Outlook Express error after IE6 upgrade

By kevinp ·
Client has Win98SE and IE5.0. Client contracted klez virus, which was successfully removed. Upgraded IE from 5.0 to 6.0 which went fine! Reboot and got an error:
Oemig50.exe linked to missing Advapi32.dll
RegOverridePredefKey.

Checked and restored Advapi32.dll - no diff.
Everytime Outlook express is started this error shows up! Click OK - the dialog error box closed and it all works fine!
Whats with the error and how do I stop it!

Hello,
Have you tried un-installing IE6 then re-installing WIN98SE before trying IE6 again.
The virus may have caused more damage than you first thought.

Hi
I have this experience with Klez. After I clean the system I have many missing/damage "exe" files.
The best thinghs (as in answer1) is to backup your data and perform a fresh install.

Check the system using Find,File or Folders and check for any large files that will have suspicious .exe or other extensions

Open the Control Panel,double-click on Add/Remove Programs,highlight IE,then click the Remove button,in the pop-up menu choose to Repair IE
The other option would be to remove Outlook Express and reinstall,you can download OE from the Windows Update site
