Critical Error Statistics
Statistics show that around 90% of all computers suffer from critical registry errors that put them at serious risk.
If you've seen Outlook Express Error Code 0x800CCC78 then you've probably seen some of this stuff too:
That's what I hear almost every time I answer the phone. Yesterday, I received a phone call from a lady who started getting outlook express error code 0x800CCC78 message and she decided it was time to fix the issue before it went south. With that being said, I thought I'd share the info here.
What causes Outlook Express Error Code 0x800CCC78
There are several possibilities for getting error code 0x800CCC78. Sometimes it's because of soemthing destructive such as viruses, malware, spyware, adware or could be as simple as a corrupt program. It can also be caused by installing or upgrading a new application without completely removing some conflicting application. Because this could cause registry corruption or data file corruption or mis-linked files, you see error screens.(I talked about using Perfect Uninstaller for application removal)
Back in the day, I'd spend many hours fumbling my way through the spiderweb that is known as "windows registry" deleting accumulated bad entries. Thanks to new technology, it's as easy as installing a registry tool to resolve registry errors and that is the fastest solution to this problem. There's no need to be "technical" any longer.
After you download the tool, simply press the scan button and let the application do it's thing. When it's done, just tell it to clean up that messed up registry and fix that error.. FINALLY.
Another note on the windows registry...
You can seriously jack up your registry by trying to fumble through it and remove entries. Sometimes, even directions on a webpage may not be specific enough to walk you through it. One wrongly deleted key and you find yourself re-installing windows. You should definitely use the tool I use and recommend.
Another leading cause of Error Code 0x800CCC78
Another cause of this error could be spyware, adware, or malware. This is something very real plaguing the internet today and can cause a variety of weird errors and problems with your windows PC. I've seen everything from 20 pop-ups a second until the system crashes to fake blue screens and errors in the name of selling you their product. I recommend using something that you've probably heard of though. That product is good old fashioned Ad Aware. It's been around for years and does a great job. While the free version cleans up some things, it doesn't even compare to the paid version.
Well, I hope this info helps out someone out there. Please post a comment to let me know if it does!

Thanks for this post man. This post is just what the doctor ordered. I usually can resolve most of these issues without some tool, but this one was killing me. The registry tool did the trick!
