Increase speed of Outlook Express when Messenger is removed or disabled

Posted in Windows XP by Community Submission

For some users when they remove windows messenger or just disable it from starting up automatically they experience a great slow down when launching Outlook express. Users who experience such a slow down will find a error in the system error log saying The server {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout. The solution this problem is quite simple. Just Open up regedit and search for the string {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} and modify the keys InProcServer32 and LocalServer32 default key to a empty string. After a reboot, Outlook will start up as fast as possible.

Of course, to be on the safe side you should first export the keys to a safe location so you can reimport them if there are adverse results (not that there should be, but it can happen).
