Outlook Profiles Auto Load on startup of laptop

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
