Would you tell me how to do this in a step by step way please? IE, how do I even get to the first step of LaunchOE.bat @ECHO OFF etc. Thanks.

create a batch file that launches Outlook Express.
The batch file also includes the procedure to zero the count.

REM ---------change registry so email wont compress---
call C:\Tasks\NoCompact.bat

Create a shortcut from LaunchOE.bat
Drag the shortcut to the desk top.
Use the shortcut to launch OE.
