    Outlook XP Slow after Messenger is disabled...


    When you choose to disable Windows Messenger to start and disable run in background, Outlook XP get very slow. It seems to check messenger.

    To fix this rename c:\program files\messenger folder to like c:\program files\messenger.OFF

    tip from TweakXP.com

    Now I can run MSN Messenger 5.0 and not run Windows Messenger 4.7 without slowing Outlook.

    You can also remove Windows Messenger from winXP: type this command "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove" without quotes.

    Previuosly this also stopped my MSN Messenger 5.0 from working, don't know how that is with the latest build 527

    glad it helped proudtower. I had the same problem and looked for a solution and this is what I found.
    For others, give it a shot if you think it's happening to you.

    BB, don't you have idea what can slow down Outlook XP when using Hotmail as an email?
    I discovered that it doesn't connect they way Outlook Express does, so instead of downloading the messages like it would do with POP, it connects to the server and it runs from the server. This makes Outlook Extremely slow (not to mention that I have 3 hotmail emails)
    Do you know any fix for this?
    I know this is not the threath, but I had stopped using Outlook because of this reason.
