I have XP Home, Outlook 2003, cable modem.  Everything works fine except when I right click and image choose "send to mail recipient", the internet connection wizard started coming up everytime.

Any suggestions on how to stop this from happening?

In the local policy - Start, Run, type gpedit.msc <hit enter>, disable the Internet Connection Wizard:

I tried solution and got a msg saying Windows cannot find gpedit.msc.
I am running the home version of XP.  Everything else works fine except for this.

What happens when you choose "I want to setup my internet connection manually...", Next, "I connect through a local area network", Next.
Then don't select any proxy - and continue to Finish.

It shouldn't reappear after that.
