Angry OE6 error

Frequently when I open Outlook Express, I get the error message "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down". Very agravating and I have tried several things but nothing corrects it. It doesn't happen all the time. Can anyone give me a good solution? Thanks

When it pops up the illegal operation box, click details. If it says "MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module Msoe.dll at address.", then it can be because the attributes of any or all of the Outlook Express .dbx mail files are set to read only.

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.

2. In the Named box, type *.dbx, in the Look in box, click Local hard drives (C, and then click Find Now.

3. For each *.dbx file that is found, right-click the file, click Properties, and then clear the Read-only check box.

4. Click Apply, and then click Close.

Good luck!

I tried that but no luck. My message reads "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." I have looked at the *.dbx files and all are clear. Anyone have other suggestion how to correct?

If you click on details, what does it give you...

is it something like this:

MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module Msoe.dll at address.
