Hello,
Ok so here is my problem.
After uninstalling OE i still have a folder in my program files. i have tried using unlocker software which works until i reboot and then the folder magically reappears, but empty!
i followed some very long winded and complicated instructions i found on the microsoft site and a few other sites like pcstats - going through the registry and renaming all the .dll files, but this also hasn't worked.
im guessing there is a hidden program somewhere that recreates this folder everytime i reboot my system.
having it there isnt causing me any problems, its just become a challenge to delete as
im a bit of a noob to tinkering with windows, and am beginning to realise why ppl hate it so much! In principle i really object, this is my computer and i dont want this folder on it so why shouldnt i be able to delete it?
any comments would be greatly appreciated.

After going into add/remove programs, look on the left, there is a button for add/remove windows components. Look in there. If there is outlook express, make sure to uncheck it. Probably have to reboot after doing so.
