Need assistance! Computer does not recognize Microsoft and wants me to reload (Error Message: The required file ExSex32,dll cannot be found in your path. Install Microsoft Outlook again).

I purchased this laptop (HP Pavillion dm1-3025dx) in mid-May with a one time Microsoft package. How am I supposed to download it again? Is that supposed to cost me money? Sorry -frustrated....

I appreciate the answer and am trying it now - unfortunately, I need full access to my computer in 5 mins and it's still repairing. Is stopping it and retrying going to cause a problem??


And, when I close the window will my answer still be accessible for reference?

Do NOT stop the repair process once it has started.

I ran the whole thing, didn't stop it after all. Outlook is not working....all of the other Office programs seem to be. Windows had to reconfigure Visio (as I bought that individually) but it's all working except Outlook. Outlook opens, email seems to be received/refreshed, but as soon as I select something - the same error message appears. Now what? (And thank you ....)

May I please, remote into your computer so that I can better help you resolve this problem?
