Hi Experts,

we use outlook 2003 sp3 32-bit with windows 7 enterprise 64-bit, exchange server is version 2003 sp2. Recently, I found out that some emails will crashes outlook when you try to either read it from the reading pane or double click to open it. A event log about a faulting module mshtml.dll is logged in the application event log.

1. One or more of your incoming emails has infested your machine with malware.
2. One of the Outlook add-ins is causing a problem. Disable add-ins until you resolve the issue.
3. Make sure Office is fully updated - all service packs and patches.
3. Try do an Office Repair.
4. Even consider uninstalling Office, restarting and reinstalling plus service packs and patches.

Based on other threads, try updating your BIOS (that worked in a slightly different case), and see if more memory might help (unless you already have 2Gb or more). ... Thinkpads_User

For the most part, Office 2003 should work with Windows 7, but it is still an older piece of software. Try Office 2007 or Office 2010. Both those (and in 32-bit versions) will work for sure reliably in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit or 32-bit.

I have Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and used Office 2007 without errors and now use Office 2010 without errors.
