Maybe try this, might work for Outlook as well

This is most likely because one or more of the following files is missing, damaged, or improperly registered:

* Urlmon.dll
* Mshtml.dll
* Actxprxy.dll
* Oleaut32.dll
* Shell32.dll
* Shdocvw.dll

Hmmm...read the Links which I thank you for. I checked and IE 7 is my default browser. Everything is working OK for me except the opening of a 'html' Link and I am wondering what other possible damage I could create by trying the possible remedy?
I did a scannow and nothing showed up.
All my M$ updates are complete.
B/C I don't use System Restore points I get a little edgy about doing something to change things, thus I am wondering how to keep damage under control !
BTW, I have used Kaspersky and Prevxx Edge for several years now.... actually the latter is the new version and I have had no issues until this 'glitch' showed up.
Thank you for your interest and wondering if there maybe any other comments.

Hi, sorry for the delay in the reply. I have been in a project here.
I wanted to post what ended up being the solution to my issue of my incoming Outlook 3 emails being converted from 'html' to 'plain text' ...which I hope never happens to another member as having to search through the Junk Mail for a few days was a pain.
It ended up that my ISP server was fiddling with settings which affected incoming mail. I phoned them and now everything is OK.
I always like to close off my threads when I find a solution to my problem in the event that it may help other members.
I thank members who tried to help as it indeed means a lot when one is 'out at sea' with a problem to solve! (It's nice to know that one is not alone!!)
