I have tried a number of things to get my outlook up and running again; including detect and repair a few times, re-installing the office 2003 prof office software using the change where I re-installed 2003 after uninstalling it. I have tried re-nameing old ;dll files to old and using the install disk to fix. After runinng the repair pst files the message stated that no errors were found. I have read some posts that state that the message that I get (c:\users\name\appdata\roaming\microsoft\addins\outlvba.dll is not where the file should be located.

I have gone to that address and the file is not there. I have turned on show hidden files.
I have changed the permission in any file that I work with to owner. So I do not get a messages warning of permission problems.

I then used the REGEDIT and looked in HKLM\software\microsoft\office\Outlook\addins\. There are four files located there: ACTOutlook Addin.connect; avgoutlook.addin; Microsoft.vbaaddinforoutlook1; and
search.outlookToolbar; All three of the non-microsoft files are components of programs that are installed on the computer. I found a post somewhere that states that the outlvba file is the only one that should be there.
When I look at the value in the right window of the registry editor, I see 4 lines also. line 1, (DEFAULT), REG_SZ, value not set; Line 2, FileName; REG_SZ; outlvba.dll;Line 4; FriendlyName; REG_SZ; Microsoft VBA for Outlook Addin; Kine 4, LoadBehavior; REG_DWORD;0x00000009 (9). I have tried to copy these exactly as they are written under the value portion including capital letters and small letters. (Does it make any difference?)
I am wondering if I can delete the 3 other files and if that will possibly solve my problem.
