Hey guys,

Did a search, didn't come up with anything, but I know this was a severe problem in the past... go to open up Outlook Express, loads the splash screen and waits for about 2 minutes to open up... I know one of the fixes was to rename the messenger folder MessengerOff, but now that they've incorporated AIM into it, makes it a bit difficult... What were the registry tweaks to improve loading speeds? Or besides that how can I speed it up? This is coming off of a near fresh format. :/

ah...in the registry you need to create this key if it doesn't exist:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Hide Messenger

and put a value of 2

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
