Outlook Express Links!

Recommended Posts

I first posted this problem on the G4TTV board but the thread was begining to go off-topic and off in different directions so I closed it. I'm posting here hoping for better results.

I can'open any links in OE. Attachments open ok and everything works fine in IE. My default browser is FireFox. If I set default to IE, links open ok in OE but I don't want IE as default browser. Solution anyone?

Thanks!

have you tried using another email client such as Mozilla's Thunderbird to see if you could get it working in there?

I believe I remember that thread over at G4.....correct me if I am wrong here....

You tried running all your up-to-date antivirus and spyware scans with no luck there. You checked your settings in OE and nothing looked out of place. When you click on the link, you don't get any error messages or anything.....nothing happens.

Did you try posting a HJT log?

I know you said it's set as default browser, but please just bare with me...

Open OE.

Tools> Options> Connections> Change

Click the Programs tab.

Uncheck "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser."

Then:

In Firefox: Tools> Options> General> Click "Check Now"> Click "Yes"

That should do it.

You're on the right track, I ran all the updated scans, checked, rechecked, set and reset all the settings that were suggested by all the good people here but it still doesn't work and no error messages appear.

I didn't post a HJT log because no one suggested it so I figure it's not an HJT issue.

I found this: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=281679

Going thru the checks under Resolution:

[Q]RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem in Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

1. Quit all programs that are running.

2. Click Start, and then click Run.

3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.

4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):

* Shdocvw.dll

* Msjava.dll

* Actxprxy.dll

* Oleaut32.dll

* Mshtml.dll

* Browseui.dll

* Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)[/Q]

* Browesui.dll does nut check out and I get the following message:

RegSvr32

LoadLibrary("browesui.dll") failed. - The specified module could not be found.

Anyone know how I can correct this and will this solve my OE links problem?

Thank you!

You can get Browseui.dll here.

More info on this .dll, here.

Ok, I got the Browseui.dll file downloaded but I need help installing it in the right location. I don't fully understand the instructions in the DllDump.com FAQ.

Thanks!
