    i've got msn running but outlook express makes another msn tray icon when i open outlook and i want to stop it from doing this how do i?

    the msn that outlook opens is an older version so it must be opening its own msn from somewhere???

    There's a option in the tools ....options ....general tab that ask if you want to auto log onto msn.....just uncheck it and the prob should go away......

    I would try this option (along the lines of Alloy25's response). The reason MSN starts when Outlook starts is because Outlook is using MSN as its Instant Messaging program. Go to Tools, then options, and on the "Other" tab disable the "Enable Instant Messaging in Outlook" option at the bottom.

    Use registry edits as a last option. The above info should suffice.
