Every time I start Outlook Express, I receive the message not able to delete file adp_inst. I know that this particular file is not present on the disk

After clicking OK to that message, everything works well.

This happen only on my wife's session, my session works OK.

This is a new problem, it was working before I change my antivirus from Mcafee to MS live onecare.

I would check the location of this file on your system, making sure it's in the C:\Windows directory as described above.

Every reference I find for this file...is mentioned in conjunction with malware and I cannot find any real info on it.

Agreed it seems to be spyware related.
Please scan your system with your Antivirus and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Home version from safe mode.
Let us know how it works out.
