Logging into a software product with a web interface opens Front Page

I have an application that uses a web page for the user interface.  When I click log in it normally opens an IE browser window using http://127.0.0.1 for the local host.  After installing FP, whenever I click login, it opens FP instead of IE.  I did not change any settings to make FP my default browser or anything.  I do not have any sites pointing to the other application.  When I uninstall FP it works normally.  Does FT use 127.0.0.1 for anything? and is there some way to modify it?

A few things to try:

1) Install FrontPage with your internet connection turned-off

2) Open the page by entering http://machinename vice http://127.0.0.1 (if this works then do option 3)

3) Add the localhost to your host file on the local machine

c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Open the file with notepad and modify the line

127.0.0.1       localhost

to read

127.0.0.1       localhost    yourmachinename
Right click on my computer, properties, network identification to get machine name

4) Verify your Internet Explorer settings to ensure http://127.0.0.1 is added to the Local Intranet Zone

On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
In the Internet Options window, click on the Security.
In the list, click Local Intranet, and then click Sites.
In the Local Intranet window, click Advanced.
In the Add This Web Site To This Zone box, add "http://127.0.0.1" and click Add.
Click OK.
Click OK, and then click OK again (to get back to the browser).
Restart Internet Explorer and try to browse the site again.

Hope this helps. If one corrects your problem please let me know which one corrected it.

It appears that adding the machine name to the list did the trick.  Thanks.
