    I just installed Norton 2003 and now it takes forever for Outlook Express to open. Anyone know of a way to fix this?

    Norton 2003 What? Anti Virus? System Works? Internet Security? Utilities?

    Well I found out thats its because I renamed messenger in order to keep it from loading. Now I guess my ? is how do I keep messenger from loading and keep systemworks 2003.

    Renaming Messenger is what's slowing down OE, not NSW. The proper way to delete messenger is:

    start
    run
    type: RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
    enter
    restart

    Also, you can disable IM scannng in NAV.

    Well OE opened just fine before I installed Norton 2003 with messenger renamed. I have also disabled the IM scanning and it makes no diff.

    use the command to remove the messemger or use the attached vbscript. It will remove messenger and outlook will still start at normal speed.
