I have been having problems on and off for the last month with OE and have just posted the last problem.
As an after thought!
Can I re-install windows over the top and correct any corrupted files in OE, or would it be a good idea to change to Thunderbird ? is it any good?
win2k pro, firefox, home built.

If you are having problems only with Internet Explorer 6, proceed as follows:

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
Data Type: DWORD // Value Name: IsInstalled
Setting for Value Data: [Change the Value from 1 to 0]
Exit Registry

If you are having problems only with Outlook Express 6, proceed as follows:

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
Data Type: DWORD // Value Name: IsInstalled
Setting for Value Data: [Change the Value from 1 to 0]
Exit Registry

If you are having problems with both Internet Explorer 6 and Outlook Express 6, proceed as follows:

Change the values in both of the registry keys as outlined above.
Exit Registry

Once you have made the appropriate registry changes use the link below to download and install Internet Explorer 6. The Internet Explorer 6 download includes Outlook Express 6. Reboot and test for proper operation.

Fruit bat/\0/Thanks for the advice as my problem is only with OE 6.
I accessed the registry as instructed. see below.

<No name> reg_sz:microsoft oe 6
cloneuser:reg_DWORD:0x1
component ID:reg_SZ:mail news
IsInstalled:reg_DWORD:0x1
local:reg_SZ:EN
Stub path:reg_expand_SZ:"%program files%\outlook express\setup 50.exe"/app:oe/caller:winnit/user/install version:reg_SZ:6,0,2800,1106.

What and how do I need to change.
regards and many thanks
