Office XP and outlook

I just installed and registered Office XP.  When I open Outlook and click on a URL that someone has sent me, I get the standard Windows error messag:

Program Not Found

Windows cannot find PROGRAM.exe.

This program is needed for opening files of
type 'URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol'.

Location of PROGRAM.exe:
<standard windows text box>
[OK][Cancel][Locate]

I've looked through all of the options and cannot figure out what outlook is looking for.  If I click on Cancel then a standard IE window opens up.

How do I stop the error message from coming up?

In addition, how do I make Outlook XP automatically connect to my ISP and check my mail for me?

btw, I'm using IE 5.5.

Thanks

"Windows cannot find PROGRAM.exe" suggests that your security settings preclude enabling hyperlinks(which the Outlook XP and Outlook 2000 SP2 engines treat as executables).  Need to open up your IE/Outlook security settings and enable this,

Outlook XP can be set to automatically dial your ISP and connect to the pop/IMAP server, but you have to enable it (this is by dial up...I don't know what the exact solution is for DSL or cable, but it's probably similar.  Hopefully someone else can answer)
When you set up your email account (via Tools -> email accounts) and enter all of the user, logon, and server information you can click the More Settings... button (greyed out by default).  That brings up a window where you select your connection type and can specify dial when not connected (so everytime IE or outlook is launched it will dial if no connection exists).

Good luck

Sorry it took so long to award these points.  I completely forgot that I had even posted this question.  I re-installed outlook and it fixed my problem but I am giving you the points anyway.

Thanks
