Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer!

exact error message*
It's the error box that pops up when a webpage shuts down: "We're sorry but ms outlook has encountered a problem and needs to shut down." Then it provides the choice of sending a report to microsoft or not.
Do you Office or Outlook CD?
Did you install Outlook using a CD/DVD?
I'm thinking it was on when I bought this desktop from dell. Which means there probably a backup CD, but I'd have to find where.
I see. Let us try a repair as follows:
Click Start->Control Panel.
Click Add/Remove Programs.
In the list of programs, locate and select Microsoft Office Outlook if it is separately installed or Microsoft Office if it is part of the office.
Click Remove/Uninstall button.
In the dialog that opens, select 'Repair' option and proceed with the repair.
Follow prompts to complete the repair.
it looks like it's part of office. I have ms office small business edition 2003
Ok. So select Microsoft Office business edition from the list and follow the instructions above.
Yeah, I did, I have to find the CD - and I have a meeting in about 1/2 hour. Let me try that and is there someway I can get back to you later today?
You can add this chat to favorites. However, I might or might not be online when you come back. Would you like me to opt out for other experts in such a case?
what's the best option? I probably won't be back for a couple of hours?
If I am not here, then the best option is to opt out for other experts. Someone may pick up with you.
ok - will do
Have a nice day :)
Found the ms small business ed. 2003 CD. Went into programs, did a repair. It seems like it might have worked.
Same problem I had Monday. Thought we'd fixed it. Apparently not.
Already Tried: - opening outlook in a safe mode - going into programs and repairing ms office
