There is ones out there for outlook Express but I have yet to see one for Outlook. I know it is a reg mod. Rember Outlook not Outlook express.

Sure delete everything in:

Quote:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F3A614DC-ABE0-11d2-A441-00C04F795683}\LocalServer32


It will be the path to Messenger. Back it up if you think you'll need it again (unlikely!)

Messenger is an option to turn on or off when you load Outlook.
Did you turn that option off?

Open outlook | Tools | Options | Other tab

then uncheck the box at the bottom of that tab saying
Enable Instant Messaging in Outlook.

If you've already done that, I know this site has what you need:

heh that reg hack works fine for me (Outlook 2003) weird! I don't seem to have the disable Messenger option. All I have is 'Enable Person Names Smart Tag' it does have a messenger icon by it though. No matter though as the reg thing works for me, but just out of interest.

Are you running Windows XP and having trouble with it running slow or hanging up when switching between users? Maybe these tips will help resolve your problems:

Have you recently disabled the MSN Messenger? If so try re-enabling it to restore your access to your outlook.
Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 27510 will explain the behavior and why this is happening.


Sometimes removing or disabling Windows MSN Messenger causes OE to open slowly. This will be shown in yor system logs: {FB7199AB-79B-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

I have recently found an article posted that will help resolve this issue:

To fix this, open Regedit and navigate to this Key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

\CLSID
\{FB7199AB-79B-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
\CLLSID
\{FB7199AB-79B-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541}
\LocalServer32

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



You may also want to try and RE-Installing Internet Explorer.
