Microsoft driving me mad!

By training ·
I am not a computer wiz by any strech of the imagination, so when I asked microsoft for help with an error message and paid a fee I really thought they would help!!
Can anyone help me? I keep receiving an error message... "IAMAP.EXE error!"
What do I need to do, because it appears that my Outlook programme will not work!

Using Microsoft & Help in the same sentence is an OXYMORON

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Microsoft driving me mad!

What I suggest you do is post you're question in the Q & A section but give a lot more detail like what version of Windows you are using, the total installed memory, the full system configeration and any specalised applications that you really need and someone here will solve you're problem for you but if you have followed M$ advice the correct answer is a total relaod from a blank HDD as M$ tend to stuf things up and always seem to blame it on some AV product even if none is installed.

The best one that I've ever had with M$ was an error message telling me that Device 6 wasn't present. After much looking at their material and a lot of time wasted on their knolledge base I rang them up and asked exactly what was device 6?

Eventually I was told that there was no CPU in the computer that I was trying to install Windows on and no matter how much I argued with thenm that this was not possible they just insisted that Device 6 was the CPU but I'm dammed if I know how a computer can tell you that there is no CPU installed or for that case even turn on and perform basic DOS comands like running FDISK or formating a HDD all of which had been done and it was only when I attempted to install Windows 9X that I got the error message.

iamap.exe does not sound familiar at all...

by R3D In reply to Microsoft driving me mad!

You may be having trouble with a second party installation that is a helper of outlook, or it's spuware of some kind. Do you have any toolbars installed on this system? check the installed programs list and see what is there that should not be there. Uninstall anything that looks suspicious of being installed without your knowledge. Try loading Adaware from Lavasoftusa.com

Good luck!

I couldn't find it either

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to iamap.exe does not sound ...

On a XP Pro or 98SE computer so that was why I suggested he try the Q & A section with a lot more detail.

Until we know exactly what he is running I know I can not offer any help because I don't know what he is working with or on what. But if you have any better ideas I'm open to sugestions.

OK I think the file you are looking for is called

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Microsoft driving me mad!

IAMAP.DLL which is used in the internet conection Wizard to creat an internet connection and then just as a work file to establish an internet connection after you have already setup the internet connection.

This file is common on Windows 95/98/NT3-4/Y2K/2003. You should be able to find it on a computer running the same OS as you have which you have not mentioned here and just make a copy of it and then paste it back into the same place where it came from on the other computer. Once this is done you're problem should be solved.
