Reading attachments, search engine

by magnumpi / June 24, 2004 10:17 AM PDT

I am able to open JPG's, MPG's, WMV's etc., however, I am unable to open any text attachments such as txt, doc etc. I utilize Outlook Express as my mail server.

Also, in Internet explorer, I am currently unable to change my search engine. It's currently www.vaio.net, and I would prefer to have msm.internet explorer.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Question #1. The article [Q306907] explains that when you click View, Source and then right-click menus, or you click the Edit button on the toolbar in Internet Explorer to view the source code of a Web page, the source code file may not appear as expected which can occur if there are too many files in the Temporary Internet Files (TIF) folder or if Notepad.exe is missing or damaged, and describes steps for troubleshooting the issue.

Question #2. By default, Internet Explorer for WinXP uses the Search Companion feature but can be set to use the IE5.0 Classic Internet Search, [Q303210].

3. In IE, you may see only a limited number of Web search engine selections which can occur if a language other than U.S. English (en-us) is listed first in the Languages settings Properties. This causes the search assistant to return search engines that are compatible with the browser's default language setting, [Q224323].

4. When you click "Search" in IE, a different Web site may be displayed instead of the expected, and can occur if the registry entries for Search has been modified. To resolve this issue, remove the registry entries, [Q323869].
