    When trying to download stationery for Outlook Express and Microsoft Product updates, I get error, "Error Locating Object Handler - There is no viewer available for the type of object you are trying to open."

    address of object: http://208.62.161.143/stationery6/stationery7
    Content type: application/octet-stream
    Possible location of viewer: Microsoft Active X gallery
    Do you want to go to this location to download?

    When I click yes, it takes me to this -

    Welcome to Microsoft ActiveX Controls Gallery
    Macromedia Flash Player Control
    Macromedia Shockwave Control
    Microsoft Agent Control
    Microsoft Chat Control
    Microsoft DHTML Editing Control
    Microsoft DirectX Files Viewer Control
    Microsoft HTML Help Control
    Microsoft Instant Messaging Service (IM) Contact View Control
    Microsoft Investor Ticker Control
    Microsoft Loan Amortize Control
    Microsoft NetMeeting UI Control
    Microsoft PowerPoint Animation Player Control
    Microsoft Snapshot Viewer Control
    Microsoft Surround Video Control
    Microsoft Windows Media Player Control

    But all these items seem to be installed already or nothing happens when I try to install.

    Same for Product updates: application:/X-microsoft

    Has no viewer.

    I have win98se - oe5.0

    Any ideas????

    Whoo, hoo!! Rollin Rog you are the greatest. Fixed the problem by deleting the plug in "Extension" and was oh so careful to make sure I deleted extension not extensions (plural). Thanks for the added tip! Now do as the dormouse said, feed your head.

    Thanks again!!!
