Hello experts !

I have a multimonitor system. I recently changed from a four 21" CRT monitors to just two 25" LCD monitors, I love the improvement. But since I made the change it is appearing the following message every three or four minutes: "Personal folders. The file C:\Documents and settings\DELL\Local settings\Application data\Microsoft Outlook\Outlook.pst. cannot be found". Every single time it appears on my monitor # 1 I have to stop what I am doing until I make "click" on "O.K." Waht can I do to get rid of that annoying screen? thanks in advance for your help. Antonio Machado.

.PST files are Outlook data files.

I have to assume that you have Outlook on auto start and it can't find its file?

Hello KremmenUK: Thank you very much for making time for helping me. I don't know how to answer your question: what is Outlook? how can I check if I have that program on auto start? since I never use Outlook for my e-mails, how can I just get rid of any file related to outlook in my p.c.? please continue helping me. All the best, Antonio.

"Outlook" is a Microsoft Email Manager.
Possibly what has happened is this:
Maybe a Dell (monitor?) auto registration has "looked" for Outlook (default) in order to complete some registration details. As you don't use Outlook the software (Dell) is telling you this.
I link this to the problem as it arrived the same time as your monitors. I could be wrong.
Try pointing your Dell software in the direction of your default Email manager and see if that sorts it.

Hello wotbus: thanks a lot for helping me. Yes, I think that might be the root of the problem here. But how do I do what you suggest "Try pointing your DELL software in the direction of your default Email manager" ? where do I click first? what steps should I follow ? thanks a lot, please continue helping me. Best regards from North New Jersey (New York area). Where are you? Antonio.
