For those of you who have a slow-loading outlook express after msn messenger has been removed this may help. I tried the other tweaks stating this and i didn't have the registry settings that it said. So I looked at the options and found this:
1. Open Outlook Express
2. Click on tool, options
3. Click on the general tab
4. Uncheck "automatically log on to windows messenger"
