    When I want to send a link to someone of a webpage in my IE browser, Outlook Express comes up. I use Outlook for everything and it is reflected in my "Programs- Internet Options". I took it off, put something else in, rebooted and then took that off and put in OUTLOOK again, and it still comes up "outlook express" when I send a link.

    Also, maybe this is related: When I right click the internet address so I can at least paste it in an email, I can copy it , but the paste is greyed out when I want to paste it into the body of an email to send to someone

    HELP !!! :(

    Make sure before you paste that the cursor is active . In other words click on it before pasting even though it looks OK This should eliminate the grey-out and allow a paste .

    Ok guys, thanks for your suggestions! Natcom: I have checked that, and the program is showing as "Microsoft Outlook". I have tried to take it out, put it back in, etc at the place you suggest, and even though it says, Outlook, Express comes up every time. Dust Sailor: You may have solved the problem. I made sure the curor is blinking, and sure enough, it worked!
    Now, if I can solve the Outlook - Outlook Express problem! Thanks again to you both!
