoint site it has been discovered that .mht files are not displaying at all on the page.
When i try and open them with word i get "you need to have Microsoft Outlook Express installed to work with Single File Web Pages. Outlook Express is an optinal component of Explorer 4.0 and later."
Because i slipstreamed ie7 into the bulid, i cannot remove it to install ie6, as that is what i am pointed to when i try to find any install programme for Outlook Express.
I have also tried to fix the problem by installing ie 8 to no avail.
I have also tried to install OE by right clicking the msoe50.inf and choosing install, i have provided the media specified, but the install fails to register 3 .dll files innetcomm.dll, oeimport.dll and msoe.dll.
If i try and register the .dll's manually it fails with "the specified module could not be found".

Please if anyone has any ideas on what i can do to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.
