I suspect this means that something went really wrong with the configuration
somehow.  The uninstall/install process doesn't touch the configuration
file, so that could still be causing the problem.  This file is located in
your Data directory - the troubleshooting guide explains how to find it.
It'll be called bayescustomize.ini.  You might need to delete that to start

This is interesting:

  1. Did you try using the "autoconfigure" program?  This isn't widely used,
and is still under development, which is why it's not mentioned anywhere,
although it does get installed.  Did it work for you prior to this?

  2. Was it when using the "autoconfigure" program that the problem
occurred?  The log seems to indicate this.

  3. What version of Outlook Express is this?  The error seems like it's
saying that OE's registry information doesn't look like it expects it to,
which probably means a different version.
