It's driving me nuts. I've tried all the user related fixes, the home group ones, and I do not have outlook express installed. But still it pops up every few minutes, minimizing anything I have going on, and wont let me touch it till I hit cancel. Makes playing games extremely frustrating.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi -
These are some basic reasons as wht Outlook Express will not work unless you have enabled XP Mode in Windows7 -
Please note that unless you think you have enabled any of these functions, there is a chance that it is caused by an infection that cannot be handled Here -
Have you installed Use XP Mode in Windows7, since O/E as such will not work in basic Win7 computers (see below)

Are you connected to another computer that uses XP still, and this may be causing this "linking" problem ??
Outlook Express itself will not install and will not run in Windows 7, as it is not compatible with it.

Use "XP Mode" in Windows 7 Professional (or more advanced versions)
If you have a computer with Windows 7 Professional (or more advanced versions -- not Windows 7 Home version--
see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/compare/default.aspx), then you can add a feature known as "XP Mode"
(see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/features/windows-xp-mode.aspx.

The only thing that could relate was I still had a windows xp entry in my bootloader. The only two I have now are Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate and Windows 7 64 bit (dont remember what version)
