View Full Version : Outlook 6 and XP

12-03-2001, 12:24 AM
I've got Outlook Express v.6.00.2600.0000 and running XP Pro. OE takes about 2 mins to load after clicking on the icon to launch it. After it's loaded, everything works fine. It's just the loading. I've read articles on MS about OE5 having this problem with McAfee but I'm running Norton 2002 and the links on MS refer to OE5 files, thus not working for me :( ... anyone have any ideas or experiencing the same thing?

This is sad, I'm replying to my own post. Anyway I found the problem. If you unistall or stop the MSN Messanger Service then everytime OE6 loads, it looks for MSN Msg and trys to load it. I found a hack on www.TweakXP.com and it is as follows:

"There has already been one suggestion for fixing Outlook's load time after uninstalling Messenger, however if you donít feel comfortable editing the registry simply open OE, click on the Tools menu, then Options, then go to the 'Other' tab, then un-check the box at the bottom that reads "Enable instant messaging in Microsoft Outlook".

Mine was due to uninstalling MSN Msg ... Don't know about your crashing. Sounds like a winders problem and not OE6 but I dunno

LOL! a microsoft product craahses because another microsoft product ! Funny shit;D

Well, it doesn't sound so much as crashing because of another Microsoft product, but more of due to an McAfee (if you are referring to admin's problem. SPAMIf you're referring to VoidedWarranty's problem, it sounds more like a problem due to the absence of a Microsoft program, that by default, isn't supposed to be able to be removed.

True, MSN Msg shouldn't be removed and there are covert steps used in removing it. So when OE6 couldn't load it, it freaked and like scanned the hard drive everytime looking for it.
