    I have tried to reset IE through TOOLS, INTERNET OPTIONS, PROGRAMS, choosing OUTLOOK EXPRESS, however, this does not work. That pesky AOL program tries to load whenever I try to use someone's website form or link to e-mail, and I can't make it stop. Can someone please make it stop? :eek: Thanks.

    addendum: Okay, through some research, I found that AOL made an apparent permanent association with e-mail when I use IE as a browser. In AOL's Settings, it says that you can review or change the settings by clicking on Set-Up, but it lies. Now my question is: Do you think I will have to un-install AOL and re-install it in order to get rid of the problem. I know some of you will suggest that unstalling AOL and not re-installing it would be a better solution, but too many people have used that e-mail addy for too long for me to want to change it, at least at this point. Thanks again.

    With Internet explorer open go to tools, internet options, then programs and make sure it says outlook express next to email!
