When I try to open Outlook Express I get the message. Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. c:|Program Files\Outlook Express\msimnexe.

Does it say that it's missing the file? Have you tried to reinstall Outlook Express?

On a side note, we advise you to [B]not[B] run Registry Cleaners. More information can be found here.

Go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and hit enter. In the Add Remove Programs. click on Add Remove Windows Components on the Left side. Uncheck Outlook Express and Next and Restart the computer. Once the computer restarts. Go back to Add Remove/ Windows Components and put a check box back next to OE, next and it will reinstall OE.

As the description states, all that does is Adds or removes access to Outlook Express from the Start menu, it does not re-install any of the
files.

Some things to try:
Run the System File Checker - Start | Run, type SFC /SCANNOW, press Enter. You'll likely need your XP CD

Re-register Outlook Express and the DLLs it uses:
Click Start | Run, type cmd, press Enter. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after each one:
msimn /reg
regsvr32 urlmon.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll


Re-install SP2 or SP3 by downloading the Network Install package for the SP you want to re-install
SP2 SP3.

If you have IE7 or IE8, uninstall then re-install.

If you have IE7 or IE8, uninstall so you are back to IE6, then re-install IE6 SP1
You may need to edit the registry to allow it to re-install, steps for that as well as links to the IE6+SP1 download can be found here:
https://email.about.com/od/outlookexp...install_oe.htm
Then re-install IE7 or IE8

You can also try re-installing the Visual C++ Runtime files:
In Add/Remove programs, uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library entries that are there (if any), then download and re-install them. Only re-install the ones you uninstall:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP 1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP 1 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP 1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP 1 Redistributable Package (x64)
