How to re-install Outlook Expiress 6 without the XP CD

Hi All

Please be assured that I am not asking for a fix because I have a 'hooky'
installation.

My sister-in-law's PC did not come with a WinXP CD and the suppliers say
they can only supply a complete system restore, which will wipe everything
off it.

All I want to do is re-install the Outlook Express 6 program, because it has
become unstable.

Is there any way I can do this (I have bband so downloads are not a problem)
so that these rough arses don't have to wipe the whole machine just to fix
this one problem.

Thanks

Since OE is a subset of Internet Explorer, go here and download IE6 and
follow the directions.

Download latest Internet Explorer package. Save it do local storage. It inculdes Outlook Express.

First read MS article 318378

Study the last part of the article closely.

Totally unnecessary. Just run the msoe50.inf file under C:\Windows\Inf (a
hidden system folder). Just right click the file and choose install.
