Outlook 2003 error-dnswp32.dll

Whenever I launch Outlook 2003 on my PC, I get a popup window that says "The add-in "C:WindowsSystem32dnswp32.dll" could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Detect and Repair on the Help menu." I have run the Detect and Repair to no avail. I did run the Windows and Office updates a couple of days ago (right before this started), but I'm not sure which update did this. I've done searches on Google and on Microsoft's site for 'dnswp32' and 'dnswp32.dll', but came up empty. Does anyone have any idea as to what's causing this error? Once I acknowledge it, Outlook loads fine, but it's annoying. Thanks for any ideas you may have.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve seen similiar issues, all related to either Spyware ot Hotbot tool bar crap. Or a Anti-Spybot that rips out spyware rather rudely and leaves beind trails. Scan with Spy toll also go to online scanning and double check against two or three brands.

    Your right, not much info to go off of regarding "dnswp32.dll". As poomba mentioned, perform a thurough system scan for spyware to make sure your PC is clean of any infection. If this does not resolve the issue, and you have a record of the recent updates applied, you can remove the updates from your PC one by one and see if the problem goes away. If so, then you'll know which update was most likely the culprit. Another suggestion that has cured many failed patch/upgrade installs is to re-install the latest service pack for either office ot the OS. Sometimes files can become corrupt during an upgrade or patch install and re-running the service pack may correct them. Good luck!

    You can also try to see which add-in is running this dll. Go into Tools/Options and under the Other tab choose Advanced Options. There you will see buttons to the add-ins. On those tabs you can turn off the add-ins individually and restart Outlook to see what effect turning off each one has.
