I'm running Windows XP. I have removed Internet Explorer and use Firefox exclusively. I cannot print from Outlook Express. When I try to print, nothing happens. I can print from Firefox. Must I reinstall Internet Explorer in order to print from Outlook Express?
Thanks in advance.

Hi anonomy -

How did you Fully remove Internet Explorer - If you go to Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer > My Computer > Local Disc > Program Files -
Look down the list and see if Internet Explorer is still listed - If it is then it still, and always did exist -
That is the long way , but easy to explain -

Thanks -

Thanks for your reply. I went to Add Remove Programs and sure enough there are remnants of IE listed there. Then I went to C:/Programs and found that many IE files, including the .exe file is still listed there. I tried clicking on the .exe file and nothing happened.

Thanks for your help

IMPO, I would never ever remove IE from any windows install. You may need it for a site to function properly. I would recommend reinstalling IE and keeping it updated.

Why did you completely remove IE, just curious is all?

Hi anonomy,

Make sure that Internet explorer and Firefox are closed.

Go to Start > Run and type "regsvr32 ole32.dll" in the box. 'Note the space'

Click OK and then try to print from Outlook Express again.

Do post your results (if working or not) for any further help. Happy Computing :thumbsup:

You have Mozilla's browser so why not try their Thunderbird email program where you could print from there instead? I use it and Firefox since I prefer them over Microsoft's IE and OE.

Hi anonomy -
HERE is the correct link to install Internet Explorer 8 - You should always leave it there even if not used -
Then go to Microsoft updates and make sure you have all the required updates - Even if never used you will (can) get all updates -

Thank You - :thumbsup:

Outlook Express...is part of IE.

To eliminate key files from one...is probably the same as screwing up the other.
