Since I loaded XP SP2, every time I start the computer, Outlook opens. I don't use it and want to stop it opening. I've looked in 'MSconfig/startup and I can't identify it there (most of the things in there are gobbledegook anyway). Anybody know how to stop it, please?
It's MS Outlook. I use Outlook Express quite happily for my e-mail program. I use MS Schedule+ for my calendar/time manager/contacts list, it's an old program but I use it 'cos I always did and I have imported the files each time I've upgraded. I like it better than Outlook, which is why I don't want Outlook to open.
do you use msn messenger for a hotmail account because as soon as i loaded sp2 and booted up then outlook express was opend up by msn messenger sp2 had made it the default mail program i just unchecked it as default and made my other email default
I recall using Add/Remove programs in control panel, then selecting Office to remove the Outlook component since I too don't use it. I did have to go to the Internet Options to check that Outlook Express was my default mail handler though.
