I am using WXP Home SP2 and recently signed up with Earthlink as DSL provider. I have had a Hotmail account for a number of years and don't really want to dispose of it but would like to have an Earthlink email account as a place where I receive email from friends and family. I also have a gmail account for newsletters.
I use WinPatrol to monitor changes to my system. About every 15-20 minutes I get a message that the program currently associated with the file type has been changed -- either by Outlook or Earthlink...depends on whether I said yes or no to the last request for a change.
The program file associated with Outlook Express is "msimn.exe/eml:1%." I do not have access to Outlook Express on my startup programs file. I would like to stop this battle, but don't really want to delete either account at this time.
Is there some way I can stop this fighting for control so I'm not interrupted while I am trying to work or should I just delete one account or the other and call it good? I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
