Your problem is not very clear to me.
- Just adding/modifying/deleting accouns should have any effect on the program. What did you do to 'remove SBC/Yahoo'?
- And what do you mean with 'review/make changes'(in what?) and why did you want to do it?
http://techrepublic.com.com/5100-6329_11-5164857-2.html# tells a comparable story. If it applies to you, one should conclude that your uninstall/reinstall didn't succeed. I should suggest to try it again.
Maybe just delete the dll's with the wrong version, then go to download.microsoft.com, download the setup for IE6, and run it. Even if it has Outlook Express bold (to indicate you don't need to install it) do check it to be installed.
Hope this helps.
I run Win98SE, Have IE6 and have used OE6 while subscribing to various ISPs, the latest being SBCYahoo whose graphics I didn't like. I am now using Earthlink as well as plain vanilla Yahoo for email and have no problem sending/receiving. When I attempted to open OE to review/make changes (and I am bad about that) I found that OE "could not be started because MSOERES.DLL could not be found. OE may not be installed correctly". I also got "(OE) cannot be run in DOS mode", and didn't know I was in "DOS mode"and how do I check/confirm this! I may have lost some files when I removed SBCYahoo but I uninstalled IE6, including OE6, reinstalled and still get the MSOERES.DLL message on trying to open OE. Also got "an error loading outlook express MSOE.DLL.File may not have been installed or it has been corrupted"! No prob with IE6, its the only browser I'm using. How to clean up this mess and properly reinstall OE? I undserstand I can't do this separately but must include IE in un/re process. Is it time to cut win98 and go to ME??
