Outlook Express loads very slowly

Cause: A possible cause for slow performance when starting Microsoft Outlook Express in Windows XP is the integration of Windows Messenger.

Solution #1: Is Messenger starting when Windows starts? If so, then that’s the cause of OE’s performance hit. If it is not running at startup, then OE is probably launching Messenger and waiting for it to fully initialise before it continues initializing OE itself. To prevent OE from launching Messenger, click Tools > Options and remove the check mark for “Automatically log on to Windows Messenger”. Then add a checkmark for “When starting, go directly to my Inbox folder”. Then click View > Layout, and remove the checkmark for “Contacts”.

Note that if you open the Contacts pane, or if you open the OE start page, then Messenger will launch in order to update the online status of your contacts.

Solution #2: Open the Registry Editor 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.
