I don't wanna change my strings!
I know some folks will be coming to this thread just to say "ok, so don't change them then" but let me explain.
My little squier short scale jag has an absolutely perfect setup, and sounds great except for one thing - the E string is kinda dead. They're fender NPS rounds but this one string sounds almost like a flatwound.
I don't wanna change the strings because I'll lose this amazing set up and never be quite happy with it again, but I'm not sure I can deal with one dead string. I wish they all sounded like this.
Thoughts? What would you do?

Ok, so don't change them then.
.....or, put new strings on and set it up till you're happy with it.

Maybe boil the E string?

If you are going to put the same gauge strings back on ,it shouldn't change your set up. Even if it does , it should be very slight and not that much of a problem to tweak out. It's not that big of a deal so why play with a dead string?

Take them off and clean them with Ethel alcohol. It will kill the rest of them nicely ( get rid of the new string zing).

When you get a dead string you change them. You won't "lose" your setup...not quite sure where you got that idea. It might take awhile for the strings to break in to where you like them best but we all have to live with that.

Just wait until they all go dead. Then they'll all match.
Sounds better that way, anyhoo.
