Hi folks -

I did some work on the computer last night, and now when I load Outlook I get the following error:

"The add-in 'OLWatchECE.DLL' could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Detect & Repair on the Help menu."

Well, I used D&R and nothing changed. After you hit OK on the error pop-up everything loads and runs as normal, it doesn't seem to be having any effect on my Outlook besides annoyance.

What I did on the computer last night:

+ Uninstalled FolderShare and Syncing.NET
+ Used Autoruns.exe to clear autorun commands for FS and S.NET
+ MIGHT have used Autoruns.exe to stop Windows Messenger from auto-loading

The last bit might be the cause of my problem, I dunno. (Boy I sure sound smart!)

So: What is OLWatchECE.DLL, what does it do, and how can I reinstall/restore it (if need be)?

I could not find anything on this entry. That's usually a bad sign, but wait until others check in. If you think disabling the entries in Autoruns might have caused it, add them back, temporarily and see what happens

Another suggestion I found was: http://www.syncing.net/en/support/faqs.html#c321

Or, you might uninstall Outlook and then reinstall it?
