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

Most OE problems are caused by corrupted data files or registry settings and a reinstall
won't generally fix these.

What sort of problems are you getting in OE?
