Now still using XP SP3. By chance have always used the service provider's mail handler.
Originally AOL and latterly Bt Yahoo, Chrome?
Every now and then I am directed to non functioning Outlook demanding a password and showing a screen name long forgotten and probably never used.
I am then in a loop which takes some button pushing to break.
Please save my vanishing abilities and patience with a path which will clear the nonsense and allow a working Outlook which can be used but doesn't intrude on my day to day use of Chrome
Outlook or Outlook Express? If you are not using the program then just delete the account from the program. However the program is probably set as your default email client and if you click on an email link then it will open.
I have found on my XP sp3 pc that every time there is a Windows Update for MS Office 2003, Outlook (office) gets reset as the default email client and I have to open my normal email client (Outlook Express) and remake it the default.
