| Hi Deryck: Yes many people have had this problem that stems
| from a glitch in one of MS patches/hotfixes. They are well
| aware of it, an hopefully will have a fix for is soon.
|
| "April 2003 Cumulative Patch for Outlook Express (330994).
The
| patch is installed for Outlook Express 5.5 or 6 in response
to
| a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to run code of
| the attacker's choice on a user's machine "Microsoft Corp
| notification." PC HELL.COM explains it below.
|
| The below link should provide all the info you need.

| you wish to read it.

| has a page on this problem, I just can't find it right now.
