I have one problem and one question

I installed and uninstalled XP Home SP-3 several times trying to uninstall IE-8. It didn't install correctly and I couldn't access the internet. I then reverted back to IE-6 and also installed Foxfire v3.0.10.

Problem:
Now I have two identical "ADD/Remove Programs" in my Control Panel. I can't delete one of them.

Question:
When IE-6 was installed, using Yahoo.com as my home page, I was able to access my Outlook Express mail and Yahoo mail from the tool bar. Now that I installed Foxfire v3.0.10 (with Yahoo.com as home page) I canít access Outlook Express. Is there any way I can add a link to it on the tool bar?

It's in the registry, I wouldn't worry about it.

In outlook's settings there should be a option to tell the system to use outlook as your primary email client.

Thanks for the response.
About the question.
There are two mail icons when I open IE (Yahoo being my home page).



I can access Outlook Express from the mail icon on Yahoo-IE’s tool bar, my start menu, and from the desktop icon.
I think that since Outlook & IE are Microsoft products I’m able to access both mails from my same home page window.
I thought I might be able to access both mails with FoxFire.

IE is linked to ether hotmail or Outlook depending how you have the settings. The other lower right Mail icon is part of the yahoo Toolbar is it's linked to take you to the Yahoo web based mail site.

Firefox is will act the same as IE unless you select a different mail client like Thunderbird as your primary client.

I'm sorry that I'm being so lame about this.
When using IE as my browser & Yahoo as my homepage there are two email icons, Outlook Express + Yahoo email (Img in Post#3).
Using Firefox as my browser & Yahoo as my homepage there is only one email icon, this connects me to my Yahoo mail account,




Even though:
Tools>Options> Applications>mailto shows "Use Outlook Express (default)"


Is it possible to access both email accounts from the Firefox/Yahoo combo, just like the IE/Yahoo combo??

Nope

The options on the bottom picture just lets you set to where the mailto link is so if you click on a email address on a website it will open Outlook.
