Thanks for your replies.
I tried uninstaling NIS and freshly installing Outlook Express 6. That
didn't work. There are no Windows updates to apply for the system.
The only two features I want to use are the firewall and parental
controls for web surfing. There doesn't seem to be any way to keep the
anti-spam portion of NIS from attaching itself to Outlook Express
during the NIS install.
I'm thinking about attempting to roll back to an older version of
Outlook Express, but I'm not sure there is a clean way to uninstall 6
and reinstall 5.x.
thanks again... any other ideas would be appreciated.
A guess: uninstall NIS, make sure all the patches for IE and EO6 are
installed, then and reinstall it on TOP of OE6.
Have you tried disabling anti-spam. Try it and see what happens.
