Service pack 3: Fatal Error in Outlook Express

Hi:

I and my girlfriend both use the same laptop.

After I installed Service pack 3 (I still use XP), my girlfriend is having
problems with Outlook Express, within her login, although I am not. I am an
administrator; she is not. Her Outlook Express keeps having a fatal error and
needs to close. I do not seem to have this issue in my login.

Some of the details of the error are:

Error Signature

AppName: msimn.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.5512 ModName: fsscgui.dll
Modver: 6.80.2750.0 Offset: 00017593

.... Any ideas for fixing this?

Thanks very much,

Wayne

Since fsscgui.dll seems to be related to F-Secure applications, you
may want to try searching on this end and check with F-Secure's
support.

Bye,

fsscgui.dll belongs to F-Secure:
http://forum.f-secure.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6639

The F-Secure plugin for Office is causing the issue.
Scanning incoming email is redundant, eg. if one attempts to open an
infected attachment, the antivirus will either quarantine or delete it,
depending upon the AVs settings. As long as the AV is kept up to date
with it's latest definitions, then scanning incoming emails presents
more issues than it's worth.

[X-post to OE General]

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application (F-Secure). It
provides no additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:

<QP>
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.

Thanks very much for this suggestion. I had in fact installed a newer version
of FF Secure just prior to Service Pack 3, but didn't think they were
related. (Maybe they weren't; possibly FF Secure only became an issue after
Service Pack 3 was installed.)

In any case, I can certainly try uninstalling and re-installing the new FF
Secure version over Service Pack 3, instead of the other way around.

Apologies, I had intended this reply for the first respondant, Ottmar
Freudenberger. Unfortunately it ended up here, so I obviously hit something
wrong. However, I did appreciate your response as well.

Regards,

Wayne
