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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
