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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
