It's said that other browsers use aspects of IE such as HTML and would affect Outlook if you use that email.

Shane has released 4.3.1 which should hopefully run on XP now.

Thanks, Boggin.  I was able to use the newest version of the Windows Repair Tool, but only after quickly starting the program a second time while the registry scan was still in progress. After that, the repair portion of the program ran successfully, but I still got an error message about the failed registry scan.  I'm not sure, but I think this could be due to another error message that I receive at startup about a missing program (.NET Framework 4.0.30319) and the need to reinstall it on the computer.  That program might have been removed by a disk cleanup program that I recently used.  I tried to reinstall the NET Framework program from the Microsoft website, and that attempt initially appeared to have been successful.  Nevertheless, the error message about .NET Framework 4.0.30319 still appears when the computer is restarted, and since Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, it's possible that the .NET Framework reinstallation program can't work properly with my operating system.  I think it's perhaps that missing program that is the real problem, and if there's a way to reinstall it, I'd appreciate knowing about it.  Many thanks.

If that version of .NET Framework is for XP then it should install.

See what the .NET Framework Repair Tool makes of it - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=30135

While I haven't got my Win 7 machine on at the moment, I think on that, .NET Framework and its version are listed in Programs and Features where you can normally right click on and select repair, but see what that repair tool can do.

As you said, the Microsoft download page you recommended should work.  After all, the system requirements include Windows XP, and when I run the program, it shows the download/repair as having been successfully completed.  However, the same error message still appears at startup, and some programs (e.g., IDrive) won't load without .NET Framework 4.0.30319.  I therefore thought that, since XP has not been supported by Microsoft for several years, XP was mistakenly still listed among the system requirements for the .NET Framework program to work.
