    reaccuring window poping up (home premiem)

    I have just purchased a notebook running vista and i have a window poping up every 10 seconds asking to choose a profile. The window has outlook highlighted in the profile panel, I have clicked the ok button but the window just comes back after 10 seconds, this happens offline as well as online. any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Re: reaccuring window poping up (home premiem)

    Do you have Outlook installed?
    If so, is it running when the pop-up appears?
    If so, does it perform OK? - i.e. you can send and receive mail OK?

    I suspect this may be an Outlook issue rather than a Vista one and may move this thread to the Outlook Forum.

    Use the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> AutoRuns for Windows v8.61 to see what is start when you boot your system. If you are not sure post a screen shot from the Logon tab.

    Re: reoccurring window popping up (home premium)

    <hr>the first time i opened outlook was after the pop-up appeared.<hr>
    I may be wrong on this, but I believe that the first time you open Outlook you are asked to create a Profile. Since you didn't do that, then whenever you boot your machine, and if Outlook is configured to run at startup, it looks for that missing Profile and thus the popup window.

    1) IF you are not going to use Outlook, then uninstall it . . . problem solved. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    2) IF you would like to use Outlook but need help configuring a Profile, just ask away. Most likely your request will be moved to the Outlook forum. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    This is assuming that you are actually referring to Microsoft Outlook, which is a component of Microsoft Office and not Vista's own "Windows Mail". IF this is the case, then you will need to either create a profile or disassociated Windows Mail as your default e-mail client.
