ISP Change Problem

By nikita2525 ·
I recently changed ISP's. The new one uses a different browser & mail program. I chose to stay with IE AND OE. I have made those changes myself, however, there is one nagging problem I can't fix. I need a tech head on this one. At the very top of my monitor where it says: OE or IE, "provided by", it retains the old ISP name. It doesn't affect any programs, it's just a pest to me. Shouldn't there be a command I can type in the run field, and the appropriate program to choose when asked, to make the change? Do I have to uninstall both programs & reinstall them? I'm at a standstill. Would appreciate some insightful input on this,...pretty please? :-)

There's no command you can run, because the information is stored in the registry. If you;re comfortable editing the registry, see these two links for instructions:

http://windows-help.net/windows95/oe-16.shtml

(Editing the registry involves running a program called regedit, and navigating an interface that looks a lot like Windows Explorer. If you try it, back up your registry first, by clicking on File, Export).
