    Hi All,

    On my Windows XP startup screen it shows my account name and how many unread emails there are (as I'm sure you are all aware).

    Recently it has been showing 2 unread messages and when I click on this information it displays two @aol.com email address. They look like one of my sons friends email address's but I'm not sure whereabouts on my PC they would be stored in order for me to delete them.

    I have checked my Outlook inbox and my partner has checked her Hotmail account to see if there is any reference to these two emails but without luck.

    Is it possible that my sons friend logged onto his AOL account on my computer and there were two unread messages there for him? If so, why would my computer keep a record of this and inform me of these two unread messages every time I switch it on?
    Is there anyway to delete the emails and/or this message informing me of the unread mails?
