Outlook Express take forever and a day to load/start?
 
This was happening to me... I knew why though. I had installed MSN Messenger (even though I swore I wouldn't ever) just to talk to a friend of mine. Then I realized that it never wanted to be off, so I removed it completely... although you can never remove it completely can you? ;) So then after that, my OE would be really slow getting started. It would take almost a minute before I could check my email. It was nuts. I tried reinstalling MSN Messenger to see if I could reverse the problem, but nope. Finally I stumbled upon the solution - Microsoft has an answer to this problem on their website, but it doesn't work for this particular problem. I have OE6 and Windows XP... I think it works for XP and 2000. Anyway - I figure there's probably one or two people out there somewhere who has a problem like this - maybe you don't even realize it... maybe it just annoys you and you don't have the patience to search for the right solution. Anyway - here's the fix..


Sometimes removing or disabling Windows (or MSN) Messenger causes OE to open slowly. This will shown by an entry in the system error log: The server {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout. To fix this, open Regedit and navigate to this key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
\CLSID
\{FB7199AB-79BF-11d2-8D94-0000F875C541}
\InProcServer32

In the right-hand pane, double-click on the (Default) value and delete whatever is entered there, leaving it blank. Click OK. Now perform exactly the same step with the key directly underneath, namely

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
\CLSID
\{FB7199AB-79BF-11d2-8D94-0000F875C541}
\LocalServer32

Once both (Default) values are empty, OE will open normally.

Very interesting solution :P
Reminds me of the time when I accidentally installed Windows Media Player 8 through the Windows Update procedure and as a result my laptop would not go into standby mode anymore...

If you will ever consider switching your mail client to a more flexible, lighter-weight yet powerful, virus-free email client, have a look at The Bat! http://www.ritlabs.com/the_bat/index.html
Been using it for years.

Wow, thanks. That's been bugging the heck out of me. The fix worked great. I've noticed this problem on a couple computers. Seems to happen only on the XP machines that have been upgraded to SP1. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks again.

From what I've read it works for XP and 2000. You're welcome. :D I knew there would be someone with the same problem out there.

Thanks Trigger. This has been annoying me for a while. Can't wait to get home to try this out!
