Whenever I boot my machine I see this message now.  It seems strange as I am not using Outlook Express.  Maybe this is just a bad message and really applies to regular Outlook but I wanted to ask first.


"To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages.  This may take a few minutes."

in Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Set Program Access and
Defaults, Custom, Email and Uncheck enable access to Outlook Express

You may used Outlook Express a long time ago and forgot.  Symantec Antivirus also could be a cultpit or Nero plugins or some other software.

Also delete all files in c:\program files\outlook express

Hope it helps.

i did the 1st part but to no avail.

The second part (delete all files in the outlook express directory) i could not do because it says msoe.dll is in use.  I even could not rename the directory..

OK so do it in safe mode then.
