Just click on ADD/REMOVE Windows Components inside ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS which you access in the CONTROL PANEL and you will see OE listed. Just uncheck the box and click next and have it get uninstalled, then go back in there and put a checkmark back in it and click Next and OE will be reinstalled.

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately I had tried your suggestion before and have just tried it again but I get the same message when accessing OE viz. 'O.E. has encountered a problem and needs to close'.
If you have any other ideas I'd be grateful.

But no resolve on re boot. The posting a Hijack This Log is confusing. The webpage seems to have two webpages connected. Viz. http://www.geeksto go.com./modules.............&id=3-
http://www.merijin.org. What is this?
The Outlook Express error detail has: Error Signature - AppName: msimn.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180
ModName: wab32.dll ModVer: 6.0.2900 2180 Offset: 0000c516

Firstly though could you address these perhaps useful points.
There are two other computers on my network which have fewer 'walls' than mine which have not been troubled using our new broadband firewalled router. I have AVG, Prevx, AOL spyscan, MS spyware and SpyBot all run and kept updated. I have had no trouble for the 2 years using AOL but just now started using O.E.
As a last resort would I be out of trouble if, God forbid, I should use my reload CD to get my computer back to 'factory setting'. Does this procedure get round any viruses etc. if I have them?
Could I download 'Netscape' and forget about OE to get round this?
Thanks for your suggestions.

Taking some time to do this, suddenly O.E. came up and I was able to read and send emails! I denied the Prevx warning and all seems well - for how long I don't know.
For your info the Prevx warning said...
The Application Windows Messenger is trying to modify reg. key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-4138.........with ""C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe/baqckground
Does this tell you anything?

All seems to be OK now (altho I don't know how or why) even before running 'shootthemessenger'.
