Question
Dear David
Could you please help
When I try to open MS Outlook 2002, I often get the following error message, and the email program will not open

Runtime error visual C++ runtime library
C:\progra~1\micros~2\office10\OUTLOOK.EXE

Or

Microsoft visual C++ Debug Library
Program C:\progra~1\micros~2\office10\OUTLOOK.EXE
Abnormal program termination

Thanks, Best Regards, Graham Young

Answer
Graham, Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, error messages have many causes. Microsoft does not do a good job of detecting or reporting errors, so by the time the error is detected it is frequently too late for Windows to report anything meaningful.

You might consider taking your computer system into a computer store for a checkup. Expect to pay for this service, though.
