Outlook Express 6 Takes Forever To Start

Ever since I installed broadband 2 months ago, OE takes an absolute age to load.

The blue window with the OE logo sits on my desktop for several minutes before it loads up.

I have checked my PC for a virus and that is all clear.

Anyone have any idea what is happening.

I am running XP.

Followed your instructions and came across the following

Export and Delete the ProtectedStorage Value
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

Export and then delete the ProtectedStorage key from the following:

Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.
Type the following command:
c:\windows\system\pstores.exe -install

This command replaces the correct ProtectedStorage registry key.
Quit all programs and restart the computer.

Question is how do I export and delete the protected storage value.
