recently a window pops up saying do I want Outlook Express to condense messages or something,
If the message is stating to "Compact folders" then read this >> Why does OE insist on compacting folders?
. Within that link is a way to modify your Registry to stop it doing so altogether if it continues. If the need to modify the entry is necessary, make sure you read this first >> How to backup the Windows XP Registry
Unless it is integral to the function of the computer I just can't see me ever using it! Something I did playing around with the computer turned it on.
It is integrated into the OS. The Add/Remove method you used does not actually uninstall it it just removes access to it from your All Programs list & Desktop as well as removing the exe from the Outlook Express program folder.
I can't seem to delete it or stop it from coming on at the beginning when I turn on the laptop.
If you mean it starts when the laptop starts try looking in Start > All Programs > Startup
& if msimn.exe
is listed, right click on it & select Delete
. Or you could download Autoruns from Here
. No install is necessary. Just run it & look for the entry msimn.exe Outlook Express
& uncheck it & or delete it.
