I had to reinstall ms outlook express, but when I try to run it I get an error message that says the msoe.dll cannot be opened. I tried to run it from Windows explorer and I'm asked which program to use to open it, none of the ones seem to work.

You could try reinstalling the program, but this doesn't always work. You might find that you have completly uninstalled the product, but if you haven't try:
The easiest option is to find a friend using the same version of Internet Explorer as you, and then do a search on their system for the msoe.dll file. Copy this file to disk and take a note of where it was stored. Copy this to your machine, in the same directory that you got in from - usually Windows/System for 95 and 98 machines. Then try it again.

This error can sometimes be caused when the *.dbx files accidentally get their read only attribute set on. Verify that the read only attribute is not checked.

If you are running Win 98 and have the disk or have installed the cab files to your local machine. Look for the cab file Win98_36.cab, in this file you will find your elusive msoe.dll. If you don't have Win 98 it can also be found in Internet Explore 5.0 under the cab file MAILNEWS.CAB. Once you have found the file I believe that you will want to copy it to your your C:/windows/system file.
