    Can't Connect (W98)

    I recently helped a friend get rid of the KLEZ virus. We subsequently installed Norton AV 2002 and downloaded the latest virust definition and program updates. Also, downloaded the latest cumulative patch to Explorer V 6. Everything works OK including OE while offline. However, when Outlook Express goes to connect with the internet (over a dial up connection) up pops the following error message.

    MSIMN executed an invalid instruction ......

    The only fix I can think of is to reinstall OE unless someone has a better idea.

    Another question. Does OE come along with an Explorer 6 installation, or is there a separate download for OE? If so, where is it?

    Chuck, from what I understand, IE6 does not play very well with Win98. I think that the general consensus is to revert to IE5.5.

    Hi Mike,

    I've been running Exp 6 with W98 for quite some time with no problems, so I don't think that is the problem with my friend's machine.

    Thanks anyway. If nothing else works I'll try reverting to 5.
