I started another thread on this awhile back but it got lost in the shuffle, so I'm trying again.
OE6 is no longer my default email client. If I try to click on an email addy to get the whole address when I'm in OE I get "OE could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed." When I try to click on an email link on a web page nothing happens, so I have to copy and paste - that is if there's an email addy. If it just says "Contact Us" I'm stuck.
I've triple checked the usual places: Control panel, OE options, IE options. OE does not even show up on the drop down menus, or anywhere else. Someone suggested that I uninstall and reinstall IE, but when I start it tells me all these programs depend on it.. Flash, Photoshop, security updates, hot fixes.. the list goes on. My question is, will I have to re-download all that stuff (the patches, etc) and will I damage or make unstable the other programs/applications if I do the reinstall? Or can I ignore that mssg?
I hope I'm in the right place and have provided enough info. I've had this problem for awhile and I'm on the net a lot so it's a feature I use often and would like to get fixed. Any help is appreciated!
