  • 1. Microsoft Messenger
    Could anybody tell me how to get rid of MS Messenger? I've tried removing it using Control Panel=>Add/Remove Programs & also unchecking it in MSConfig=>Startup, but everytime I go online the icons back in the notification area (bottom right of desktop)... Many thanks.
  • 2. changing font color in folders
    In my old windows 98 I could easily change the font color under "customize folder". My music folders have background pics and I needed to change the font color to, say red if I had a darker pic as background. I now have Windows XP Pro and can't seem to do this change of font color anymore. Can someone please help? Thanks

> longer uses.  I deleted the email account, but no matter

From where did you delete this email account? Did you do it from MSN
Explorer's "manage users" page?

1.Can't access hotmail or .msn email from IE or MSN Explorer

On a Dell laptop, running Windows XP Home, and connected 
thru a local ISP, I suddenly can no longer access web-
based email, specifically or 
accounts.  Microsoft Outlook Express works fine to access 
email on the local ISP.
Further, our preference is to operate out of MSN Explorer 
since it's easier/more fun for my kids.  When accessing 
MSN Explorer, the box appears in the center of the screen, 
the password gets entered, then in the lower right, it 
shows "attempt 1" then "attempt 2" up thru about 4, then 
errors out as cannot access, or the dial up is not 
responding.  At least IE loads, and operates otherwise 
normally, but doesn't access hotmail, or .msn either.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled IE, MSN Explorer, 
Outlook, and Outlook Express, none have fixed the basic 
problems.  My other computer, running the same setup, 
works fine.  HELP!!

2.Getting access to WIn XP User Info under new WIndows 2000 User Account


I just joined my WIn XP desktop to a domain served by a 
computer running Windows 2000 and logged in using a new 
user account I created in Active Directory.  

Unfortunately, in doing so, I've lost all access to all 
the files in the My Documents folder, all bookmarks in 
IE, my Outlook email account, etc.

Is there any thing I can do to "migrate" all that stuff 
over to my new user account?


3.Display of Unread Email Count on Windows XP User Account login screen

I've noticed that Windows Live Mail seems to cause an unread email message 
count on the Window's XP user login screen. It strikes me that isn't the 
business of anyone not logged on to the user account with unread mail. Is 
there anyway to stop the display or is it a feature of WLM that it requires 
users to give up some privacy? 

4.Not able to sign in on Limited User Account (Win XP)

Hi, I've setup an account for some younger kids but Messenger 6 doesn't 

I get this error message upon trying to login with the LIMITED ACCOUNT:  

Sorry, we could not sign you in because the sign-in name you entered does 
not exist or your password is incorrect.

If you have forgotten.....bla bla bla

I am able to login fine with the administrator account with the same 
Username/pass that didn't work on the limited.
