    Hey guys,

    I'm having an issue here at work with my Outlook and Outlook express... they are differing issues, so I am going to leave this to Outlook Express. For some reason since last Thursday, everytime I attempt to open OE, here is what occurs.

    1) Outlook Express opens with the subject bar: Outlook Express - Inbox - cxvxc
    2) It proceeds to make both OE and IE set everything to "work offline".
    3) The program will not let me perform anything within it. I have to ctrl+alt+delete, and end task for Outlook Express.
    4) When I proceed to try and open it after that happens, I get the error:

    There is nothing in my Event Viewer that I can pick up regarding this. What is causing this strange issue?

    I found somewhere on Google groups that W2K often gets bad Profiles. I logged in as administrator, deleted my current profile, and logged in again under it, and everything appears to be working fine. Thanks for your help Yank. :)
