Outlook Express is a feature of windows xp, if you go to COntrol panel and  then go to add remove programs-> you will (using classic view) see a linkk on the left that says to add windows features, there - you can add or remove outlook express. try adding it back in again and see if the issue goes away. It sounds like you have something on the machine that wants to use outlook express. that setting would have to be changed. or reconfigured if you dont want to use express.


The link above may help.
