    I have XP home SP2, and i'm curious if there's a way to make my login screen NOT say how many unread mail messages i have.

    It displays something like, "4 unread mail messages - [email protected]) next to my name where i login, and it's usually always wrong anyways! it is for outlook by the way, if that helps any. but it will list other accounts such as my hotmail and yahoo accounts, and that varies too. (sometimes it will when i have messages, sometimes it won't)

    not sure why it does this, but i just want to make it go away!

    thanks for any help!

    #100 disable unread mail on the welcome screen

    To use the Regedits: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.
