Sir,

I have been using Avant since 2 yrs.

My query is :-

My default browser is Avant, still Yahoo mail and Hotmail Inbox if accessed via respective messengers open in IE instead of Avant. Is there any way to fix this issue?

Regards

simv

MSN Messenger links won't open in Avant, just IE
SweetLou has posted a registry hack for working around this problem. Download the registry hack here & be sure to read the included install notes.

Also make sure that Avant --> Tools --> Avant Browser Options --> Files and Protocols --> everything is checked (enabled).

That link is no longer active. If someone wants the registry hack, PM me. I will post it on a new server soon.

Edit: Well, I tried that link and it does work. Hmmm, That was my ISP a while ago and have since moved and dropped that account. I wonder why it is still there?
