i checked my friends email and now their number of emails is on my name on the windows home screen/ how do i get rid of the address and number of emails which is not mine? i wish to keep mine. thanks everybody
i use Windows Xp. before i log into my account, it has my name and underneath a number of emails that i have in the account. I do not know to which program this number is aligned but its presumably msn hotmail because thats what i used. I have heard there is some sort of tool you can download that wipes these counts off.
i'm at a loss as to explain it any better! i turn on the computer, windows loads and i need to log in! but, before i log in when i put the mouse over my name on the windows home screen a message saying 48 unread mail messages appears! These 48 mail messages belong to an email account which is not mine. all i wish to do is clear this message off the screen leaving only MY unread mail messages!!
""The Welcome screen is displayed by default on Windows XP Home Edition-based computers and on Windows XP Professional-based computers that are not members of a domain. Under your name on the Welcome screen, there is a hyperlink that indicates the number of unread e-mail messages. If you click this link, it reveals which account the messages are from, and how many each e-mail provider contains. For example, if you have three unread e-mail messages, and you click the hyperlink under your name, you see the following information (where UserID is your user name for the corresponding e-mail account): [email protected] (2) [email protected] (1) The hyperlink is displayed only if you have an e-mail client that is capable of updating the Welcome screen running on your computer. Currently, there are only two programs that support this feature: Microsoft Outlook Express and Microsoft Windows Messenger. ""
I can only suggest that you delete your friends account details in Outlook Express and Microsoft Windows Messenger so that they are not there to be updated
