    I installed Office 2000. I use Incredimail as my email program. After I installed the Office suite it changed my ability to use and reset my email program as the default.
    It says that I must have administrative privledges to do so. I am logged in as the administrator.
    Any ideas how to get this changed?
    Thanks

    You can TRY this:
    Open internet explorer and go to Tools-Internet options, Programs tab.
    Make sure your email program is in there.

    But you didn't tell us WHERE you were trying to set the default...

    Thanks for the reply. I had to uninstall and install Incredimail two times to get this to work. The same issue has happened on my laptop where I also installed Office 2000. I dont like the fact that M$ products take the liberty to change ones settings and defaults without asking so that you are driven to use their programs.
