Outlook Express 6 will not load at startup

by Rick1948 / January 13, 2007 5:23 AM PST

OE6 will not start up. I get a blue screen notice of OE6 and then it stops. I click... Control-Alt_delete... " Msimn - not reponding " shows. What do I do next to resolve this and save the stuff I had in my original OE6 folders when it did work?
I just got DSL when this problem started.
My System.. win98se, Compaq 5030 CPU, IE6.
