HI,
Currently using XP Pro
I have just used the gpedit program to quit "Messenger" running when I load Outlook Express (my default email client). All seems fine as it has done the trick. But I notice now that it takes longer to launch Express? Basically stays on the screensplash for approx 30 seconds before it opens fully, and so able to view my Inbox?

Can anyone help me out with this one??

Thanks, that worked a treat!
Curious to know why Outlook opens so much quicker now??

It was trying to open messenger which you had told Windows not to open. Outlook relies heavily on Outlook Express for a lot of the internal aspects of it's workings
