I don't know of anything, specifically, that can be run at startup.

 

You can, however, make the Junk e-mail filter substantially more aggressive both in what it identifies and/or what it does with what it identifies, which includes deleting identified items rather than putting them in the Junk folder.

 

If you open Outlook Help and then search on "Change the level of protection in the Junk Email Filter" you'll find step-by-step instructions for doing this.

 

I'm also not clear as to whether you actually want to delete that folder itself (which I doubt you can) or its contents.

what about this, in Outlook, click the Home tab, Junk, Junk email options, tick the box Permanently delete suspected junk...

but would you not want to double check the item in the Junk folder first?

 

 

edit: sorry britechguy, just re-read last part of your sentence #2 and I've covered the same area.

Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.
