Can anyone help with this really annoying problem. This inbox keeps popping up all the time. sometimes everytime a type a key it pops up.
I use AOL, Mcafee security and windows xp.
I haven't a clue how to stop it.

Which version of Outlook - or do you mean Outlook Express?

I've got no hope not sure if I have even replied properly so I'll try again.
Its microsoft outlook 2002

Yes, thanks. You inadvertently sent me a personal message. Please don't do that unless invited to do so.

In Outlook 2002, try Help > Detect and Repair.

The problem is I don't have any of the soft ware my ex husband kindly took it all when he left

Do you actually need Outlook? It is a pretty powerful program for scheduling appointments etc. as well as e-mail. If you just user e-mail why not use Outlook Express and in OE File > Import to import your messages from Outlook. Then either uninstall Outlook or stop it from starting on startup click here

Thanks very much for your help. I did what you said with the detect and repair and it didn't ask for the software and it hasn't popped up since. If it does I will uninstall it as you suggested.
Thanks again
