    Hey guys. Right now the problem that of which I am having is the fact that my Outlook Express hangs when I open it. It will stay at the splash screen for (timed) about 1 minute, then it finally loads the program and checks the email.

    Has this happened to anyone else, and do you know why it happens?

    No, messenger isnt loading, and RAM is 192 megs. It used to load immediately, and now it doesnt.

    I connect using a 56k Modem, but I am thinking that it is not the problem. Its the program itself that is taking a long time to load in general, it hangs at the Outlook Express splash screen... When it finally opens it checks the email fine, but it takes a minute or two to get past the splash screen.

    It used to just pop right up.

    Hope this helps. found it here http://www.tweakxp.com/tweakxp/display.asp?id=108

    ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST WHEN CHANGING IT!


    For some users when they remove windows messenger or just disable it from starting up automatically they experience a great slow down when launching Outlook express. Users who experience such a slow down will find a error in the system error log saying The server {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout. The solution this problem is quite simple. Just Open up regedit and search for the string {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} and modify the keys InProc32 and LocalServer32 default key to a empty string. After a reboot, Outlook will start up as fast as possible.
