Can anyone help me please, If I connect to the internet via windows outlook email program, two things happen, firstly windows messenger auotmatically loads which I do not use, how can I prevent this or better still remove it, I camnnot find it in add/remove programs. Secondly again if I connect to the internet via outlock , I find myself being disconnected from the internet after a few minutes. If I connect to the internet via internet explore then none of the problems occur. os is win xp home service pack 2 512ram 2by 80gig hard drives
Hi Jackcoms and wotbus@ sorry for the delay only just got back to my p.c. yes the problem with windows messenger was cured by the disable program from wotbus@, thankyou both for your help.But I still have the problem that if I connect to the internet via outlook it connects ok then does a send and receive o.k and then promptly disconnects. But if I connect via internet explorer and then access my email via the envelope it stays connected any ideas. Thanks again
When the Send / Recieve progress window is open, there is a box close to the top, it should say something like "automatically disconnect after send / recieve" .... uncheck this box and your internet connection will be maintained.
