    OE Paper Clip (6.0.0.2800.1123)

    I recently had to repair Windows XP Home Edition, my version of OE is as appears above. It used to show Windows XP SP1, perhaps that's the reason I don't see a paper clip when I'm sent mail that asks me to click on the above Paper Clip.

    This is a two- part request for help. How do I get the OE WinXP SP1 version of OE?

    How do I get the paper clip to become visible again?

    I'll apppreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks for your help.

    As far as I know, Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer, so your original version will depend on what was shipped with your XP.

    I would tried a re-install of IE - I'm pretty certain that has been covered in the IE forum.

    OE is definitely an integral part of Windows, if in doubt, try and remove it.

    I do know how to re-install IE and that's exactly what I will do. I should have done that before I posted here. Thanks for heads up.

    I don't understand what you mean by OE is definitely an integral part of Windows, if in doubt, try and remove it."
    On my XP, Outlook Express can be uninstalled via Add or Remove Programs > Windows Components.

    I think there's a mistake somewhere, post 356,039 has nothing to do with the subject.
    Am I missing something or was there a mistake in the number of the post?

    >On my XP, Outlook Express can be uninstalled

    FWIW to me "uninstall" means completely remove from the Operating System. Does not the caption to Add or Remove Programs > Windows Components simply say Adds or removes access to Outlook Express from the Start Menu - somewhat similarly to the entry for IE Adds or removes access to Internet Explorer from the Start Menu and Desktop? AFAIK badly coded scripts will activate OE (rather than the default e-mail program) even though the Add or Remove Programs applet remove option has been run. <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    Mea culpa - it does indeed.

    However, instructions for 'manually' removing OE abound - such as here at The Elder Geek and TweakXP.

    Opps! Caught with my hand in the cookie jar again.
    I checked Add or Remove Programs and never thought to look at Windows Components. I believed it was like Internet Explorer and Windows, glued together and you couldn't seperate one from the other. When I had only the one Browser (IE), I often wondered how you could uninstall IE and download and install another one like Firefox. Then I discovered that it was impossible to remove IE, or am I incorrect about that assumption too?
    I don't know enough about computers to make correct posts, so I'll keep my fingers off the keyboard in the future.
