Server Acount name for icoming mail (POP3) changes to lacalhost after reboot in Windows XP OE 6.0

I am running Windows XP with OE ver 6.00.2900.2180. I have two different mail accounts with different POP3 servers registered. When I restart the computer the server name for Incoming Mail (POP3) changes to localhost and then OE is not able to find the server. It is easy to change manually, but as soon as I restart the computer it is automatically changed to localhost again. Any idea what is causing it?

This is usually caused by certain Anti-virus programs.  I have personally seen it happen with Trend PC-cillin.  I think old versions of Norton Antivirus could cause this too.  You may need to remove and reinstall your antivirus software.

OK, I will try to uninstall and reinstall my anti-virus software. I am running Trend Office Scan 5.58

Yes, I have seen that exact problem with OfficeScan 5.58 specifically.  Trend offers a patch for it:
