    Is it possible to get rid of Outlook Express on my machine?
    I just don't like it for some reason!

    Thanks!

    Go to the control panel/add-remove. Then click add/remove windows components. Look in there. :)

    Is it totally off the drive or does windows just hide it?

    We'll have to wait for Leo to answer that one. I would assume that it would remove it. Of course if you are game enough you could go to remove it & see what it says about disk space freed up.

    No need to uninstall it, with SP1 you can chose default programs...

    I think Kr0m is right. I've tried to uninstalled it and i restarted my computer and when i went back there,it was still on the list but with 00.00MB so im guessiong windows is just hiding it.

    Makes you wonder why it is in add/remove then. MS don't want to give anything up. :rolleyes:
