    It is actually activating your windows messenger.

    You need to go into your Outlook settings and turn it off.

    I don't remember what option in there. I don't use outlook express anymore I just use outlook.

    I remember something regarding windows messenger service.

    under launch windows messenger when outlook starts kind of a thing.

    Sorry it was a long time ago.

    MSN Disable in win XP

    How to Disable MSN Messenger and the Network Messenger Service



    Make sure to back up registry and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs

    Step 1) To Disable Messenger MSN from running go to the start menu and select RUN. In the window that appears type regedit (see example below)


    Step 2) The Registry editor will now have opened. Navigate to the following Key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft

    Now create a new key by selecting Edit from the main menu bar. Now select New then Key.
    Name this new Key: Messenger

    Step 3) Now select the newly created Messenger Key and create another new Key. Only this time we are going to name it: Client (The key should look like the example below...)


    Step 4) Next we have to create a DWORD value. So Right Click the new Client Key and select New then DWORD.
    Name the DWORD PreventRun (see example below.)


    Step 5) Now we need to give it a Data Value of 1


    Step 6) Now restart Windows XP and you will have successfully Disabled Messenger MSN


    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Note:: Although the name of the service is similar, Messenger Service in Windows XP is not related to instant messaging programs such as Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger. Disabling instant messaging programs is not necessary and not recommended. Disabling instant messaging programs will not prevent Messenger Service spam on your computer.
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    To disable the Messenger Service in Windows XP (Caution: If your computer is part of a corporate network, talk to your system administrator before taking this action.)
    1.



    Click Start and then click Control Panel.



    2.



    Click Performance and Maintenance. (If you do not see the Performance and Maintenance icon, you may be using Classic View. You can skip to step 3 below, but you must double-click Administrative Tools.)



    3.



    Click Administrative Tools.




    Figure 1. Double-click Services in Administrative Tools.





    4.



    Double-click Services as shown in Figure 1 above..



    5.



    Double-click Messenger.



    6.



    In the Startup type list, choose Disabled as shown in Figure 2 below.




    Figure 2. Choose Disabled from the Startup type list in Messenger Properties.





    7.



    Click Stop, and then click OK.
