SYMPTOMS

When you check the spelling in an e-mail message that uses the Portuguese (Brazil) language, Microsoft Outlook Express 6 for Windows may unexpectedly quit with the following error message:
c0000005 (access violation)

CAUSE

This problem may occur if the e-mail message contains two numbers that are the same and that are separated by a hyphen (for example, 50-50). The issue is caused by a problem with the Microsoft Office 2000 Portuguese (Brazil) Proofing Tools.
