    missing MAPISRVR.exe file (Windows XP Home)

    One again I need to turn to the smart loungers! I'm so glad you are there. Just recently (Aug. 24) I was forced to format my C drive, and I reinstalled everything. Everything was fine until today, when I ran Norton Utilities WinDoctor (I do it about once a week, along with defrag, etc). Norton came up with the usual gazillion ActiveX errors, which it repaired. But one of the errors is a Missing File: C:WindowsSystem32MAPISRVR.EXE. - with the Norton explanation: cannot access the necessary file gapi32.dll. I checked the properties of the .exe file, which still is in Windows, and it seems today was the first time it was accessed (by me checking the properties). There I learned that this is the extended MAPI 1.0 for Windows NT. The last time I installed/removed something from my system was on 09/16, perhaps the file got "lost" then. Should I do a "restore" to a previous point? What does this MAPI file do? I have read the term but do not remember, please point me to some sources so I can read up. Can I reinstall just this file from the Windows disk? (I have one of those proprietary OEM funny disks). Or should I just leave it alone and ignore it?

    Thanks so much. I didn't put this one at Norton's door because up to now it never came up with the "error". How interesting. Have printed the MS instructions, and will do more reading. Thanks again! <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
