upon loading XP i come to the log-in screen. when i click on my log-in profile it says i have "1 un-read mail message". but this isn't true. the message has been there for weeks now. all the messages in my Outlook and MSN e-mail accounts have all been read. any ideas?

If you know how to edit the registry, you can reset the counter.

It is in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\Current Version\UnreadMail

Then you need to select the e-mail address that it says their is a new message for...


Eg: nospam @ test .com

Then in the right pane, it should have Message Count


Then right click on MessageCount, a box will pop up with the value: 1 inside.

Change this to: 0

Then click ok, and close the registry editor.

Restart, and walla.
