Found some similar topics but nothing on point, or that fixed the problem.
I'm running Office/Outlook 2000 on a windows 2000 machine. Yesterday I cloned my drive from a Maxtor 6gb drive to a seagate 80gb and thought I escaped problem free.

This seems to not be the case.
The problem originally manifested itself whenever I clicked on an email within the mailbox, right clicked a listed email for reply/forward etc. or tried to do a new email.

The error I got was:

Title: Microsoft Fisual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: c:\.........OUTLOOK.EXE

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

After reading information on microsoft's site I looked at my editor options, Outlook wasn't using word as an editor (when it is, this apparently is the problem).

Also I'm running Symantec CE 2002, this seems to often be part of the problem but none of the online fixes helped.

I tried scanning and repeairing the .pst files. Didn't help.
Ran all the spyware and virus software I've got. Didn't help.
Ran several additional things off your MALWARE page. Didn't help.

Eventually I turned on word as the editor. After doing so I'm able to reply to messages (right-clicked) and write new emails. This is in contradiction to a lot of what I've read. However, when I try and click on an email to read it outside of the preview pane I get the same error message as above. I can currently view and reply to everything through the inbox window and preview pane but this is still a big nuisance.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot.
