applnch.exe & outlook crashes connected to SBS2003 - registry hack needed

I have an issue with one of my clients, where applying patches seems to cause a serious problem (XP OS & MS Office 2003).  Right now there are 19 patches or so, and after I apply them, I get applnch.exe error "SBS Client Launcher" fails, and when opening Outlook, it crashes immediately.  Detect and Repair, reinstallation, etc. have no effect.  System restore will revert the machine to it's previously usable state.

I ran into this issue back in April with another client, and found a registry key to delete (it regenerates itself upon reboot), and it solved the problem with my other clients' affected workstations.  The problem is, I CAN'T FIND THE SOLUTION AGAIN!  I'm pretty sure that the registry key that was deleted was an Outlook key, but more than that I can't remember.  I looked through my notes from the vists, and found references to the key, but not the actual key.  Also, I have changed my workstation, since then, and have no browser history to research.

Several hours of internet searches have yielded nothing.

Any search gurus out there willing to assist?

Nope.  Have seen that result before, but it is not the one I am looking for.
