2 users have had sony vaio a197Vp's setup with office XP std,
they have a dial up and a network profile that point to same pst

when windows XP sp2 loads up Outlook automatically fires up the profile selector.

This is causing issues ! its not in the startup group.

Any ideas?


regards

Have you done this
go to control panel --> mail --> show profiles and uncheck the option of asking to select profile
and force outlook to open one profile

Does that work ?

Are you saying when you log on to windows , outlook opens up
try this
start ---> run --> msconfig
go to startup tab and disable all applications except firewall and anti-virus
restart and check if outlook would open up

I meant did you disable all in the startup tab and then restarted and still outlook prompted the moment you booted up ?

Is this computer part of the domain and if yes , can you check with the sys admin for possible login script running when you login
