Default Drag and drop link stopped working

I reinstalled Windows XP SP3 just about 10 days ago, and the drag and drop
of links in OE was working. I went about installing other programs on my
computer and installing Windows and Office 2007 updates as I had to after
a
reinstall of the OS. Then I suddenly found that OE's drag and drop had
stopped working. Something probably crippled it - I don't know what. I
tried System Restore, but a bunch of differfent restore points failed
giving the message that restore could not be completed.


Uh-oh...

Did you do a Repair Install or a format & clean install? Had IE7 or IE8
been installed when you "reinstalled" WinXP?


Clean install from WinXP SP3 disk. It installed IE6, which I upgraded to IE7.

Did any of the Restore Points predate the install of SP3, the post-SP3
updates, and/or the Office updates?


The earliest Restore point dates to after Office updates.

Did you uninstall SP3, the post-SP3 updates, and/or the Office updates (in
reverse order) prior to using System Restore?


No.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed SP3 and/or IE7 or IE8 after you'd
"reinstalled" Windows?


AVG Free, ZoneAlarm. AVG was running when installing IE7. Don't remember
about ZA.

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?


Norton Ghost 9 was installed after all Windows updates were installed.

If the drag & drop behavior worked before all this updating, I think there's
a very good chance that OE was running in the Internet zone, Paul. The big
question is: Did /you/ make the change (from Restricted Sites zone to
Internet zone) or did hijackware do it?


Will Windows repair install help? No harm done if I try it, right?

Default Drag and drop link stopped working

Sure, you can try a Repair Install but I don't think doing so will enabled
"drag & drop" for links if (a) OE's running in the default Restricted Sites
zone (which it should be) and (b) you do NOT enable "drag&drop/copy&paste"
(which I would NOT recommend doing).

NB: The fact that AVG & possibly ZA were running in the background when you
installed IE7 may have screwed the pooch. If so, I'd doubt that a Repair
Install would correct anything.

Assuming that OE is running in the Restricted Zone (which is the
default) go into IE Internet Options, Security, select the Restricted
Zone and make sure that drag-and-drop is set to ENABLE. It won't work
if set to Prompt.

I just tested OE6 with IE7 and it works with that setting.

Windows Mail is a Vista only application.

There is Windows Live Mail (WLM) which can be downloaded and runs on XP,
Vista and Windows 7.

By the way, the same settings (Read in Plain Text and drag-and-drop IE
Restricted Zone security setting) have the same effect in WLM as to
whether or not you can drag links to IE.

I have not selected the Read All Message In Plain Text option. I am
trying to
drag web links from HTML emails in OE6 to the IE7 window but dragging
stopped
working. It worked all the time until just a couple of days ago.

Maybe the quickest way to fix the problem will be to reinstall OE6
because
that hopefully will remove all the existing settings in the Windows
registry
related to how OE6 works on my computer. How do I reinstall OE6?

Another question - is Windows Mail better than OE6? If so, can I
install WM
considering that I have Windows XP SP3? Where can I download WM from?

Thanks.

For security reasons, the Read All Messages in Plain Text uses the
RICHED DLL rather than MSHTML DLL. RICHED has much less
functionality
than MSHTML and so is less likely to have security holes.

Default Drag and drop link stopped working

oops Sorry about that, Paul. My bad. (But I don't think it's a wise
idea to enable Drag & Drop for Restricted Sites zone, despite the
convenience you seek, as it will apply to possibly-unsafe/risky web-pages
as well.)

[Thanks, Michael.]

It might be an automation issue. Do you have any other drag and drop
problems? Try going to Start | Run and type:

regsvr32 ole.dll

regsvr32 ole32.dll

and see if that makes any difference. If not then try
