Picasa and IE

I've just been raving about Picasa but now find I can't connect to IE, to get here I've had to open Outlook Express first. Any ideas please. I wouldn't want to uninstall Picasa.

What actually happens when you try to start Internet Explorer? What type of connection do you have?

I tried Picasa on a Win 2000 machine and ended up uninstalling it again. It tried to take over every picture on the computer including icons,mpegs etc no matter what way I set it up. I also had problems with it opening when I clicked on other applications . In my opinion it's a bit invasive.

I was getting "This page can not be displayed". I then found my Internet connection had gone to Never Dial a connection. I uninstalled Picasa then thought I'd give it another try. My internet settings seem ok now. I know what Irishman means everything to do with pictures appears to have it's own album but we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the replies.

As Vog says "what actually happens.

As picassa only links to the images on the hard-drive (it doesn't actually move any)They remain in the original folder, so, I'm not sure how it can be called invasive

I've Green ticked far too soon.

It's happened again. If I click on the IE icon I don't get a connection just the white page saying This page can not be displayed.

It appears not to work after opening Picasa then closing it.

I'm on dial up and using XP.
