    the way I would do it is go to control panel, add remove programs, hit windows component icon then remove the tick. This should uninstal IE, then reinstall. or you could try installing Mozilla Firefox I use that more now has a better built in pop stopper and download manager. Afterall IE is based on mozilla. get it here http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    ** If you're happy working in the registry** this will get you around the problem..

    Click Start > Run > Regedit > OK

    Open up the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}


    right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify.

    Change the value data from 1 to 0, and then click OK.

    Quit Regedit, then reinstall Outlook.. You shouldn't get the error this time..


    ( Entirely at your own risk of course.. ;) )
