Upgrade InternetExplorer=problem in OutlookExpress

  RichyBoy 17:54 06 Dec 2006


Yesterday I had a message asking if I'd like to download the latest version of Internet explorer. I did so, noticing the icon on my screen now has a gold ring around it.

Unfortunately I now have a problem with Outlook express. Every time I try to sychronise with my Hotmail account, I get a box popping up asking for my account name and password. Its already filled out, but when I click ok, it just pops back up again.Deleting the name and password and then filling it in again makes no difference. This means I cant syc up with my hotmail anymore.

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, what can I do to stop this very annoying message.

Hi, if you uninstall IE7 in Control Panel Add/Remove, you will automatically revert to IE6.

Thanks so much Technotiger.

That was so simple and yet so effective!

If only everything in life was!
