How do stop Outlook 2003 from launching itself on start up with Windows XP

I have done this - and the only program is the F-secure security one. Also, Outlook is getting really slow and takes 45 seconds to properly launch but still hangs and does not properly close. I have archived a lot but not much difference

Have a look in msconfig, and if anything for Outlook is listed untick it. (Start/Run/type msconfig and hit enter, look in the Start Tab)

I have used your tips and at least Outlook does not figure in the start up process. Thank you.

Now I have to sort out why it hangs after opening ans message that states that the personal folder data file was not closed properly .- I have archived but any thoughts most welcome
