    I am running on Windows XP Professional (SP2 - with all current high
    priority patches installed). In Intenet Explorer - when I go into Internet
    Options and select the Programs Tab - I am unable to change the default
    program that Internet Explorer will use for the following programs:
    E-mail - Newsgroups - Internet Call - Calendar - Contact List.

    The list boxes are greyed out so that I cannot change.

    In addition, the checkbox to have IE check to see if it is the default
    browser is unchecked and disabled - so that it cannot be checked. I am
    guessing that this could be this way because of a registry setting or a
    policy setting. Other colleagues can change these options so I do not
    believe that this is a domain policy that is causing this issue.

    Any ideas or help is appreciated.
