Hi all,

For some reason everytime I start Outlook 2003, after it loads, Outlook 
Express comes up as well.  I can't seem to find a setting anywhere that 
would enable me to do that?  Could it be found in the registry?

5.The problem is Word 2003 starts when I start Outlook 2003


  When I start Outlook 2003, Word.EXE shows up as one of the processes that 
are running.  You can see this under Task Manager in the tab "Processes".  
Under the applications tab you see only Microsoft Outlook. 
  When I minimize Microsoft Outlook it does not show up on the Taskbar and 
it decreases from utilizing roughly 12,000K to 4,000K memory.
  Word takes up roughly 30,000K but does not show up under the Applications 
tab.  If I click on the Word icon, it starts immediately.  If I Exit Word the 
winword.exe stays running under the processes.
   I have had the programs since the came out and they worked fine.  This 
just started yesterday.

  Any help or links would be very much appreciated.  Thank you
