I am having trouble with Outlook 2007 closing unexpectedly. (This following a recent malware seige that has been eliminated but involved quite a few scans, deletions/corrections and finally locating and editing the system file.) Computer is working great now save this one issue.

I searched for the dswsock.dll file in start menu and it located it in the system file, so I suspect it is corrupted. Can you help? I would prefer not to have to reload the whole office 2007 program, but have discs if needed.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi Sharon1955,

I just wanted to let you know that I replied in your other thread. We should really do a check to make sure there is no more hidden malware. I can also help you check on this error. Please see my reply in your other thread.
