    OE & Instant Messenger (IE 6 SP1)

    This annoying thing just started within the last week. Everytime I open Outlook Express , AOL Instant Messenger opens with it.
    I've searched options on OE and IM but can't find anything to stop it. What ties should OE have with IM?

    Will some kind soul help me get rid of this?

    Possibly you have set up AOL IM as your default messaging program - see the tip part way down this page.

    Re: OE & Instant Messenger (IE 6 SP1)

    Thank you, my friend. I've followed your link to PC Fear Factor and done as it suggested. I'll know if it works the next time I sign-on to IM. I now remember that in Set Program Access and Defaults, I also choose AIM as the default IM program. I will change it there also.

    If these changes don't work and I feel sure they will, I'll return and ask for another fix.
    Thanks for your help.

    Well, I'm back but with great news. AOL no longer opens when OE does. I'm really grateful that you sent me to the right article to take care of the problem.

    Thank you for your valuable assistance.
