My normal habit is to launch Outlook Express followed by Internet Explorer. You know... a person just likes to have things arranged on their Task Bar in the same order day-in-day-out :rolleyes:

Well, the other night I upgraded to IE6 which, naturally, also upgraded my OE to 6. Now, if I launch OE first, it will not connect to the internet. If, however, I launch IE and then OE, it comes up without issue. (Comcast via Cable Modem; Win 98)

What's up with that????? :mad:

Try going through the options menu in tools, then click on the connections tab and then go to Internet Connection settings, click change, then make sure your dial up account is set to always dial my default connection.

Not sure what else it could be.

Here's a little update -- sometimes Outlook Express loads as it should and sometimes it hangs.... :mad: But, even if it hangs, Internet Explorer will launch properly and OE will as well, once I end task and relaunch

Click Start, and then click Run.
Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK

then do the same for regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
