Restoring Outlook Express Settings

    I have had a problem when downloading newsgroup messages. I get an error
    message that Outlook Express has encountered a problem with the msimn.exe
    file and is closing. I then run the program again and usually it runs
    properly. This has been happening for a couple of days.

    This time I when OE ran, I seemed to have reverted to earlier settings with
    inbox folders I was currently using to store email messages gone and folders
    I have not used in 2 years in their place. Similarly, there are newsgroups
    missing from my accounts and others from 2 years ago now there. I still get
    that same error message about the msimn.exe file when I download newsgroup
    messages.

    Version 6 is now running and I believe that is the version I had been using
    currently. I have IE 6.0 on a Windows XP Home Edition computer.

    Should I run DBXtract or should I download Version 6 of Outlook Express to
    restore the settings that were in place this morning?
