I am running W98SE w/IE 5.01 and OE5. The last two days my Outlook express has been giving me fits. When I sent an OE stationary, a window opened saying that it was attempting to find something in Front Page 2000 (the stationary was downloaded from MS and has nothing to do with FP2000 that I am aware of, also, I do not think FP2000 has any mail sending capabilities. I closed the FP window, then another window opened saying it could not find the searched for item in FP2000, after I closed that window, then OE performed the spell check and sent the message. It did this everytime I sent a message after that, whether or not it had any stationary. I uninstalled FP2000, that got rid of that problem. Now today, if I click on a hotlink in a message, I get a window that tells me it can't do it because OE is not my default mail program, I go to tools/options/general tab and it says OE is NOT my default for mail messages, I click on "Make Default"/Apply/OK. Go back to check and it again tells me that it is not the default, did this numerous times to no avail. The last time I closed OE, I got the BSofD with the following messages (each time I pushed "Enter" I got a different message)(Continued next page)

"A Fatal Exception OE has occurred at 0028 :C0006EB2 in VXD VMM(01)=00005EB2"
"A Fatal Exception OD has occurred at 0297 :015F8861
After pushing Enter 7 times, the Blue screen went away and left me with a window with a Red X on it that said the application had performed an Illegal operation and would be shut down, here is what I got when I clicked on "Details":
KERNEL32 caused a general protection fault

I could not close this little window and had to shut down manually.
I ran a thorough Scandisk and defragged, then re-booted. The scandisk said it had found errors and had corrected them all. No change in performance however.
Can anyone tell me how to get OE back as my default mailer and what I need to do to correct the above errors (if anything)?
I can still send and receive messages using OE, but would like to get rid of that warning and be able to use e-mail hotlinks that are in a message.
Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Hi Richard,....You might want to go back to the begining page (first website builder) and go to the bottom of the page where it says "Create New Conversation". That way it will be see faster because it will have it's own topic and not be hiding under mine. :-) Good Luck.

I did "Create New Conversation", it is not under your topic, however, it IS under Website Builder, which is not exactly the right subject. I quite possibly should have used "General Discussion" instead of "Webite Builder", but I am also confident that Josh or someone else will see the question and my plea for assistance. If not, then I am quite sure that I will live through it. I check this forum daily and usually use the "Last Day" link to access. If Josh uses that method to see who needs help, I am sure he will see my question.
I am sorry if you feel that I have infringed on YOUR territory, it was not done with any malice.

No problem here, I just thought it should have come up with a header all it's own the way mine did. That way it would be seen easier. We all need all the help we can get, that's why most of us are here right? ;-). When you first clicked on First website builder, did you go to the bottom of that page and click create new conversation? That way you should get your own "question" for all to see and get your answers quicker.
I don't have any territory here to "infringe" on.

I love that "Last Day" button. Dunno what I would do without it! Jeanine, you are right about the organization of the topics... but most folks just post anywhere anyway, which is ok too.
Richard, I don't know what to do with all that fatal exception error mess... greek to me. All I can suggest is a reinstall of OE. That should fix the problem. Then, run a System file checker (start/run, type in 'sfc' without quotes). Finally, run a disk cleanup (start/programs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup). The reinstall should correct any OE problems, the sfc should correct any currupt or messed up files, and the disk cleanup will make sure all of the frontpage junk is out of the way.
Hope that helps,

Thank you very much. I did what you said, plus, I up-graded to IE5.5/SP1, my computer problems seem to be solved at least for the moment. Now, if you would send me a certified check for about $2,000,000.00 all of my problems would be permanently solved. :o)
