    I have W98 SE and I'm using OE 6.

    A new problem has occured today.

    When I view certain e-mails which are in HTML format I get an error
    message and I have to close it.

    Message box pops up -

    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

    Runtime error!

    Program:c:\programfiles\outlook express\msimn.exe

    Abnormal program termination

    This error also happens when I copy some web pages into a new e-mail.

    I can't find any help on the MS knowledge base.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I get this on a single PC at work a lot, common factor there seems to be
    network drives, selecting files copy / move. Need to shut running apps
    and reboot. So the error is in explorer.exe rather then msimn.
    I thought there were a few .... oh well.
    Same here.

    One thing I did try was to reinstall last SP and uppdates as well as
    latest VC runtimes (Visual Studio Service Packs).
