I had earlier talked about this problem here http://www.wapopia.com/blog/2007/06/20/outlook-express-corrupted/

This exact message that I was getting was
Address Book failed to load. Outlook Express is incorrectly configured, please re-install.

Anyway I found a solution for this at MS website according to which I followed the setps

1. Click Start, point to Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
2. In the Search for files named box, type: *.wab
3. Set the Look In box to include your local drives and click Find Now.
4. Click the .wab file that you find. On the File menu, click Properties.
5. In the Properties dialog box, under Attributes, clear the Read-only check box.
6. Click Apply, and then click OK.

But the file wab file already had the read-only check box cleared and this exercise didn’t provide any results

As I had no contacts in my address book so I tried by deleting the present *wab file and miraculously after that my outlook started functionally properly, it created another wab file for itself and now all functions are working correctly.

Conclusion : If your outlook is corrupted and you have tried the methods listed here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269777 than try by deleting your address book file ( it isn’t working anyway ) , my be your problem will be resolved
