    i am using right now MyIE2 the onlyu problem i had is that if someone send me a link thru Messenger 6, when i click it it opens in IE instead f MyIE2, how can i change that so it opens in MyIE2?

    MyIE2 is currently my default browser it open any link i open with the exception of those via MSN, any ideas?

    I believe that MSN launches IE rather than launching the link via the URL protocol as other apps do, therefore it's not possible. I may be wrong though.

    could it because MyIE2 is a derivative of IE? whereas Firebird is its own entity. only thing i can think of.

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.html]
    "PerceivedType"="text"
    @="MyIEHTML"
    "Content Type"="text/html"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.htm]
    "PerceivedType"="text"
    @="MyIEHTML"
    "Content Type"="text/html"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyIEHTML\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\MYIE2\\MyIE.exe,0"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyIEHTML\Shell]
    @=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyIEHTML\Shell\open]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyIEHTML\Shell\open\command]
