actually deleted the potentially corrupted files befoer reinstalling 
sapi 5 but i still get this error mesage:

begin quote

Speech Properties
The requested task cannot be carried out because the necessary engine 
could not be created.  Please select a
different engine and/or a different audio device.
OK
