Removing outlook calander from starting automatica

  chrisjmat 15:06 23 May 2008

I can't seem to remove outlook calander starting up automatically when I turn on my PC. I am running XP and using office 03. I have deleted it from the start menu but it still keeps loading when I switch on my PC.
Any help would be gratefully received

Go to C:/Documents and Settings/Your name/Start Menu/Programs/Startup.

You should find a shortcut icon to Outlook.

Delete it

Intrigued by this one. When you open Outlook normally does it open to the calendar or to the mail or contacts pages?

Try Start and in Run box type msconfig click ok and on the start up tabs see if there is anything about outlook. Uncheck it if present.

Hi Woolwell,
Yes found outlook as a common start up in system configuration utility and unchecked it. Seems to have done the trick thanks for your help
