    Every time I try to open my MS Outlook 2003, I receive the following error:

    Microsoft C++ Runtime Library

    Runtime Error!

    Program: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE

    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
    way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

    My only option at that point is to click OK. Then the application closes.
    When I tried to login again it, it allows me. After several login and logout,
    it happen again.

    Only when I disable the add-in on Antispam by Symantec, no such error
    appears. This probably happens when I created 2 profiles because I needed to
    receive 2 different emails into 2 different inbox. I remove the profile and
    created a New User and re-configure outlook 2003. The error message STILL
    appears occasionally.

    I understand that there is a fix for Internet Explorer Anyway to disable Runtime Error for

    I have tried searching on and found nothing useful. I came
    across a possible solution on (because I have Norton Anti-Virus
    and Norton Internet Security) and they said to run Live Update for the fix. I
    did that and it did not fix it.

    I also came across a possible solution that required changing a file
    extension. The file they said to change was C:\Program Files\Common
    Files\Symantec Shared\AntiSpam\MsouPlug.dll. I was to change the *.dll
    extension to *.old. This didn't work because my computer will not allow me to
    change it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  2. The problem is with Symantec, not outlook - you need to either disable the
    antispam addin or install a Symantec update that fixes it.
